Our neighbors house (also a Ryans Home) is moving quickly, they have a front door now! We also met them for the first time earlier this week (they don't seem to go out to their lot that often). They seem to be a nice couple so far, the husband had a inspector buddy of his out and he said that the construction was very good quality. That's great to hear!
I've been mulling over the idea of whether I should have a third-party inspector come out before the final walk through, I've heard some people in blogs do it and than it turns out everything is great. Any thoughts?
We did have one disappointment recently, when we originally chose this neighborhood we were told that all of the houses were going to be dimensional shingles and we love the look of them. However, we were told (Ryan Homes word) that the developer decided to change the image of the neighborhood a little and are not going with them anymore. It's weird because all of the houses in stage one (a different builder) all have them and now the back, stage 2, will have panel shingles. It's not devastating as we weren't paying for it (it was going to be a standard), but just a small disappointment. Overall though, Ryan Homes has been great with everything we've dealt with them and our PM has also been very open to communication and the couple of times I've emailed him he has replied extremely quickly.
