Ground breaking date

Hello everyone I know its been a while since I have posted anything.  To start we have been very busy that last few weeks packing up our household.  This past weekend we moved out of our home and into temporary housing.  We will miss our old home especially all the landscaping, our garden, and our fantastic kitchen.  We are looking forward to breaking ground on our new home.  I did hear from the sales rep yesterday and she says that were scheduled for ground breaking on June 13. 

We are going to be cutting it close because the baby is due the first week in October.  Somehow we will manage....On a diffrent note we were at the doctors yesterday and I'm happy to report all appears well with the baby and my wife.

Final Change Orders Submitted

We had our final meeting with our sales rep today to finalize the change order to switch from a Ravenna to a Jefferson. Our non standards were also priced in along with some last minute option changes. We also mapped out our extra outlets, light rough ins.

A partial list of choices for our Jefferson

Jefferson Elevation B with Stone Mountain Clay siding
Front entry garage with 4ft extension

Interior options:

Family Room:
Side mounted fire place with Uba Tuba granite surround.

Kitchen

Upgraded kitchen with gourmet island and morning room
Wall mounted double ovens
gas cook top / no microwave since Ryan won't mount it above the gas cook top (they claim building code change...were having an outlet installed above the cook top so we can hang the same microwave that were going to purchase on our own above the cook top ourselves. )

Maple espresso Timberlake cabinets
Non-standard second water line next to refrigerator for my espresso machine

Finished basement with walkout and extra outlets for wall mounted TV

Upgraded owners bath with double bowl vanity with Buckwheat granite.
