Part seven of the home building journey, Brady and Jenna talk about what it was like to be so close to moving into their new home and what it was like to do the pre-finish walk through of their home.
Pre-Finish Walk Through
The day we finally got to walk in and see our house, full of all the decisions we made, had come. I can’t even put in to words how exciting it was to FINALLY walk into our home and see everything all together. We had been driving by for weeks and weeks watching it go up and seeing the exterior changes, but that doesn’t even compare to stepping inside and finally seeing it all!
Nate met us at our house and before walking in warned us that there were still things that needed to be done. There are individuals that meticulously walk through your home looking for “blemishes” that need to be touched up before closing. And when I say meticulous, I mean there was blue painters tape all over marking where something needed to be painted, or sanded, or filled in. What a relief to know the care that goes in to making your home literally perfect. Bryan, our construction manager, even stopped by to introduce himself and show us a couple areas that they would be replacing in the flooring and why (spilled glue). I appreciated seeing yet another person that was invested in the quality of our home.
My husband brought our upgrade addendums with on this walk through to help us stay focused on our choices. If something wasn’t right, Nate made a note in his phone to follow up on after our meeting. (I think that list ended up with only two items on it after 45 minutes of going through every room.) The builders and contractors are thorough and care about doing it right.
My favorite part of this walk through was Nate’s genuine excitement for us and the choices we made. Once again, everyone we worked with invested in our home building journey with them—it’s another reason we feel so confident not only in the choices we made for our home but in our decision to build with Thomsen Homes again.
