Changing our mind!

This is all becoming real now that we sold our house and the more we thought about our choices the more we wanted to change some things. We called our rep but she thinks it might be to late but will ask for us. It can't hurt to ask right? We would really like to add the 4 ft extension in the garage, the windows in the morning room and the grand island in the kitchen. I am not sure why we didn't add these in the first place but we will see what happens. If it can't be done we are still happy with what we will have! We just got a call and we can make the changes!! So excited!! I am finding it harder and harder to make time to write this blog but I really want this experience documented so I am going to try!! We are still waiting for the commitment letter from the buyer of our current house. Ryan Homes won't start building our new house until we have that so we have some more waiting to do...

House is sold so the blog can start!

We started our journey with Ryan Homes about 7 weeks ago We had our current home to sell before the building could begin so I was hesitant to start blogging before that happened. We accepted an offer last night so I figured I should get this started! We are building the Savoy in Syracuse, Ny and here is what we chose;

-Elevation A with a full front porch
-taupe siding with white trim and black shutters
-service door in the garage
-morning room
-maple cognac spice kitchen cabinets
-stainless steel appliance package
-fireplace in the family room
-overhead lights in all of the bedrooms and the living room
-recessed lights in the kitchen and the family room
-ceiling fan rough-in in the morning room
-gas water heater

We have already been approved by NVR and have all of our colors selected now we just wait. We are really excited to be building this home and can't wait to raise our kids in a home that is big enough for all of us. We have 2 boys (4 and 21mths) and a dog and are running out of room quickly
