House Update

Well, I sort of introduced myself and then vanished.  That was rude!  Sorry! Embarrassed

Anyway, in case you don't remember, DH and I are having a house built.  I posted a picture in January and today we had our pre-drywall walk through.  Here's how it's (yes, that's a nod to the grammar post below) looking now:

Definitely a step up from the concrete slabs I posted before. We're the unit in the middle. Smile

Re: House Update

  • Awesome! Congratulations. When do they expect to be done?

  • Thank you!  March 31 is our closing date and we just scheduled a "pre-closing" walk through for March 30.

    This is so surreal, especially considering the fact that we just started looking for a home in December!

  • Whoa, that looks massive! What's the square footage? Yay for progress. :)

  • Looks sweet. Is it a 3 unit condo?

     When we were in the house hunt we started looking first week in January and closed March 31st. We didn't think in a million years the process would be as quick as it was. We weren't planning to buy until fall-ish time frame. Sometimes things just work out.

    So true.  We were just tentatively looking and meeting with an agent and then BAM! we bought a house.

    Your new home looks great.  Are you getting to choose all the finishings and features?

    This was also us. I keep getting nostalgic, because this time last year we were putting in an offer on our house. :)

  • It's a 3 unit townhouse and ours alone is just shy of 2200 square feet.  The space rivaled a lot of the single family homes that were in our price range.

    We did get to pick everything inside, but the siding/brick and shutter color were predetermined.  I understand why that would be the case, but I'm still slightly annoyed by it.

    OOOO!  That's so big!

    Yeah, I would be annoyed by the rules about the outside, but hopefully they'll be neutral, non-offensive choices.  That sounds fun to get to pick it all on the inside, though.

  • Yay for progress how exciting! Can't wait to see the finished product.
