So the fun, exciting, crazy, nerve racking, indecisiveness has begun! Last night we met with our sales rep to pick out our options! I have to be honest, I was a little disappointed in the selections (carpet) available and where the selections were located.(basement of the model) I guess one of the things that the other builder did offer was an actual design center with actual full size offerings of their selections which was really helpful in making our choices. They had full kitchen models with different granite, cabinets and flooring, along with multiple sink options, a full ceramic bath, fireplaces and multiple mantel choices, washers and dryers, faucets, knobs, you name it, if they sold it there was an actual example. I really liked the kitchen, because we were able to pull out the drawers, and compare this granite with that cabinet against this floor etc, not to mention the most important thing...natural light! I am sure that if we never saw the design center the "basement" would have been just fine. But it did feel like going from driving a BMW to a Yugo. :) The good thing for us is that we did have that experience to lean on when making our new selections!
Ok, now that I have gotten that off my chest, let me tell you a little bit about the Old.
We really like our old selections and hoped that Ryan offered similar choices, I guess that's why I named this blog the way I did!
