12/19/12- Under Contract

We sold our first home in August after being on the market only 8 days. We searched existing homes before we decided to build a Verona with Ryan homes (thanks to hubby). I wish we would have come to this decision earlier. Now we have to go month to month on our lease.  Living in these cramped quarters until the house is ready in April will be difficult. Although it's not the best situation...I am thankful to GOD that we sold our house and have now found the home of our dreams.

I never thought I was going to build again. Especially with the number of foreclosures and short sales on the market. Unfortunately, we weren't able to find any of those good deals in a desirable school districts and location. So here we are today BUILDING for the second time!


  1. Hi PinkRage, I just discovered your blog from a fellow blogger!!

    Welcome Welcome Welcome to the RH Family Blog Land!!

    I would love to follow your journey and for you to follow ours too.
    We are building a Rome in Maryland. We are pretty much in the same situation. We downgraded significantly to build this home and it was rough but excited that it turned out for our good. YAY!

  3. Good luck with your build!

  4. We have a similar timeline. Good luck on your build! :)

  5. Congratulations on selling your home so quickly. You must be so excited to be building your home. Being able to choose your own flooring, tile, cabinets, etc. would feel like a dream to me! Wishing you luck as you move forward.

    1. Thanks Brandi! Hopefully, now that all of our decisions are finalized...I can start enjoying the process of building.
