Welcome to our new blog!

Hello friends & family!

Welcome to our new blog - Thoman House.  Since so many of our family and friends don't live in the Maryland/DC region, we thought this would be the best way to update everyone on the construction of our new home.   There's not much to look at right now...

Our property
Construction is slated to start in mid-November.  As you can imagine, we're very anxious to see SOMETHING happen on the lot since we purchased the lot/home at the end of July.  As Nick says, "Can't they just dig a hole already?"  If the construction starts on time and everything goes smoothly (aka - can we please limit the amount of blizzards we get this year?!?), we should be in the new house in January or February of 2011.

After going back and forth with a number of different new home builders, we decided to go with Winchester Homes.  Specifically, we're building their Newbury model.  We were sad to say goodbye to our condo at Grosvenor, but it was time to move on and get Nick some closet space!

Goodbye Grosvenor!

While we are waiting for the builders to start digging, we've had to make a ton of decisions about structure, upgrades, design, etc.  We've had lots of appointments with the builders, contractors, and the design folk.

Decisions, decisions, decisions!

There probably won't be many updates in the next few weeks as we are still in the "pre-construction" phase.  However, we're hoping to update on a more regular basis once the actual construction process starts.  Nick cannot wait to see some progress on the lot!
