NEW HOUSE UPDATE: The Walk-thru!

Sit  back and grab your favorite drink because this post is wordy and picture heavy. I am about to take you inside our new home for the  very first time.

Thursday was the start of our move towards moving into  our new home. We did our walk thru. This is when the builders orientation rep. walks the new owners through there home, and we check out how things work. 
We open all doors, drawers, windows, turn on faucets, fill up sinks, start the stove, and run the dishwasher, etc. as she walks us around our new home.
I am continuing to learn that our builder is very conscientious about their customer service. She already had marked some areas with blue painters tape, and had written some notes.
She told us almost first thing that our counter top would be completely replaced due to two scratches that were too deep to buff out. 
We were very glad that they were replacing it instead of trying to buff it out, even though we do have a bit of concern that it will be in before we actually move in.
As we walked thru our new black door?

We were like kids on Christmas morning when we stepped through this door we were greeted by our new hardwood floor running from the front door all the way back to the Great room back wall?.
Even with the dust and smudges we loved it. 
She told us once they fix all of the items that we mark with blue painters tape there will be a final cleaning before they hand over the keys to us. 
If you turn to  your left you will enter a little hallway and that is where the laundry room, guest bath and the guest bedroom are at.
Small guest bathroom. I opted for another shower vs. a bathtub because we all use the shower in our home and when my Mom comes to visit I did not want her to have to step in and out of a bathtub.

The guest room is at the very front of the house, You can see the window in the center is the window with the black shutters in the front. As you leave the guest wing ( it is a very small wing, but it is a wing ;) you will start your way down the hall to the rest of the house.

You probably can?t see it but my sweet hubby is grinning from ear to ear. The door on the right goes out to the garage and the door on the left goes into the office den.
We have 8 ft. French doors leading into the office. 

We put carpet in here, but plan on replacing it with the hardwood down the road after we get a few other projects done. 
I already have plans in my head swirling around on how I would like to decorate this room. All in good time!!
As you pass the office/den if you look to your right you will see the kitchen?.

At the end of the kitchen is the dinette. We have an island that is 9 ft long and 4ft deep. I call it a heli-pad, and I am convinced I can use it for a dance floor!!

I am sure you are all wondering why I did  not get my farmhouse sink. They did not offer any for this model.
Stainless was standard so I upgraded to...
