Quick Updates and a Date!

We finally selected all of our customs, options and upgrades for our home.  We started our process in September; however, we are just coming to the point of finalizing our selections at the Design Studio, the Toll Brothers custom department and Audio Buys.  We were told we could not have a pre-start meeting until all of these items were satistfied with our sales office along with the plans and building permits.  The plans/permits were submitted on December 2, 2015.  We were told this is a new model for our community and the county is slow to approve the model.  The first Langley II took four months.  The second Langley II took approximately two months.  We are hopeful that we would have received our permit in January because of the prior Langley approvals in our community.  However, we were faced with the holidays and the BLIZZARD which slowed the process down too.  This means we are still waiting for our permits.

In the meantime, we have a firmed pre construction date!!  🎉🎉🎉
Initially, we were scheduled for February 15 at 10:30 am. We were hit with more snow and our appointment was canceled due to inclement weather. So disappointing. We have been pushed back, but we do have a new date!!

February 29, 2016    The day after our 16th Anniversary 💑

After building both of our Ryan Homes (a townhouse and single family home) along with a purchasing a condo last year and guttering out the entire unit, we feel quite confident that there are a lot of interior design choices we can do at a later time to make the home our home because most builders have limited choices and are quite expensive.  We decided to go with 50 percent standard options and 50 percent upgrades.  For instance, we opted out of letting Toll Brothers finish our basement and used that incentive towards purchase of our home.  It's going to feel really weird not having the basement done, but I would not have it any other way.  I have great design ideas for the basement and too excited about it. I will post our selections soon. I need to remember how to set up those sub headings. Lol
