Wait, are those men's boots???

Hi All! We had our official walk through on Thursday. I woke up that morning excited to see the finished product! I have been very busy at school, and now that we have fallen back it gets dark so early that I have not been able to get by the house. We stopped for a  pumpkin muffin (special treat :) ) and a hot cut of coffee and headed to the house. To my surprise, the house was not done! There was a work van sitting outside the house an painters inside when we got there. I thought we had the wrong day! Our PM assured us that the work was 99% done so we continued with the final walk through. The one big this that was missing was our refrigerator. Our PM's assistant forgot to order it and our PM didn't notice it until the night before. He assured us that it would be delivered on Monday, 2 days before closing.

The walk through was VERY informative. There are lots of little features that make the house more efficient and fun to live in. I am VERY happy that we chose Ryan Homes. We close in less than 4 days.... Wow, time has flown by! Enjoy the pics below. :)

Not what I expected to see! :) Belonged to the PM

Living Room

Still working on small touch-up jobs but that's ok

 Missing fridge space. Hard to get a good kitchen pic because people were still working.

Self explanatory :)

Tried to get a shot of the entire lot

Looking into back yard. Sod an irrigation front and back! The hubby is happy about that :)

I love this pic! Front porch/stoop :) I love how the brick turned out!

The house is a mess...

If you have been wondering why I haven't posted anything in a while its because:

1. Not much has changed in the house. Kitchen still not done, not much change to exterior
2. The house looks a mess! I do not want others to see the house in this condition! I know its not actually ours yet but a girl still takes pride in how her home looks. :)
3. I haven't been able to get many good pictures. Its getting pretty cold here so with no heat in the house visits are a bit rushed.

I have come to grips with the fact that the house will look a mess for another week so I am posting pics anyway. Its a bit frustrating because it seems like they start a lots of things but complete nothing. They have a LOT of work to do before the final walkthrough next week. Btw, notice anything different on the page? We have a countdown!!! It only took me a couple hours to figure out how to add it. :)

Lets just get this over with, the kitchen looks terrible.

They started the repair on that drywall mishap in the kitchen


They have started the second round of drywall so time to touch-up imperfections
Oh and carpets done!!! 

Tried to get a pic of the counter for you Angie. Its not the best but I will try again next time


Hallway bathroom, still not done
Exterior is pretty much unchanged, still no driveway, yard not graded, light fixture missing, stoop not done.
They did pour the walkway although it is difficult to see in this picture
