I am definitely not use to this blogging thing. I haven't found the time to post in over a month!!! Nothing much has occurred over the past month anyway. We have been busy providing paperwork to the loan company and patiently waiting for the city to approve the permit to build. Well... we finally received the good news. Our permit was approved on 10/04/2013!!! Our home is now on the construction list. Our sales rep told us that the clock officially starts ticking now and they have four to five months to complete depending on weather.
The next week will be pretty busy. We have our pre-construction meeting set for October 17th. We also need to find an independent home inspector. I don't think many people consider this with new construction, but for us, it is very important. This is a home that we will be in for awhile and we want to ensure it is constructed well.
Over the next few months, we will be updating a lot more and with pictures. It feels like we have been waiting forever. I can now feel the excitement!!!
