We got our Approval letter from NVR today.. We are ahead of the game as we already picked our carpet, upgrades, siding colors and guardain wiring.
We stayed with the standard carpet with upgraded padding. We also went with linoleum because we plan to put in ceramic and hard wood floors on our own.
One upgrade I would like to mention is the master bathroom tub upgrade. I decided to do this because it gives you a bigger tub with oval shape and it also gives you an 80gallon hot water heater. This was a good deal for me as my wife and I get up around the same time a couple times per week.
So far our experience with NVR and Ryan Homes has been perfect! I had some serious reservations after reading some of the horror stories on the web. What I found was there were 30 -40 homebuilders who did not like thier experience or final product. On the positive side of things I found tons of people who were completely happy with the product and professionalism they received. I would tell anyone that is thinking of building with Ryan Homes to talk to as many people as possible. What I found was a community of very happy Ryan Home owners and I am currently also part of that group.
I will continue to update our adventure as it plays out. Feel free to ask if you have any questions pertaining to our new homebuilding experience. Let the ground breaking Begin!!
