Like I could resist some change!

Ok, it was necessary change, not a matter of being irresistible! Hubby initially planned on doing our own gas line for the dryer, we already paid for the upgrade for the gas range and hot water heater. But it kind of dawned on him that he would have to do this the second we moved in, which isn't realistic! And, like the day after we weren't allowed to make changes, I read a blog that insisted on shelves in the owners shower. So we called Chris and begged for both yesterday. He warned us that he would do his best but RH is pretty strict with no changes once the 21 days hits.......drum roll....... We have more gas and shelves! Yay! I have no doubt that Chris went to bat for us!

Our pre-construction meeting is set for the 30th and can't wait to get some official dates and such.

Went out to the model to show the kids this weekend, they were very excited! We were hoping the house would have started by Christmas and were going to show them everything that day. But Hubs thought best they see the dirt WITH the model home, smart man! The little one was having the hardest time understanding that the furniture wasn't coming with the house, it was cute. The unfinished basement is now officially a skating rink and a disco ball has been requested! And there was no blood shed over room selection, shocked to say the least!

But I have to say, as we showed them the different selections, I am doubting myself with ALL of them! I'm sure it will be beautiful, but oy vey, the stress of waiting! Who knew?! A friend was over last night and made a comment on how dark the kitchen will be if we put hardwood in, which is the plan, so slight panic attack over that now!!

Still waiting....

Nothing going on but, that's right, waiting! Have I mentioned I am NOT a patient person? Our pre-construction meeting is scheduled for the 30th and we break ground the week of January 6th. So I spend time reading lots of blogs, such great tips and input. That's all, can't imagine any blogging coming too soon. Just really excited and feeling quite grateful these days. Gratitude makes waiting bearable! Kinda haha!

Not much to say.....

Just a quick update.... We asked Chris not to try and push up our build date. We had to make the decision about our lease, so we extended until mid April. With the timeline we have, it should be perfect- I was told our estimated delivery date is April 1st. As much as I would like to go ASAP- we also have to be responsible and not have two dwellings at once if we can help it! And can I just say that by Thursday I was all kinds of a mess, stressing if we would get the OK this week to move up, it's just not worth the extra stress either!!

We requested to get the pre construction meeting on the books- with the holidays and work, December is looking a tad busy. Chris emailed back on his Turkey Day break and asked for some dates. What a great sales rep!!

Until the pre construction meeting.....
