Duke Power's CEO will hand deliver a thank you gift to our new home!

The mortgage is officially approved. Now, I need them to hurry and build the house before Tom decides he wants more lights! He has NOW decided that he also wants above-cabinet lights in the kitchen (this is in addition to the under-cabinet lights and all the recessed lights!). It may be possible to see our house from Pluto thanks to all the lights!

No more sold

Shannon was away for the weekend, but of course I still had to stop by and see if any more homes in our unit had been sold.

None. Darn.

But, I did see that a few more were sold in other units.... promising.... Plus, maybe the housing market won't be at a 1o year low next month...

Now we wait

It seemed so intense making the decision to buy and build this house, now we have to wait for it to be built - which is tough. We are ready to start packing now...

If you know anyone looking for a great townhome, tell them about Park South Station! (So long as they're cool.)

Speakers, security and MORE RECESSED LIGHTS!

We met with the technology installer today and picked out really cool stuff. They are going to pre-wire for both TVs we already have, and wire everything into a media closet on the first floor - no wires anywhere!

Plus, we'll have speakers on the patio, in the kitchen and dining room and in the master suite. (Also in the great room for surround sound.) It will be a party house for sure.

Security is all set up too - neat advances since the last time I bought one. They have "pet motions" for cats and dogs that don't trip as long as the animal weighs less than 100 lbs. Saves you paying to wire every door and window.

Plus, we settled on adding 21 recessed lights. Ha.

Can't wait

We're meeting with the Tech guy on Saturday morning to pick our speakers and home theater stuff - I can't wait!

Mortgage Application

This part sucks, so much paperwork. I vow to make it better for everyone. When banks compete....

Recessed Lights

I love recessed lighting. Shannon thinks I will leave them all on. (Very possible...)  We walked through the model today and agreed where they'll go. Let there be light.

We're building a house in Charlotte!!

After 6 months of trying to figure out where we're going to live, we took the plunge and put in a contract today on a new townhouse at Park South Station in Charlotte, NC. We're really excited!

This is the model of the home we'll build. It's called the Fenmore. Ours will look a little different, and the brick will change, but this gives you the idea.
