Big Update and We've Been Framed!

So for a variety of reasons I have not been updating this blog, but that stops now.  So let's get to it!   At the end of June our house finally broke ground!!  And as most people know once Ryan Homes finally gets started things start to go really fast.

It took a couple of weeks for Ryan Homes to fully clear our lot and and start the foundation.  But once that was done they quickly put up the temporary foundation posts.

Then all of a sudden the foundation was in and framing began.

Our construction manager has been great.  He has been great about answering questions even though he is working on five houses at once.  Please see earlier posts regarding the year long delay in the start of this community and why Ryan Homes is working hard to get everyone in their homes by the end of the year.  My husband visits the site every Thursday and our construction manager always spends time with him.  He is organized and patient.  We are feeling very good about things so far.

Right now we are scheduled to have our pre-dry wall meeting on August 10.  As others have advised I will try to get a third party inspector in just to make sure everything is on track.  But so far we are excited, just need to pull my pennies together to pay for this thing.  I may do a post in the next week or so on the latest from NVR mortgage - always more exciting than it should be.  


  1. Yaaay! Glad things are progressing so quickly for you guys after the slow start. Your blog was one of the main inspirations for me to start blogging actually (, as it kept coming up under "Avalon" and MD. And fear of potential similar delays also kept me up at night!

  2. Yay! I've been waiting on your update! Please continue to keep posting your progress. We're in DC so I feel like we're neighbors :-)

  3. Congrats, so glad to see the house coming along. You should have the inspection done right away after your pre drywall meeting because actual drywall goes up quickly after. You want him to see all the inner workings of the house
