4 month update

We've been in the house almost 4 months now and we still love it just as much as when we first moved in. We finally put up some ceiling fans, had the yard pre-graded for the sod, and the front porch walkway/steps redone. The front walkway was starting to tilt, so they replaced it and went ahead and redid the steps while they were at it. Several more houses are being built on our street and two lots have sold across the cul-de-sac from us. The neighbors have been awesome and I love that there are so many kids around the neighborhood. Ryan homes started building the pool and pool house a little bit ago and they're both pretty small. But at least the neighborhood will have one! 

I can't get over how expensive it is when moving into a new home. All of the little projects like screen door, blinds, ceiling fans, furniture, etc. all add up very quickly! Our neighbor even said that if they spend one more penny on getting the house together, she's going to go crazy. Lol

We haven't noticed any cracks in our walls yet, but we have noticed nail pops here and there. Ryan Homes came out after I believe 30 days and fixed the nails pops we found then. There have also been the occasional scrapes and tiny dents in the wall from living here and from moving furniture. They're supposed to come out several months from now to do one more drywall touch up, so we're not too worried about that. After that, we'll hopefully paint! We are also going to hold off on putting in a patio because the ground will continue to settle even after the grass is in. They're supposed to lay sod around the end of May. 

We do recommend getting a dehumidifier with the hose connection so you don't constantly have to empty the bucket. We have the house going into the floor drain by the furnace. I would also suggest to buy 4 or 5 filters for the furnace because it'll need changed every month or two. 

I can't think of anything else right now, so I'll try to update after the grass is in!
