Other items

Saturday, February 9th, 2008

Just reading some  older notes and realized I didn’t post some notes I’d wanted to, so here we are.

The order things worked for us:

First, we selected the model of house we wanted.

Then, we made the gallery selections.

At this point, 2 more things had to happen for further progress to occur.

1. Receive the mortgage commitment.

2. Pay 1/2 (!!!!) of the gallery options.

Once we had those 2 items, the builder created the blueprints. After they created the blueprints, they applied for the permits to start building with the township. Once the permits were approved by the township, a few more days passed, and they released the forms to the field, which meant  that  our Building Supervisor got the blueprints and they could actually start building.

The above process took much too much time, IMHO.

Take your digital camera when you go to select all your options. Here’s why:

Later on when you are shopping for items for the new house, you can see examples of the exact color combo’s you need to match up.

Did we do that? No. Dang. We were able to find some of the color examples of the different options we chose (And those are in the photo gallery) but not all as of yet.

The Tips category will list all of the random thoughts we’ve had that we wish we’d known prior to building our first house.

Pretty simple, eh? :-)
