1 Week Until Closing!

Almost exactly 1 week from this moment we will be at the settlement table... crazy how fast this process has gone especially since the point when lumber was first delivered to our site.   We have our inspection the same morning as our settlement.  Logistics are becoming a fun challenge as we are figuring out ways to have appliances delivered, Verizon Fios installed, moving trucks picked up, storage units cleared out and 2 kids taken care of at the same time.

So many things to buy but it is very cool to basically "start over" with our brand new home.  We have made a few purchases, the highlight being our new dining room table from West Elm:

We wanted a sectional and lucked out that our existing couch from Raymour Flanigan can actually be combined with other components to make a sectional that will fit in our family room.... so that is the route we are going.  Need to pick out an accent chair, curtains and all sorts of other fun stuff as well.

Finally, spoke to our PM today.... everything is done at this point.  Asphalt was poured and they are going to be doing the final cleaning on Monday.

If anyone has input/feedback on lessons learned from the pre-settlement inspection please don't be shy.


  1. Your house is just lovely! We actually did our pre-settlement walkthrough after settlement! We had unusual circumstances. Your house is lovely, by the way.

  2. Any new updates of your house? Love your choices and that table is AMAZING!

  3. Congratulations! How exciting! You have a beautiful home and I love the color of your front door!
