New home update

Yay! the model homes from our builder opened up for one day only to those of us that purchased during phase 1. I brought my camera and took mad pics, cuz we might not get to visit the model again until January.



The beautiful thing is that one of the two models is the Livingston, aka this is how our place is going to look when it's built. We were so excited to actually see how much space we have, instead of trying to envision things through the floorplan.

The good news: The place is fantastic! It has a spacious kitchen, and a huge family room. It's exactly what we were looking for in a layout. So many places have small family rooms, which doesn't make any sense. The computer niche, which joins the kitchen and the laundry room, will be where I put my new Mac when Starcraft II comes out. The master bedroom is about as big as our living room and kitchen combined, back at our downtown condo.

The bad news: The living/dining room wasn't as big as we thought it was in the layout. We're not worried though, we'll probably just make it a really big dining room instead of trying to cram a ton of furniture in there a la Shaun Sequeira. That's about where our disappointment ended, we were in love with everything else!

The ugly news: These fuckers at Arista pimped the shit out of the model home. Hardwood floor throughout, quartz countertop, upgraded cabinets, undermount sinks, upgraded washrooms, upgraded fireplace, upgraded what the fuck! They had potlights everywhere!

I've become more knowledgeable of late as to how much it costs to get a place looking like the model home. And what they've spent on upgrades, we can't afford to spend. But look at the place, it looks so sick! I guess it's off to Home Depot university for me.

Here's a link to my album if you wanted to check it out some more. CathyAl can't wait!

Once rendonre modeling began the work, I asked if they can add a few of the tiles in the kitchen which were cracked as well as putting up a new tile back splash. Their home additions northern va prices were reasonable and their work was excellent. My kitchen looks like it was just installed brand new. Great service. I strongly recommend!
