So last night we sat down with our Ryan Homes rep and our Realtor and went over our contract and deposited our earnest money, we have officially hired Ryan Homes to build our house!! We are building the Rome Elevation C (although we are waiting to see the prices for elevation E which is set to be announced, it includes a front porch).
We made all of our color selections, although Ryan Homes does give you two weeks to where you can make any kind of changes, everything from a different home style to changes like siding colors and what not. My wife is more of the design person then I am so she may remember all of the choices, as I do not.
I do know we got gray siding and black shudders with the dark red door (I forget the name of the color, something with wine in it). We also got the cape cod style brick for the bottom of the house. Inside we chose our granite counter top color, but we are going to further explore our options on that by seeing more models. We got an in between color for the cabinets, like a medium dark wood (should have taken pictures huh?).
I'll break down and provide a list of all of the options we chose sometime, the big ones though being we got the morning room (actually was an incentive for using NVR), updated the kitchen with the huge island and got free granite counter tops! Added a fireplace, updated the master bath to include the partial glad stand up shower and soaking tub. I'll post a full list later.
Later today I'm going out to the lot and taking pictures before they clear it, try and get a picture series going from start to finish of the house build.
