In the beginning...

Recently we found out that we would be moving to the Washington, DC metro area, and decided to purchase a home. After researching home listings old and new, we became frustrated when the homes did not come with the amenities that we desired. After careful consideration, we decided it would be best to build a home where we could customize it to our liking.

We researched various builders throughout the area, and decided on Ryan Homes. The builder offered great incentives and they have an impeccable reputation; recently they were named Energy Star partner of the year. I inquired about a home in the Piney Grove community, and the builder immediately put us in touch with our sales consultant Nikki. After speaking with Nikki on the home, we picked out the model of the home we wanted to build, and the options we wanted to include. Within a week, the purchase agreement and other legal documents were signed. We are currently in the loan process, beginning to work with the loan officer to obtain a mortgage through NVR.

We have our lot picked out, flooring, cabinets and tile chosen; the carpet has yet to be decided on. I will use this site to share with family and friends the progess on having our home built.

And the journey begins...

Our lot!
