I can't believe how long it has been since my last post.
Our chunky king size bed looks pretty small in our new bedroom
We received our keys on Friday December 3rd at about 6pm and we started moving in the next day.
We've had a few ups and downs since then and at times it feels like we're in a never ending nightmare. I'll write up posts about that shortly, but I thought I'd answer a couple of questions that people left in the comments section.
Firstly, Robert - our contract length was 383 days and we received the keys after 191 days. Way back at site start time we thought we'd be in the house around February of this year so it actually went a lot quicker than we anticipated. That being said - the house was essentially finished in late October, there were only minor things that needed to be completed and there were weeks where no one was on site.
Secondly, DMFAN - we love the Denver, there's plenty of space and it works really well for us. Check over your plans carefully as there are a lot of wall cut outs and you may not want them all. Also, if you're going with the 43, the back of the workshop/garage is open. You have to pay extra to either have it bricked or an extra garage door put in.
In terms of lay out and selections there is nothing that we would change. I'll add a qualifier here - your level of happiness with the finished product will come down to the site supervisor you get. While overall we're happy with our house, the lack of attention to detail and poor finishing really drops the quality from a great house down to a good house, which is incredibly disappointing and frustrating, particularly given the amount of money paid.
I'll be back over the weekend to fill you in on our ongoing problems.
