Matt and I ran over to the house on Sunday morning but I think we went too early. No one was working so we were unable to get in. The biggest thing I noticed as soon as we drove up was the mailbox!!!! YAY!!! Needless to say I was pretty darn excited about that. We had grass in the front yard and the door had been painted. Unfortunately the door was black. I emailed the builder’s agent and was told there was a “paperwork” issue. She said my paint color had been approved and the door would be repainted to the correct color.
As we walked around we noticed there were a lot of spots that had been filled/repaired on the front porch. It makes me happy to see they are noticing some of the same small details and correcting them before we even notice. I did notice one of the railings on the screen porch is lower on one side than the other. I’m sure the builder will see and correct this before I mention it but at this point it looks like we are in the home stretch.
I was also told the new vanity is in! The builder’s agent said she walked over on Saturday and it looked really good. I’m really excited to see it. I plan to go over at lunch one day this week. I’m currently working from home due to icy roads so I don’t think it will happen today.
Speaking of the ensuite bathroom, aside from finding a mirror, which I can’t do until I see the vanity, I have everything ready for that bathroom. I found a shower curtain on clearance at Kirklands for $8.00. They also had a picture that coordinated and after some debate I went back and bought it. I basically got the bathroom done for under $35.00. I liked the shower curtain so much I decided to put it up now while we show this house. I think it really looks great! My vision for that room is coming together nicely. 🙂
In other news, we are planning to list our current house either tomorrow or Friday but we already have a showing for tomorrow. We decided to do a “coming soon” listing and were able to schedule an early viewing. 🙂
