Utility Bills?

Anyone mind sharing how much their utility bills have been like since they moved into their Ryan Home?  I am so curious because I am trying to draft up a budget and have only 2 examples to go by which one was super cheap and the other was kind of on the high side.

Hello all,

I don’t have much of an update except that we are going in the house on the 31st and will have an opportunity to see the walls up with all of the trim and paint, cabinets, counters, tile, and appliances!  I did break down and buy a new digital camera so I will be snapping lots of pictures on Monday.  Until then you will have to settle for a picture of our freshly poured driveway!  (special thanks to our SM for sending us this picture)

The house is coming along and will look very nice with the black shutters and red door with the fresh green landscaping.  We are less than 30 days away baby, (and the crowd goes) HIP HIP....HIP HIP....

Pre Pre-Dry Wall

We are 2 days away from our pre-drywall inspection but in the meantime I thought I would bring you all up to speed on what has been happening since I last checked in.  Yesterday was the meeting with Guardian.  The meeting went well except there was no dedicated electric in the basement for the surround sound and TV hook up.  The problem has been addressed and should be worked out soon.  The meeting wrapped up in about 30 min which left me free to explore the house.  Let me just say that this was my first time setting foot in the house since it has been constructed.  At first I walked around mapping out where things would go and trying to figure out if the family room would be big enough without the 4 foot bump out.  After about 5 minutes of doing that it hit me...this house is HUGE...OMGosh...What? that moment I became overwhelmed for a minute but I know I am making the right choice because I am so tired of being modest and outgrowing a house and feeling like we are bursting at the seams.  After I coached myself a little I was good.  Sooooo on with the excitement!

I did snap a few pics so you all could see what was going on.  Keep in mind I am having to rely on my iphone so they aren’t the best but I think I am going to just go out and buy another digital camera because I am missing out on pictures just because I can’t find my existing camera (which may have been packed by accident).
