Updates! Months later!!!

Hey everyone!!!
I am soooo sorry it took me so long to give an update on how we are doing!!!
We're doing GREAT! Loving every bit of our Condo and our neighborhood is being built up more and more. They have just completed one more building and I think they may start to build another in January.

We've decorated a little bit. Haven't hung anything on the walls because I want to paint first before putting holes in it. So far, we've had THREE get togethers at our house. We LOVE sharing it and it's PERFECT for the holidays!!!! I've got to find camera charger (LOL) so I can take pictures and post for you guys! I hope all of you are doing well, I bet most if not all of you have settled into your new homes. I hope you're enjoying them as much as we are enjoying ours!!

More updates to come (I promise!)

Final Walk Through Complete

Yesterday was our Final Walk Through!
It all went really well! Our PM showed us the ropes on EVERYTHING in the house.
There were only a few things that needed to be touched up, minor things:

-Packaging glue will be removed from lamps in kitchen
-Column was slightly knicked on he botton
-(Not sure what it's called) but a strip of wood isn't sealed on the the side of the counter all the way
-Some packacking left on the refrigerator

While we were there, we ran the dishwasher, popped a bag of popcorn in the microwave, turned on the oven and stove, ran a cycle in the dryer and washing machine, tested all toilet flushes, made sure all windows open and closed properly, among many other things....

Then my Father-In-Law (who's a Pastor) blessed the house. I wasn't moving in unless it was blessed first! Most of our neighbors have already moved in. And they are already starting to build another building in our community. We are really happy with what we have!!!!

Now, moving begins and NVR doesn't need ANYTHIGN else from us! YAY~~~!!!!!
Now let the moving adventure start!

Almost there!!!!!!

So, we've got 7 more days! So excited!!!
We went by again on Saturday and they took the protective cardboard off of the floor. I think they did an excellent job on laying down the floors! The Hubs and I decided to get the lanolium now and add tile later and we are really happy with our choice! I love our appliances too! They put blue tape where ever there was a touch up needed and it seems like they pretty much covered everything.
Our apartment is pretty much to the point of being bare bones. Most everything is in boxes. We are doing our last load of laundry tonight until we move in. Right now, we are living out of bags and the rest of our stuff of packed. I am PRAYING that everything will go ok with closing and nothing gets moved!!
I spoke to our PM today to let him know that we are really very impressed with everything. We did notice that the lock on the french doors is slightly off, so I notified him about that. Our PM told us that they be cleaning and touching things up this week. I am so ready to move in! Enjoy the pics below!

Intersting tidbit of info....

I thought this was interesting so I'm posting it in case anyone out there is debating single family vs. condo with Ryan.
With a Condo, you are NOT required to have Homeowners Insurance at closing. Although insurance is something we do still plan to have and I think is a good investment in a new construction, it's not required for condiminiums.

The reason for this, is because with condos, we pay HOA fees and that fulfills the requirment.

Nothing too special otherwise going on...just packing and cleaning out our apartment. I'm praying nothing goes wrong and our closing date stays the same!!

Totally In Love....

I can't express how good it feels to know that we chose a house for US, how it fits are personality perfectly, and it's really OURS!!! The Sales Rep let us in (thanks BD!) and we were totally blow away! The pictures don't do it justice! They've added carpet, the lights are working, bathroom appliances are in, and kitchen appliances as well. We didn't want to leave!!!! Take a look at the pics below and I'm off to nap before I pack some more.
Oh yah, they also added grass and a sidewalk in front of the house but I forgot to snap the picture. Will add sometime later!

First floor Powder Room

Kitchen (stove hasn't been set into place just yet)

Bannister leading up to 2nd floor, you can see some of the carpet.

Formal Dining Room and Living Room (I think it looks like a palace!!!)
