One little tiny upgrade

My Sales Rep rocks! I am sooo happy today we were able to add one more structural change even though the structural changes finalization was two weeks ago. I wanted to change our half bath (powder room) into a full bathroom down in the basement but we were not sure of our budget due to the add on with the flooring department alongside with Guardian. We got the final numbers on our mortgage two days ago and found out we can still afford to make any changes to the house. I really wanted the full bathroom in the basement and emailed my sales rep right away to see if there were any chance at all if we could make a change.

Her first response was NO, and that it was too late since they will be building our house in about three weeks. She also mentioned that they already made the order but she will put a call to her manager to double-check. The next day she emailed us saying yes, we can do it but we would have to run down to the office to make the change so she can submit the paperwork tonight so they can quickly put in the order. Alongside with the structural change we also added an electrical switched outlet in the kitchen so we can put rope lights above the cabinets shelves. I am sooooo thrilled that we were able to make a change thanks to my sales rep she really works hard for us!

I also found out our estimated closing date would be June 24th the earliest date would be June 15th but for now they are shooting for the 24th. Which is perfect my apartment lease ends on the end of may which makes all of this easier that I can pay month to month rent. I will find out more for sure once we speak with our program manager on the 11th of April.

Now the wait begins...... =)
