Bold and Beautiful!!

Our brick front was scheduled to be installed last week...we drove out to the house everyday last week to see it all dreseed up in brick, but in vain....we were growing impatient everyday...we lost all hopes of seeing our beauty dressed up last week...we casually drove out on Friday evening and as we approached the house...lo and behold!! there stood our beauty all dressed up in dark brown..looking bold and beautiful and majestic!! It was love at first sight and we were instantly relieved of our "did we made the right brick choice??" anxiety...like we mentioned in our earlier posts, we did not have the luxury of seeing this brick on any other house before we made the choice...

the brick stairs leading to the main door were done on Friday as well....the kitchen cabinetry, stair railings, doors and the rest of the goodies have arrived...to our surprise, when we visited this evening (saturday), the siding has been completed as well...most of the exterior has been completed except for the trim and shutters...the electric dry run was done last Thursday...overall a good week with a very happy ending...

O! by the way, we received a letter from Ryan Homes with our closing date...July 27th is the day!! and the pre-settlement date is July 25th...a week earlier than we expected... will post pics tomorrow!!

  1. Nice, glad to hear about the progress. Ready to see some pics though! :-)

    Eh, I also noticed that we both used "lo and behold" in our posts tonight. Definitely more dramatic to say it that way!

  5. We are building in williamsburg. Still going through the paperwork process. I am assuming we are talking to the same people you already spoke with, to get your house started. My question to you is, how were they? Is everything going as planned? Thanks
