Home Orientation tomorrow

Sadly have no new pictures to post since we're locked out. But tomorrow is the New Home Orientation. I hope this isn't a waste of our time. I know how a dishwasher and faucets work. Ha. I hope we go over each and every piece of the house and that any concerns and nitpicks we have are heard and addressed. Then later in the day we have our independent Inspector coming out, and that should take around 3 hours. Then during this time we are also having a fencing contractor coming out to give us a firm estimate. We'd love to get our fence in before winter gets going. So it will be a busy day, and will be the most amount of time we've spent in the house. I'm sure this will make it feel more "real". Right now I have 2 opposing sides going on:
1. Wants to clinically look at the house in a detached way and observe anything I think is an issue or needs to be corrected. 
2. Is just so happy to have this be real and almost be done that I'm overcome with joy and want to just lay on the carpet. 

It would probably be in our best interest to be in #1 as much as possible since we have the rest of our lives living here to then feel like #2. Ha. I want to catch any issues now so they don't become huge annoyances later. 


  1. Good luck and have fun seeing the house. I tried to also be detached but I was so excited..even being excited you will catch things. Oncenyou are in u will catch even more! Ours so far have been small things..can't wait to see pictures have fun!!
