|Our Savoy…the windows at the bottom of the house, are long and gorgeous!|
Our PM told us that there are only 5 lots left in our community. I think there is a total of 3 Savoys (so far). A Courtland Gate is up now, so when we move in, we'll have neighbors! Matt, our PM said by the end of next week the brick and siding will be done. I know that I have a walk-thru on 8/20 with Guardian. So, I guess we should have our pre-drywall meeting in about 3 weeks. Time is moving!
Now onto something a little annoying. I was asked if we wanted to keep a tree that was on the side of our property and I said yes. Guess what I see today? The tree is gone! Why would they ask and then do the exact opposite? I guess I will send my PM an email and inquire. I am not going to dwell on it, and realize it's gone now. I'm learning to not get so frazzled over issues. It's bad for your health and takes away the joy of all the good things that are happening. But, I must ask, what is it about me and trees? Funny story, my old neighbor in VA hired a contractor to cut down a tree in her yard, the contractor got confused and ended up cutting down a BEAUTIFUL Cherry Blossom tree in my yard. I guess, I'm not meant to have trees for some odd reason!
On another note, we have decided to wait on stainless appliances until we decide on the colors, the backsplash, and counters for our kitchen. I keep telling myself that this house will be a work in progress and everything does not have to be perfect before we move in. I want to take my time in creating a unique, beautiful space for us. I have my idea of what I like from a backsplash. I am sure we'll do quartz counters over granite. Quartz, unlike granite doesn't need to be resealed and has the same durability. I also will do under cabinet lighting. I like glass for a backsplash but know that subway tile is pretty cheap too. So maybe we'll be able to do both. Here are some pictures that I like:
|Glass…I like that it offers some bling. This is something I would do behind the range.|
|Here is glass and smaller subway tile (I think).|
Below are the appliances I'm going to check out to see if I like. I decided on a side-by-side because I had a French Door with the bottom freezer in my old house, and frankly felt the freezer on the bottom was annoying. I do want a counter depth fridge, and this one had that feature. I like the front load machines, they seem to hold a lot of laundry at one time, so here is a Samsung model that received rave reviews. It prices close 3K but that includes the pedestals. If it comes in silver, I will go for that color.
