New House plans

Now that we have sold our house I feel a bit more comfortable talking about our new house.  Below is a photo what it will look like, except ours will have a double garage.  If you click on this link it will take you to a tour of the model home.  That home has now sold; our home will be similar, but there are a few changes.
 
Below are the plans to the home, I hope you can see them.  When we first looked at the house, all the walls were up, although not bricked yet, the windows were in and the roof was shingled.  The builder had made some changes that we can't undo.  So the fireplace is where the window to the left of the fireplace and he moved the window to where the fireplace was.  Basically there is a window either side of the fireplace.  Also there are no doors or the wall facing the living room where the second bedroom/den is.  That will now be a dining room.
We are only getting a bedroom, the bathroom and a linen closet finished in the basement, we are going to do the rest ourselves to save a lot of money.  They charge $55,000 to finish the basement which is just ridiculous.

We have a corner lot on the bottom of the hill, and the back will be very private.  The back faces north and the living room windows on the side face west.  Although we neither have a golf course view or a walkout basement we are pretty happy with what we have got.

We have an appointment on Sunday to firm up the deal and give them another cheque.  I have also requested a tour of the house to see how they are getting on as we haven't been up in a couple of weeks.  So I'll take more photos then.

Hello Gill, we are blog friends of Denise, An English Girl Rambles, and I came to yours from her site. A very big congrats on having sold your home and moving to a new place. We have been trying to sell our older Victorian home for quite awhile now, so are envious and wish you all the best on your new adventure. I have read older posts and you mentioned Mississauga, which we know having stayed there in Sept while we visited Toronto and we have friends living there. They also sold a country home and moved to the city.
If you would like to drop into our blog for a visit, we always enjoy company. Congrats again!
