After some last minute scrambling to get verbal verfication of employment we finally closed on our house! It was getting down to the wire and we were kind of freaking out that we might not close because they decided to wait untill the last possble minute to get this. But that's all in the past now. Closing part went fairly quickly. It took just a little over an hour and we couldn't be happier with the house!

We moved the important stuff like cats, dog, bed, clothes and a few important stuff. We had margaritas and pizza on our amazing front porch! Tomorrow we will move all the rest and the fridge gets delivered too! 

We found out that our Chevy Silverado 2500HD just barely fits in the garage. Haha.

I'll post some more pics and updates later after we move and unpack.


  1. Congratulations!!!

    BTW - If your 3500 HD fits, then our Suburban should fit in ours with no problem. Looks like your HD is a 4x4, which means it sits higher than a Suburban or Silverado regular duty.

  2. OMG!! Congratulations Rachel and Tommy!! What a pleasure to see you build your home and CLOSE on time!!

    BTW--the truck parking is going to be an issue for us too! We have already decided that will not work to fit all of our vehicles (Ford 150, Suburban, BMW X3 and Harley Road King Classic) NOT GONE HAPPEN which is why we are so happy to have a long long drive way! My BMW and his motorcycle can only fit! Wish we could have gotten a three car garage--that would have been sweet.


    1. It would be nice if they would make the garages longer but oh well. A three car garage would be pretty sweet!

  3. Congratulations! I'm glad the truck barely fits instead of barely doesn't fit - that would really stink.

    Your house is great and your front porch is amazing. I'm jealous of that front porch. Enjoy every inch of your beautiful new life!

  4. Congrats! Can't wait to see decorating pictures down the road!

  5. Congrats!!! lol @ least the truck fits right??

  6. Conga rats! I hope the next phase is exciting and fun!

  7. Congrats! I'm glad you were able to fit the truck in the garage!

  8. Congrats on closing! Always good to see that your vehicles actually fit in the garage! :)

  9. Congrats on the house...glad your truck fits in the garage. Our house had the option for a 4ft extension on the garage and I'm glad I purchased it so my F-150 4door can fit inside the garage

  10. Congrats! Your home is beautiful. Sorry to hear that they had you scrambling for last minute stuff at closing. We didn't go through NVR and are grateful. Seems like lots of people have handsome crazy issues. Glad your finally in. ENJOY!!

  11. Having your house close to the trees is very awesome! It helps a lot in eliminating the heat during the summer and creating more shade. I think that the ambiance of that house is a lot better because of the trees that surround it.
