New House Update



This is the house from the back. The french doors lead into the great room and our master bedroom is to the left (two windows). The concrete shell for the pool and hot tub have been poured and the support wallin the back has been built as well. This is a view from the kitchen with my dd, Kristen out on the to-be lanai. The last view is of the lanai and the back of our house. The window seat in the kitchen is framed, all electric, video and cable are in and we have to make our appointment for the preframe. The neighbors were friendly and waved (they don't know us yet...lol). I have decided to go with the second guest room for my work room and forgo the front room that has one solid wall of windows to the front. We'll be putting in a Murphey bed on one wall in the second guest room and that still leaves me plenty of wall space and a huge closet for all my stuff!
A friend has also suggested we offer a bonus at contract signing to the agent who gets us a contract within two months, a bit less for 3 etc. and our realtor is working up a plan. Don't uncross your fingers yet, Crossed Body Parts Brigade!

JUUUUUUUULES!! I am sooo excited to see your NEW house coming together so...it looks great. Looks like you have a conservation area behind ya? So noooooooo neighbors in the rear??? That would be so great!!!

I really hope your house goes under contract THIS WEEK!! I totally understand how stressful it is.
