Blogging from my phone, but just a quick update about the pre-settlement walk through. The meeting lasted about 2 hours and we went through the house bottom to top. Our pm is very knowledgeable and very thorough and the meeting went very smoothly. My folks, our realtor, my hubs and myself were all there - it was definitely helpful to have some extra eyes around to point things out we may have missed. But really, there wasn't too much to point out! A few spots already had painters tape on them when we got there from things either the pm or the inspector had noticed. And we didn't notice more than a handful of minor things. I don't know why I was expecting to find more wrong - probably because the interwebs are so full of horror stories, or maybe because I'm so ready to move I wasn't being critical enough, but I suspect its just because they did a kick-ass job building our house and there just wasn't much to find. It's really spectacular.
So anyway, after the meeting we went shopping for a new fridge - home depot had a great deal on it - $100 off and free delivery & hook up. Up next is blinds, a ceiling fan, new couch & TV - hoping we might be able to do some wheeling and dealing at Morris if we buy both of them there. Then will be a new kitchen table for the morning room and a king size bed for the master. Only a few more days until we are in!!! Can't believe it!
