Pre Drywall meeting and SHUTTERS!

We had our Pre-drywall meeting this morning. Our PM walked us through the house and pointed out everything ... outlets, Light switches, air vents, plumbing etc. Everything looks great! Our realtor used to build custom homes, which is a huge plus because he knows what to look out for. He is very impressed with Ryan Homes!

Shutters are up! Love the Navy! Drywall will start by the end of the week. We are estimated to close a week earlier than anticipated, June 25! The countdown is on!

We have siding!

It has been 41 days since ground breaking and we have siding! Things are moving QUICK! We have our pre-construction meeting set up for next Tuesday. Once we walk through the house and review the electrical, HVAC, plumbing etc with the PM the drywall begins! I just can't believe that Kyle and I will be in our HOME in less than 2 months!

With Memorial day this weekend, Kyle and I are hoping to get some great deals on    
EVERYTHING we will need for the new house!

First and Second Week of Construction

We have a walls!

The construction began and it is moving along faster than I can post!

After the first week the excavation began and the foundation was poured!

At the end of week one we had studs up on the first floor! I just can't believe how quickly this house is going up. We will have a second floor by the end of week three!

It nice to finally see the true size of our backyard!

This picture shows the rocks leading up to our two car garage. To the immediate left of the garage will be the front door and the single window is my office!
Here is the back of house. Two windows on the right belong to the family room and the room to the left is the Morning Room! I can't wait to eat dinner at a kitchen table!

Pre Construction Meeting


I have to say, working with the Ryan team has been great! Our sales coordinator is Courtney. She is so knowledgeable. We had our Pre Construction meeting and met our Project manager, Andy. We went through our home plans in detail to make sure nothing was missed. And of course, everything was perfect! I am just so excited!

We did have to reselect out exterior color choices. I am very excited with what we ended up with. Especially because I found the cutest welcome mat from Ballard Designs that will go perfect with the front door! Don't you think?!

We have the same stone and siding colors we originally picked. The shutters and front door will be NAVY! Love it! I think it will go better with all the paint colors I picks for the interior of the house.
