We met with the flooring company today (which we thought would be so easy) We are STILL undecided on which direction to go. Maybe it's because they put you in this small room with so many options and you feel overwhelmed in having to make a decision that very moment. We asked to meet back with them so we could have a few days to think about what we would want. There are plenty of upgrades but with those upgrades comes a price $$$!!! We wanted to do our own research to make sure we are getting the best bang for our buck. I'm pretty sure we are going to upgrade the carpet to a 10 year warranty, that has more color options as well. We also heard it's best to upgrade the padding. So we are going to choose the middle upgrade (8 lbs) As far as tile, wood, or a laminate floor, NO CLUE!!!! I think we may stick with what comes with the house and tackle that project on our own when the time comes.

Finding a Development!!!

After many days of driving through different areas and doing as much research as possible, we finally came to a decision on where to build at. It is a smaller development that will only have about 200 houses in it. The price was a little higher then the others in the area but we did not like the fact of living in a develeopment with 2,000 homes in it and different builders. It's more of a quiet area and that was a big plus.

The First Steps

After much reading and research on the internet we decided to blog our purchase of our Ryan Home. Sure there are plenty of bad posts out there so we decided to take the steps of letting people know exactly how our process is from start to finish. There will be posts about every little step that we take. We hope you enjoy our blog and hope it helps you with some of your decisions you might face in the future.
