Yep, NEW New House, not just NEW to me, but really really NEW!!!!
Exciting huh? I have a preliminary meeting with the design center to go over the price of upgrades and to get an accurate idea of the BOTTOM line. We aren't under contract yet, but fingers are crossed.
On July 1st, I get an entire hour with a designer at their design center. They must really like me, since I'm not even under contract. That or the sales gal at the community is tired of seeing me and just wants to put me off on someone else! It's all good.
I've already brought two of my girlfriends over on separate occasions to walk them through the spec house, and have two more that are going with my on Thursday. They don't have an actual model of this unit, but they do have a spec. Wish we were already ready to buy, but oh well. This way I get to pick EVERYTHING myself.
Yep, Beefcake is letting me pick everything out myself. Apparently he likes what I've done with our current home and completely trusts me! (that he could care less, and doesn't want to bother with it!) I only see a win win, really.
Until I meet with the designer, I have no idea what all of the upgrades will be, but I do know a few. I'm compromising I lot, but I think in long run I'll be gaining more.
I do know we are going with Elevation A, because it is included in the base price. I want to save my upgrade money for the REALLY important stuff. Like cabinets and counters. The pretty stuff! lol
When I go back on Thursday I'm going to bring the camera and take a ton of pics. It's not 100% to my tastes, but it'll give you a pretty good idea of what it will look like. Consider this the first of a zillion posts about the NEW HOUSE!
