The next item on my to-do list is to make a list of some things I want to clarify/address at our pre-construction meeting.  Hopefully, I will be updating you with that list and a start date soon!


  1. Looking and sounding good! Im starting to regret not getting the garage drain. RavennaRant had a few good ideas for additional switches you might want to think about like an inside garage light switch and a master closet light switch in the master bath after move in.

  2. I love your floor plan. They don't offer this model in our area. Can't wait to watch your progress!

  3. Love all of your selections! I believe we chose some of the same flooring options. Can't wait for you to break ground!

  4. Steve has a great point about the inside garage light switch. I wish I had one. It's an easy fix, but not one I will mess with anytime soon.
