More shutters...and SOD!

The house had been looking a little weird with just half of the front being covered with shutters. Although they had placed the ones on the side the county considered high visability, no one could decide whether the loft area and the 4th bedroom came with some as well. Leave it to me to come to the rescue! From the beginning, I have kept every email the sales rep sent me, including the revised plans that the county forwarded to Ryan Homes with suggested changes. Those plans also showed the extra window in the family room that I almost didn't get since they didn't have it drawn on the plans during the pre-con meeting, as well as all of the shutters. Once I resent the email to the project manager, he quickly added the shutters.

Additionally, sod was planted! I was tired of looking at a jacked up yard and dirt thrown all over the place!


Look at the tiny tree! So cute






Cute little bushes around the Heating/AC unit


I'm glad the water account still belongs to Ryan Homes, they allowed it to run ALL DAY to cover the yard!


With the picture below, you can see where it seems as though our soon to be neighbor has a lot of land on the left side of the foundation. There will be an easement between the homes, so we are trying to determine how much of the land will not belong to either of us.




The PM also requested to move the walk-through up from the 24th to the 22nd to have more time to get issues cleared up (if any) since we are projected to close on the 27th. I still won't be in town to attend, but I will be there in Skype spirit :)

FYI, only three more days left in Korea!

    1. Thank you! I wasn't too worried, if I had to buy the shutters myself they were going up! LOL! I'm so excited the process is almost completed.

  2. Hi Timika, your house looks beautiful! And yes, they did a FABULOUS job with the landscaping--it's so cute!!! I learned a long time ago, that you have to ask for what you want and that you DID! I had to submit several emails with supported documentation to get things moving with our house. If I didn't we would not have gotten this far. So happy that I did.

    CONGRATULATIONS on creating such a beautiful home for your family!!!

    1. LOL, no clue! I want to make sure the house is squared away, so probably not until the end of October or so.
