Almost there...

We've got Counter-tops and Appliances!


On our visit today we found that Ryan Homes had installed our granite counter-tops (santa cecilia) and our appliances.  Our impromptu visit consisted of a lot of discussion with Andrew, our PM, about the possibility of having shelving installed in the laundry room, which he agreed to do.  THANKS ANDREW.  They've also begun to lay carpet as of this post, and are stair railing is also stained now.  Didn't get any photos of this, but it looks great.  I'll try to get photos of it in the next post.  For the most part, trim is done and there is only one more coat of paint to go.  Because of time constraints, I was only able to get a shot of the kitchen today (see below).

The one issue we found out is that the counter-top installers cracked the piece of granite that is supposed to connect the breakfast bar to the counter-top... basically a granite back-splash that goes behind the sink.  Was told they had to order a new piece and it would be installed soon.

We're a week and a half from closing!

Here's what's left:

  • Finish trim
  • One coat of paint
  • Finish carpet
  • Faucets
  • Cabinet knobs

Here's the ONE picture from today:

  2. Did you opt not to get the updated version of the gourmet Island for Milan 6 version?

    1. We tried... we wanted the rectangular one but we were told since that was an update on the next version of the Milan they couldn't integrate it into our version. We were told that a lot actually because there was a lot of things that came out on the next version that I liked better - and that version came out right after we signed the paperwork to build. Ugh.

    1. Yes that was our favorite granite, and, fortunately for us, one of the cheapest options too!

  5. Kitchen looks great! We have our Rite Rug appointment tonight and I so desperately want to bite the bullet and pay to remove the vinyl that comes standard! I can't stand it but would probably save money if we did it later.
