Just wanted to check in and say we finally got our Comcast services and up and running. I'm typing this from my new home office, but we still have an incredible amount of things to unpack. Jennifer and myself will be posting pics as soon as we get the boxes cleaned up and things put away. It's been an exhausting last week, but entirely worth it. The new house is amazing, and we absolutely love it. My parents are flying in from Louisiana for Christmas, and we are really excited to show off our new house! I was able to get our media closet all wired up tonight and am delighted that everything worked out exactly as planned. No visible wires, cables boxes, etc...all neatly tucked away in the mud room closet. Awesome.

We Closed

We closed on our house at 9am this morning! The process was quick and painless only lasting about 35 minutes or so. After closing we stopped by our house and waited for Lowe's to show up with our refrigerator and washer/dryer. They had everything setup and installed shortly after lunch without a scratch on anything. Only took them about 40 minutes to get everything in place and they were very careful; so they earned a nice tip! Movers are meeting me at our storage units at 0800 to load up and get everything down to the new house. It's a little over an hour south of the storage units, so hopefully they make quick work of everything since they are charging an hourly rate. That's all I've got for now, but we will post a ton of pictures soon (hopefully from our new house) provided Comcast doesn't hold us back. Happy Building all!

Jinxed It!

Our closing was pushed back two days to Friday Decmeber, 14. They tried to push it back to Monday December 17, but I expressed how undesirable that was for us. After a call to our SR to let him know this was not going to work for us, NVR moved it up to the 14th. We have movers, appliances, cable, etc. already scheduled for the 14th and 15th, and we weren't willing to call and move all of that because NVR is so very indecisive. No real reason for delaying the closing other than the underwriter needed more time with the file. I will say NVR hasn't been overly terrible to deal with, nor have they been overly pleasant! We just want to be in our new house and unpacked before Christmas.

Around this time next week, we will be in the middle of closing on our house! I think 12/12/12 is a great day to close, should be easily remembered. We have Lowe's set to deliver our appliances on Friday and the movers slated for Saturday morning. The house was cleaned yesterday and the place looks great. Only a couple very minor things I see that need attention, but that's to be expected. Anyhow, I hope everyone is enjoying their build and having a fun holiday season thus far!

In the mean time, enjoy a picture of our (what we think is an) awesome shower! LOL

We found out about the dreaded white soap dish too late in the game to do much about it. It doesn't bother us too much!
