Preconstruction Meeting

We had our preconstruction meeting today and wow was I not expecting what my PM told me. Now don't get me wrong, I want the house like yesterday but to hear him actually give us a date that is sooner than we thought took my breath away. According to our PM the expected closing date provided there is no weather related issues will be 06/24/2011. OMG!!! I was hyperventilating a little when he told me this. We were expecting closing to be around the end of July not the end of June. According to my PM if there is no major issues it will take him 70 days to build our home. 70 days…that’s it? I asked my PM does those 70 days include love and tenderness??? LOL…we had to rush from there to another appointment but ended up stopping by the lot because the PM told us he had staked out the house. I had been a little concerned our house was going to be too big for the size of the lot for a nice yard space. After walking the lot I am satisfied we will have enough of a yard to enjoy nice backyard gatherings. While we were out on the lot our PM happened to drive through and he stopped to walk the lot with me while answering any questions I had.

Wow! I am really starting to get excited now…like this is really happening. I am so thankful for this blessing!!! I have prayed and prayed asking God to make me a homeowner by the time I turn 30. I was so disappointed when my birthday came and it seemed I wasn't even on track for becoming a homeowner. Now when I hear the saying: “he may not come when you want him to but he’s always right on time” I really have to laugh because I didn’t specifically say on my 30th birthday. I asked for 30 and I will still be 30 until September…now isn’t that something. LOL!


  1. Congrats! We have the same estimated closing date! :) What house are you building? Your lot is nice and flat...looks like you will have a nice yard! We are going to have a tiny yard because out house is so big for our tiny lot! Lol. Oh well! I am turning 31 this year too...hehe! Glad your getting your wish of becomimng a Home owner especially on a brand new house!

  2. Thank you. We are building the Rome which is about 3200 square feet with the morning room. I wanted a bigger yard space but my husband rejected that plan stating he's going to be the one to cut the grass so he has more say so on that area. Lol. Well this is my early and late bday gift and I'm so thankful for this blessing!

  3. OMGosh!! This is encouraging!! Since we live in the same "area" to know it can be done that fast!! We are setting up our pre-construction meeting this week!

    God is good!! I love that he did this!! =) I'm so excited for you!

  4. Thank you Noey....he truly is!
