We're building a house! We met this evening at 5:30 with our realtor, the builder and his realtor. We signed some preliminary paperwork--the contract for the build--and then talked about all the things we have to pick out (more on that in a sec).
The builder has already applied for the building permit for the house and should have it within a couple of weeks. Then things really start to move.
Okay, now back to the fun part. By August 1 we will have made our selections for cabinets (both for the kitchen and the master bath), the flooring--hard woods on the main level, carpet in the basement and upstairs, and tile in the bathrooms, granite for the kitchen and master bath counters, marble for the guest baths, both indoor and outdoor lighting fixtures, the color of our siding and exterior trim, and finally what we want surrounding the fireplace. Needless to say we were COMPLETELY overwhelmed by the thought of all of that tonight. We walked into the room where they have all of the samples and it was just amazing.
Now it's time to begin reading Home and Garden magazine and watching HGTV. Ha!
All in all it was an amazing evening.
Oh and Andrew got a mandolin today...for free. I'll let him tell the story later.
We miss you all and can't wait to see you soon!
