1) We had our pre-drywall walk through. Everything looks great. Our project manager is estimating the house will be done the first week in October. Our Loan Officer is thinking we'll have an October 8th closing date. Fingers crossed!
2) My Father-In-Law came with us for the walk through - just an extra set of eyes and he's familiar with building codes and whatnot. He was impressed! In fact, he said that our house is built better than our friends house that was built last year by a different builder. Their house is almost 1,000 sq ft smaller than ours and they paid the same price we're paying for ours. It makes me that much more confident in our decision to build our house through Ryan.
3) We got a little surprise with our front porch lighting. Instead of just having the 1 light by the door - there are 2 lights in the ceiling of our porch! I love it!
4) We spoke with our loan officer today and locked in our interest rate at 4%!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so psyched! We need less $$ than we expected for our closing costs AND our monthly payment is going to be $60 less per month than we originally thought!! (And that is with adding the $14,000 morning room!!!!!) I am so excited right now. We are only paying approx. $700 more a month for this new house that is 1500sq ft bigger that our current house. I am so thrilled, we got such a good deal, we're under my target monthly payment - I feel really fortunate!
