Another long delay

So we received a call from our sales rep today that they wanted to combine two of our change orders into one. Typically I wouldn't be irritated but today I was since we still have not heard back from our loan processor to answer one simple question... Are we in underwriting yet. 

In speaking with our sales rep she stated the status say "processing" but of course that provides no information. Our sales rep did say they expect our house to start the first week in September and that if we haven't heard anything that could be good news

Here's to waiting two more weeks!

What can I say?

Over the past few weeks we have been waiting on NVR to approve our loan, but we haven't made it to underwriting yet. Kind of frustrating with the long waiting, but as you know this is to be expected with Ryan. So I'm keeping my frustration at a minimum.

But I didn't start this post to just vent, I did come to hopefully provide some useful information. 

During the down time, I've been figuring ways to ensure when we do our walkthroughs we have a plan of attack to make sure everything is done and in its proper place. In a previous post I talked about creating a spreadsheet of where everything is to be placed. I know some people are more visual so I suggest a free software that allows you to upload your floor plan and decorate as you please. That software is Sweet Home 3D. For people who are great in the arts this tool has many upsides. For those like me who are not that artistic from a visual standpoint, it will get the job done. I have uploaded some samples of what ours would look like using the software. 

The reason I'm doing this is now that I have looked at the plan in 3D, it's helped me to realize I may want to put the tv outlets in different places. 

Hopefully this helps some of you.
