We've Got Dirt!!

We signed a contract to buy a house in Chesapeake, VA today. Wheeeeeeeee!!!

It's a different development than the one posted earlier; this one's much bigger (the development that is). The house is bigger too, by about 500 square feet. It's a MUCH nicer house! The builder has done a lot of upper-end houses - this is his first foray into our price range. He builds quality and that's really important to us. We won't get the extra garage for free like at the other place, but we're much happier with the house in general as well as with the neighborhood. It's good all around.

Our lot is lucky number 13. Funny, but that's the same number lot we were going to go with at the other development. This time we ended up with it because the builder gave us an incentive. He had already specced a house for that lot (that we liked) and had all the permits, etc. for it, so we took it. It also means that we'll get our house in time for us to move in at our own pace. If all goes on schedule (and when does that ever happen?) we should have about 5-6 weeks to move in before our lease is up. If they fall behind, they've got several weeks to finish up that won't have a huge impact on us. So far so good!
