Final Walk Through Complete!

I can't believe we are at this point! The walk through went very well. We had an inspector come through yesterday and note the things that needed to be fixed up. Our PM got it late last night, read it through, and by the time we got there at 9 am this morning, he had all the people lined up to come in and fix the house up before we close Friday! I was AMAZED! No questions asked, just followed what the inspector said (nothing major). We went through the home and blue taped literally everywhere little fixes. The only thing we need to wait on is a front face of a kitchen cabinet that looks bad because of how the wood went. He is ordering one and letting us pick the one we like better. Our PM also set up a final cleaning for the morning of our closing so they will be out pretty much right as we come in! PERFECT!

It is so exciting that we have come this far and we only have 2 days until we get those keys!! We heard from the settlement company and they got all the info from NVR and are going through it ready for Friday at 10. We still don't know an exact amount for closing costs yet, but we will hopefully know by tomorrow so we can get the cashier's check settled.


YAY!!! ALMOST THERE!!!

  2. So excited for you! It's so cool to follow someone to the end. Make sure the bank holiday doesn't effect you. Don't know if you cleared that up yet but I wanted to just give a heads up. Good luck!

    2. Actually, I think the banks are open Friday just not the exchanges so you should be okay. My bad, it's usually I have to work and the bankers are off. Maybe there is a holiday for the stock market after all. Lol. Good luck again! Praying for you!

  3. That is Awesome, Congratulations!

    Our floor plan has a similar cascading stair case and we've been going back and forth as to whether to do the carpet runner. I think seeing pictures of yours has convinced me to NOT do the carpet runner. Do you happen to know what stain you got? There seems to be the most variation with this process. I've seen banisters and stairs that should have been light that turned out dark and vice versa. From the horrible samples we were shown, we selected dark oak. We've seen the dark cherry and that is too dark.

    Again, congrats.

    1. We went back and forth also. In the end we didn't want a worn carpet to be the first thing people see when they come in! Just needs to watch the kids carefully! Our wood is saddle and I don't know if the stain name is the same. It is close, almost exact, to the hardwood color. I am very impressed!
