I can't believe it's finally here! We had our walk through yesterday afternoon (after a particularly stressful 16 hour night shift, it was NOT my best day). I have to commend my husband and our project manager for putting up with my moody, cantankerous self as we checked out this beautiful property!
I would like to give kudos to our project manager Jared!! He's amazing. I was and am highly impressed with his level of attention to detail. We felt like he treated this entire process as though he were building his own house. Several times when we walked through the house before it was complete we noticed things that Jared had marked and left notes about fixing. Most of them were small, little items that we probably would have never noticed, but the fact that HE noticed them and did something to make it right just proves to me that we definitely made the right decision to go with Ryan Homes.
Many of our friends are quite skeptical as the construction of our home was completed rather quickly (63 days!). We have assured them that no corners were cut and no quality sacrificed during the building process. We were lucky in that we were the veritable pioneers returning to a ghost town and investing in a property. The builders who originally envisioned this subdivision have long since pulled out after the housing crisis hit, leaving 41 home sites complete in a neighborhood of 1000 lots! We took a chance and pulled the trigger as the first to build in this subdivision following RH's take over of the distressed lots. I'm sure that contributed to the quickness with which our home was completed as they had multiple crews available to work on the house. Now, however, there are 4 more homes in the process of being built and another 2 have recently sold! I'm seeing dollar signs already. Although I don't think I can ever picture myself willingly moving from this house, it's good to know that maybe it will retain its value.
We are closing on May 30th at 11am! I was supposed to work that night but I know there will be NO concentrating that evening. I think maybe Meghan and I will go down to the house with a few items and maybe paint her bedroom and the downstairs that weekend while Jeff works. Because of our work schedules and Meghan not getting out of her current school until June 8th, I think we are going to move June 10 & 11. I'll keep everyone abreast of the situation.
