Finally they are starting to build our house!!!
Our sales person told us that the longest and most annoying part of the process would be from the time we signed the documents to buy until the house started to get built. She's right. Dealing with all the paperwork with the mortgage company and then making sure we stay on top of the sales office to be sure they were filing for a building permit and getting things moving has been annoying and semi-stressful. Looking back at our paperwork it's only been 45 days!! It seems like we've been waiting forever for them to start!
Now comes the fast part. We've been able to see how fast these builders put up houses by watching our neighbor's house. They are building a 2 story house (which to us means "family", we just hope they're a nice one!) and 3 weeks ago they had a concrete slab. Now they have a 2 story frame with all the framing for the walls done! Insane!! It even has a roof!
I cannot wait to see the progress and I'll be posting lots of pictures. Neither one of the girls will remember seeing their house they're going to grow up in get built so I want to be sure to take a lot of pictures for them to look back on.
When we went out Monday this is what we saw:
They were starting to dig for the plumbing when we left! Later this week they'll poor the slab and by early January the block will up for the exterior walls!!
They claim our house will be completed by the end of February and closing will be 2 days before my 30th birthday in March!
