We Bought A House!

28 Feb

Sorry for being MIA… I swear it was for a good reason:

We bought a house!

After spending the past 3 months looking at short sales and having no luck, I stumbled upon a fantastic offer from Ryland Homes. It’s in a neighborhood that we love, but always thought was out of our price range. Ryland just introduced a new series of homes, and it was right in our budget! So on Saturday, we headed down to the sales center to take a looksie. And of course, we signed a contract to build a home:

Here’s the artist’s rendering of our new house:

And our floor plan:

And our lot:

We haven’t picked colors or anything yet.. that’s this week. They’re going to start building ASAP, so I’ll be posting about a million updates! We are so ridiculously excited about everything and greatly looking forward to moving into our new home in June!

    CONGRATS!!!!!! I love the house plan! Is the kitchen open to the family room? I think that’s my favorite part! It’s going to be great for entertaining!!! Can’t wait to hear all about it!!! Hubs and I were talking the other day about when we built our house 18 years ago!

      Thank you! The kitchen is open to the family room. Its a really open floor plan and the use of space is fantastic. It is EVERYTHING we were looking for!! 🙂

    Where in Jacksonville? My fiance owns a home in the North Side area (I think that’s what it’s called.)

      We’re on the very southside of Jacksonville – in St Johns County actually!
