Final Walk-Through

Friday was the the second biggest day I have waited for. The final walk through went pretty well. There was still a lot of activity going on at the house. Cleaners, painters, trim guys...you name it, they were there. The walk thru pre-settlement demonstration only lasted about an hour and a half. There really wasn't anything major to gripe about. Overall, Ryan Homes did a great job and our PM's Brett and Sam came thru for us. Besides having about 50 flies in the house from the door being open, I really enjoyed the house in its 99.9% completed form. Jen and I simply did not want to leave because it almost felt like closing time. I even decided to go ahead and use the bathroom for the first time. :-)

Besides some minor scratches and dings that I know will be fixed at 30 day inspection, the one thing that still needed to be fixed was the fireplace that had some air in the gas line, which prevented it from lighting. . I didn't get a chance to see it lit but I will be checking it again Monday or Tuesday before I close. The plumber is supposed to fix it by time we close, so no worries.  We ran the dishwasher, which was pretty quiet. (wonder if it will still be quiet with dishes in it), turned on the oven and stove and used the microwave. Everything worked fine. The one thing I did not like however was the towel rack in the Master Bath. I actually wish it were on the wall under neath the window vs. above the toilet. We like to be able to grab the towel off the rack from inside the shower and not have to completely get out and walk over to toilet. That will mostly get changed at the 30 day inspection. We;ll see how it goes. Sometimes change is good. Other than that, every was great. I can't wait to close and get the keys to our new home. 2 more days!! :)

Not a lot of pics, but i'll try to post more later.

  2. Wow! Everything is looking great - you are almost there! I agree with you about the towel bar placements - they never seem to be in a practical place! We will be moving ours as well.
