We are blogging about this journey to help us document and share our journey. This is a very exciting time and unfortunately sometimes even stressful. The process started off very rocky with a less than communicative SR, but things seem to be rolling along now. I will say throughout this process it is very important to educate yourself so you can be your best advocate.
We purchased a home in Bealeton, VA called Mintbrook. We are looking forward to the future development and are hopeful because we bought in early (Phase 1,) that this will be a great investment for us. There are some pros and cons but over the long haul we are hopeful this house we build will soon be a building we love to call HOME!
Here are a few pictures of the Elevation we chose (Elevation C.) We will have a full front porch but we will not have brick. Brick and stone are not an option in the Mintbrook community. You must pick something out of the scenic/traditional collection. Abram and I are still undecided on the color siding we want but will update as soon as we know.
I will try and continue to update this as much as possible. The first few months are slow as the builder pulls the permits. During this time we will have our meeting with the Flooring Center and the Wiring Center to select any additional options we would like.
We want to thank everyone who has been on the journey with us from DAY 1, we would not have made it this far without God and our family and friends. Here is to new beginnings in 2015!
The permanent temptation of life is to confuse dreams with reality. The permanent defeat of life comes when dreams are surrendered to reality. - James Michener
