Today we finalized the paperwork for the house. It still doesn't seem real . . . not until we actually break ground. Then I will realize all of this is really happening.

I told our construction project manager that I am counting on him to keep this process migraine-free for me. We'll see how well he does. 

More news to come, and hopefully some pictures soon as well.

Getting ready for construction

Today Randy and I put the final touches on the design for our new home. We hope to break ground at the beginning of March and take possession the middle to end of May. This is kinda surreal for me. I've never done this before and I have to say that I'm a bit anxious about the whole process. I am in love with the floor plan - an open concept ranch style. If you'd like to see a picture of what we are building go to Ryan Homes website and choose the Pisa design. There is an awesome virtual walk though there that will show you the home. 

So far the process has been ok. We've had to make some compromises on finishes, but these are things we can always add later. Basically,we are getting our dream/forever home which makes me very excited. What's better is that I get to experience this with my best friend - my hubby!

Our new address will be 5209 Miller St., Barberton, OH 44203. It will be super easy to access. Heading South on Rt. 21 go past the I-76 exit and keep heading South until you get to Eastern Rd. At that light, take a left then follow it until you come to Fireland Rd. Take a right on Fireland, then an immediate left at Bishop Oval - this is our subdivision. Our street is the second street to the right and we are the 4th house on the left. Pretty easy, huh?? I love this location as it is super quiet, sits up an a hill so the views are really nice and the best feature of the area . . . there is a winery right across the street from the subdivision. Can you say WALKING DISTANCE? We've met our new neighbors. They are a young couple with two small children and a VERY large dog named Diesel. 

I'm sure there will be some frustrations along the way, and I will vent so accept my apologies now. Overall I am hopeful for a good experience. 

Until next time. . . .
