We have had a very busy couple of weeks:
My wife brought in 4 companies to quote us on moving stuff out of house #1 and store till we move in the new house. As always, she did a great job negotiating (ThrifyAmy you would be proud). Good price on the moving/delievery and she negotiated for 3 months free storage!!!
All inspections went smoothly on House #1, no surprises. Settlement was Friday and went off without a hitch....yeah!!!
Met with our sales rep and did our final change order...imagine that...finally!!! Here's what we changed:
Changed our brick color again(3rd or 4th time I think) - It's now the darkest red - Commonwealth
4 more stone samples to select from - 1 of the new ones was nice, but stuck with the Bucks County
Decided to tile the whole area where the bar will be
Master Bath tile will be installed on a diagonal to give it a unique look
Added the Tray Ceiling to the Dining Room - I've always liked that...I knew my wife would finally decide to do that - she thinks it was all her idea...what she doesn't know is I have been whispering "Dining Room Tray Ceiling" while she was sleeping...LOL
And the best news of all....we moved up our ground breaking date. Preconstruction Meeting is this Wednesday and we should break ground Wednesday June 1st or worst case June 8th. We are targeting the last week of August for settlement...that will be very aggressive...no room for slippage...sales rep says it is an 85 day build process...needless to say we are both sooo excited that the build process is finally here. Even our sales rep commented that when we first signed the contract in December, the June start seemed a long way off.
We are targeting July 1st to have House #2 on the market.
