Welcome to Our Home Building Journey!
Thank you for visiting our blog! We have spent several weeks exploring the blogs of our fellow Ryan Homes families who built beautiful houses. So, we decided to begin our own blog, with the hope that our experience will be helpful for future families that are building. We are also hoping that others will also share advice that will help us along this journey. We have already had several questions in the first week since we signed our revised contract! Luckily we have an awesome realtor that has been extremely generous with her time and input.
We selected the Lincolnshire Floor Plan. If the blogs are any indicator, we are one of 3 families in this country that selected this plan. LOL.... Maybe the other "Lincoln'ers" are just hiding out. This picture is NOT our house - but it is a Lincolnshire with with the full front porch elevation we selected.
This is a first floor master plan. We concluded that the layout was very unique and something fun for us to try for the next (hopefully) 10 years or so. We considered the Dorsey Hall and Jefferson Square plans for a LONG time, but the Lincolnshire had the BEST basement layout for our needs and had interesting nooks and build options that we thought would give us a type of creatively styled home we had never lived in before. Plus, the morning room is the largest of the plans and the ceilings are 10 feet tall, which we loved! I will post pictures from the model home soon.
As we are beginning the selections process, we realize there are some trade-offs for the aforementioned benefits. Nevertheless, as long as they don't compromise the "feel" of the living areas of the home where we will spend most of our time, I'm ok with them!
So, enjoy our journey with us! We are truly excited and blessed to be able to share this experience with you all. This is our first time blogging and it will be a work in progress.
We were so excited to see the SOLD sign on our lot the week after signing - Let the games begin!
