Final Countdown Is On!

We will be closing next week! I can't believe it's almost here. Although I've been MIA and I haven't posted in a while I've been taking pictures each week and will be going back and updating so you can see the progress as it happened.

We have our pre-settlement walk-through on Monday and then our closing is scheduled for Wednesday morning. There were still a number of items that needed to be fixed as of yesterday when we were at the house, so a little worried things will not be finished when we close. I know they say things can be fixed at your 30 day, but I don't want to move everything in and then have to move things around / out when they come back to fix. So we will see.

I'll be posting more after we close, but below are the latest photos from the house as of Friday. They were just working on putting the landscaping in and were getting ready to put the sod down.

Weeks 5 & 6 Update - Ryan Homes Springmanor

So I'm a little behind on updates as we have been super focused on getting the house ready to put on the market, which hopefully will be next week (fingers crossed).  Below are photos from the last two weeks!  Quite a bit has changed since my last update; it's starting to seem more real! We now have all the framing done, the roof is shingled and the windows are in.

Walls going up.

Easter Decor Ideas

Finally the first day of Spring! There is so much adorable Spring and Easter decor out there right now and I want it all, but we are in the midst of getting the house ready to sell. So for now, it's all about packing things up and making things neutral. Cue wha wha sound. So until we move I just have to stick to daydreaming!

However, I did have to make one little exception...the plaid napkins (number 15) below! Shh. Don't tell my husband. I'm supposed to be cleaning out and getting rid of things, but I have a slight obsession with cloth napkins and knew I had to have them the moment I saw them!  They don't take up much space though, right!?

Below are some of my favorites.  You can find even more decor and DIY ideas on my Easter Pinterest board (link in sidebar).

Weeks 3 & 4 Update

We've had crazy weather the past two weeks, mid 60s, snow and torrential rain, so there hasn't been a ton of progress on the house.  Below are some photos of the latest.

Week 3 they put the beams and supports in the basement and all of the pipes for plumbing (or so it appeared to my untrained eye). Our wood package also arrived.

Weeks 1 & 2 Update

Construction started the day following our pre-construction meeting.

Below are some photo updates. We're so lucky that one of Ryan's good friends is one of our neighbors. He stops by our lot several times a week and sends us updates. We haven't been able to get out there as much as we'd like to with our new house being about 35 minutes from our current house and us trying to get work finished on our current house.

Digging the foundation.
