Detailed Selections - Pre Construction

We had our pre-construction meeting yesterday. We think we're going to love our PM! We asked if he could "accidentally" paint our front door black instead of the red and he told us he thinks he can make it happen! Woohoo!
We are on schedule to close around the last week of November/first week of December. Seems like forever from now, but I know it'll fly by

Here's a list of our selections:
*Venice Elevation B with partial brick
*walk out basement with glass slider
*morning room with the extra windows, gormet island
*stone FP with blower (we wanted brick but it wasn't an option!)
*service door in garage
*unfinished basement with 3 piece rough in
*owners bathroom w/soaking tub (alternate layout)
*extra outlet & cable wiring in bathroom (my hub is very excited about taking a bath while watching a movie!)
*extra outlet in kitchen island (thanks to the bloggers for this suggestion!)
*laundry room tub
*recessed lights in kitchen, family room, over FP, and master bedroom
*ceiling fans in each bedroom and morning room
*speaker wiring in kitchen and front room (we'll use it as an office)
*we got an upgraded panel of some sort that my hub wanted for wires
*laminate everywhere downstairs except for family room
*we upgraded the carpet padding and carpet upstairs and in family room (it's a light color)

Our color selections:
Siding: Dover White with black trim
Granite counters: Golden Garnet
Kitchen cabinets: Sq. Maple Cognac
Master bath: Mushroom  tiles (i think) with Maple Spice cabinets - we kept the white top
Spare: white cabinets, white top
Brick: Millwood
Stone FP: Old country smokey mountain

Our choices

Here's a bunch of pictures from my phone. Hopefully you get a good idea of all the selections we picked.

 Brick Color is Millbrook I think

 Fireplace Stone

 My hub the day we signed our contract agreement

 Laminate floor color with kitchen cabinet and granite

 Our lot is 165

Master bath tile

 Master bath tiles with cabinet color

 This was taken from my iphone. I had to search everywhere for a sample of a venice with a partial stone. We actually got brick, but i couldn't find a sample. This is pretty close to our siding/trim...just picture the brick instead of stone. And our plan is reversed...so garage will be on the other side. Ryan didn't have a real picture of these options and the computer generated one they gave us just looked silly. I'm glad I found this online!

Our siding choices...we are hoping to convince them to paint the door black instead of red...we'll see!

Spare bathroom colors

Pre Construction Meeting

I'm so excited to join the "e-neighborhood!" I have really loved reading all of your blogs for the past few weeks. This is my first attempt at a blog, so hopefully this will be just as fun to write as everyone else's have been to read! Tips on blogging are appreciated!
We have a pre-construction meeting on Monday. I can barely stand the excitement!!
I need to post pictures of our selections. Hopefully I'll get to that this weekend

It's official!

On August 3rd we got good news! We are officially pre-approved by NVR mortgage!

My husband and I each bought a house before we got married. We have rented his for a few years, but just recently started renting mine out. We were so worried we wouldn't be approved!

Now the fun begins...
