Here are some photos during our pre dry wall meeting, my husband was there so he was the one who paid attention to our PM with regards to electrical stuff and i basically did the photo shoot for record purposes :)
It was quick, we did a tour around the house and our PM was very open to questions and he answered everything knowledgeably.

I'm gonna go ahead and start writing about flooring! since its one of the most exciting part...
We went to our flooring appointment, it was one hour away from where we live, the meeting took about 2 hours, which made us 15mins late with our appointment with Guardian (Yep, it was a busy day for us.) It was partly me because its so hard choosing the right shade of ceramic to go with the deco... hmmm...
We met with N who was very nice and she really cared about what color we're gonna choose, if it matches with everything else and what not.
We already knew what color of cabinets we want so it was fairly easy part...
We are having the Rushmore painted hazelnut glaze cabinets with Maple espresso for the gourmet island. I'm so excited to see what this combination would look like, i saw some on pinterest and they look divine! (credits to my husband who picked out this combination)
New Caledonia granite which we both like seeing it from the model homes.
We upgraded our vinyl so there's more texture and the pattern that i like is the on the photo below so its 1 step up to the free vinyl.
We are having vinyl in the kitchen and morning room, then carpet all over 1st floor and 2 floor.
It was tempting to go ahead and upgrade to ceramic tiles in the kitchen and morning room but it would cost us about $4,000 more if we did, that $4,000 was already spent on upgrading carpet and ceramic tiles on masters and hallway bath.
Will just save up to upgrade everything with ceramics and hardwood mix... in the futuuurrrreee....
|You can see a peak of the upgrade padding for the carpets which we didn't get, it would be more $$$ for us we did, so i asked my husband to pick an upgrade, stain resistant carpet or upgraded padding... and he chose carpet.. so that's that.|
|This is the first choice we did for the kids bath, we didn't upgrade the cabinetry and the counter top, i like the white marbled culture in the bathrooms mainly because it looks clean and white. I also didn't think the kids would care what color of cabinets they have for their bathroom. Wheat cabinets look light and clean anyways.|
|This is it.. one of the upgrades that i did was the backsplash :) I did the second upgrade to have that dark deco you see on the left side, to be placed in a diamond shape design with every 3-4 tiles apart... exciting!!:) That tile on the back of the cabinet is the one we're going to use as the main tile for backsplash and use the deco on the left... N said we could mix and match so that was fun...|
In the above photo you will also see the color of the carpet, i really wanted a light tone for the carpet so we didn't have a hard time choosing that one. I know it's looks too light but hey, it's stain resistant with a warranty.

We're a family of five, Johnson my husband, Anika, Joseph, Angela our silly kids and me, A.j.
Last month, we decided to buy our first house. Yes, we are now on board in the roller coaster of building a new construction. We decided to buy a home in South Jersey, we already live here so my kids won't have to change schools, and the location is perfect (close to grocery stores, the school and in laws) plus we love the town.
I always passed by the office, with a lot of questions to my super patient Sales rep who's our "lucky" charm ;). We did a lot of master selection sheets, from different floor plans, to doing 3.5% down payment to 5%, fha vs. conventional, finished basement to unfinished, hardwood to vinyl, you get the picture :)
Fast forward to March 2, 2016 (with LOTS of visits to the model home and one other location, Thanks for your patience guys, you know who you are K and M) we reserved the lot.
We chose the Venice model elevation C with full front porch no stones and no shutters :( this elevation is the only one that we can put a porch on sadly although i already envisioned the color of the shutters were gonna pick out, i don't have one... but i get more windows, so its still a win win.
Future home picture below:
My first blog ends here, comments and suggestions welcome :)
