Its done! The contract is signed, the check was handed over, and the sold sticker got put on the plot plan.
(I don't know why we didn't get a star. I want a STAR!)
We were in the model home signing paperwork and asking questions for nearly 3 hours. THREE HOURS. We went over some of our choices again and stuck with most of what we had chosen originally. As soon as I remember what they were, I'll list them. :)
Something we are still thinking about is the recessed lighting in the kitchen. We haven't added it yet, but our sales rep showed us what comes standard for lighting in the kitchen and it looks like it might not be all that useful, or pleasant to look at. Anyone have any opinions on recessed lighting v. regular?
So, even after 3 hours, we aren't done yet. We do have to set up the standard appointments with Guardian and the flooring company, but in addition, there were questions about the County disclosure form, which had changed since the last time she signed a contract. There was a new question, and not one of us could figure out what it meant. Once we figure it out, we'll drop off that section back to her and we'll be on our way. I was a little disappointed that we weren't able to complete the entire process yesterday, but would rather fully understand what we are signing than rush into it.
We also didn't pick our siding and shutter colors yet. More to come on that. I'll need some help from the blogger world, I think....
We had made reservations at a nice restaurant to celebrate the signing of our contract, but it didn't happen. When we came home, I took a 3 hour nap and woke up just completely drained. Its been a hell of a week at work, at school and with the house and I was just emotionally spent. We went out for ice cream instead.
