Three years ago, my husband, our son and I moved from western NY to Pennsylvania for my husband to attend pharmacy school. He's graduating in June and we're very ready to move back home! Being away from family is tough. We currently lease an old townhouse. It will be nice to have our own space to decorate and have more privacy. We've referred to many blogs from those who are building and have built a Ryan Home and they have been so beneficial during our selection process. I wanted to be able to help others in the same way.
We decided to build vs buy used because it was almost impossible to find something that had everything we were looking for. Our top priority was to be in an excellent school district. We wanted a colonial with a large updated kitchen with plenty of counter space, open floor plan, large yard, side entrance garage, dining rm, 4bdrms, at least 2 full baths, central AC, and the list goes on. We decided that building would be our best option and we are glad we chose to do it. We were able to get everything on our wish list and the way we want it, especially the great school district for our children.
Our loan was approved and we had our selection meeting. Our first PM meeting is scheduled for May 17th and the tentative date to break ground is 5/20!!! We chose "The Ravenna" because we loved the floor plan and the option for a colonial style. We chose elevation A with a side entrance garage. Here is our little man next to the sold sign on our lot!
