Went down to see the house yesterday...no change from our previous visit other then another inspection sticker added on Friday - couldn't exactly tell what the inspection was for since the handwriting was too sloppy. While we were there we dropped in to see our sales rep which worked out perfect since he had just gotten back answers on our final change requests.
So I think this is our FINAL Change Order:
Deleted the GE Hybrid Water Heater - Ryan Homes was not comfortable approving it since it is only a 40 gallon capacity and we have so many bathrooms plus the large soaking tub. We decided to stick with the standard 80 gallon electric water heater for now and keep an eye on the technology and see what happens in the future.
Changed our siding color from Taupe to Georgian Grey
Added the Moen Shower Spa system to the master bath shower
Changed the Kitchen faucet from the Moen Collonade to the Moen Brantford and added a Soap Dispenser
Changed the Bay Window roof from White to Black - NO CHARGE - yahoo
To either side of our stove there are 12" cabinets with drawer on top and shelves below. We changed these to the Timberlake CFO option which eliminates the drawer which then allows us to add the next option.
Add a cold water rough in to the right of the stove and cut a hole in the granite. This will accommodate a pot filler which we will have to provide. Moen does not make a counter top pot filler and Ryan Homes distributor was not able to get the one we wanted, so we will purchase it ourselves.
On the Gourmet Island we are removing the 2 standard 33" cabinets and replacing them with 33" cabinets that have 2 full width pullout drawers - great for storing pots and pans and large appliances(crock pots,etc) and makes them super easy to get to.
We have been bouncing back and forth on the stairs carpet runner...we decided to leave it off and see how it is...can always add it later, but would be a mess to remove if we don't like it.
So I think that is it...nothing left to do except sit back and enjoy the building of our new home!!!
Will talk with our PM on Monday, but sounds like this week will be a pretty boring week. Will probably just back fill around the foundation and maybe pour the basement since all the below basement grade plumbing appears to have been completed which I think is what the inspection sticker from Friday was for. While we were there we saw that the lot diagonally across the corner from ours is being prepared for breaking ground this Wednesday.
