We have footers!!

So, I took a cruise up to the site last night and being the lazybones that I am, I drove by, didn't see anything of interest and came back home.

My friends (soon to be neighbors) were on their nightly check of their site and left me a vms that our footers had been poured.  My husband went up on his way to the gym and took this:

WEEEEEE!!! Let the lot stalking begin :)

Pre-Construction Meeting done!

We met with our PM on Thurs 4/12 and we love him!  Such a nice guy.  Very laid back and seems really knowledgeable.  We went through our lot plan, how long the driveway would be, the left and right boundries, etc.  Reviewed our spec sheet and found out that "we" forgot to check the box for rubbed bronze interior door handles...even though I have told our rep a thousand times I wanted everything rubbed bronze...just add another $250.00  At this point, what does it matter :)

We are on schedule to close the 2nd week in July!!  It feels like forever, I hope it goes fast!

Oh, and someone asked me about the upgraded landscaping.  In our plan, that is a seeded lawn and some additional shrubs in the flower beds.  Plus you get two trees. One on the street and one on the corner of the house.  Here's the diagram they showed us.

Scheduling our Pre-Construction meeting

We are tentatively scheduled for April 12th!  YEAH!!  I feel like we rushed around and made all of the choices and decisions and then we've been sitting around waiting, so I am excited to get started! 

We are not doing the Ryan island, I wanted something different, so I've been scouring the internet looking for's just a few that I loved :)

We chose these cabinets (not nearly as upgraded as these) but we got the butterscotch glaze and I like the look of another color island.

This island I found on ebay.  You can get it without the top, so I would have the granite match ours and have them stain this a complementary color (cherry or distressed black??)

My favorite feature...pull out garbage cans

Another one I love...but probably out of the budget :)
