Wow, today was one of the last major milestones on my house. A lot has changed since I wrote my initial ‘I have a house’ post and took pictures of the dirt.
First, I changed the community that I bought it. What!?! One of the perks of working for a home builder is that changing from one community to the other is a little easier than people would expect. Our company has two communities with the same plans in two different areas where I live. I like the one I originally picked out, but the other community is literally ‘on the corner’ of block I live at now. So, after going up to see what my house was going to look like at the close community, I decided to switch to this community. My house hasn’t even really started construction, and the ones close to me were started to close the first units. I’m an impatient person, so I decided to switch.
Second, I *almost* bought the house that I had pictured previously, but a misunderstanding about the price I offered caused the unit to be sold to someone else. Fortunately, the company I worked for was able to quickly rectify my upset state.
Finally, after a lot of grief given and recieved, I was able to buy a similar unit with a nice incentive. This one didn’t have all the options selected, so one nice thing is that I was able to pick the options I wanted. Fortunately, the design center lady was nice and patient, and I was able to get a very nice color scheme done for my townhouse.
Picture will be posted soon!
