We have signed the proverbial dotted line and are now committed with a signed contract! Hurray!!
Simple enough, 5% down plus a portion of the lot premium. First decision – the color and finish of the door handles. Two choices: brushed nickel or Venetian bronze. We went with the brushed nickel.
This very first decision, which we were unprepared to make, was surely the first of probably several hundred that loom ahead for us. Upcoming:
- “low voltage” wiring (cabling: coax, phone, ethernet)
- siding and brick selection
- structural options (includes real structural items like a 2nd floor, a finished basement, but also includes crown molding among other oddities that don’t seem to belong in the “structural” category)
- designer options – cabinets, floors and so many (many, many) others
We went out to celebrate! Happy Hour at Cantina Feliz, not too far our new home to be.
