Here Alex and I are with the KB Home Sold sign out in front of our lot…..2400 Henry Rifle Road! This Friday we have our final appointment at the design studio where we’ll sign off on our final “design” decision! Then they’ll order the materials, make a plot plan, and then….begin construction!

They say we’ll be in sometime in November….we’ll see, Alex and I aren’t counting on that. And since our lease is good ’til the end of January we’ll always have a place to call home :-)

Entry filed under: new house.

new find… Today for lunch…

    Together you, Alex, Kristin, & I can change the definition of surburbia which is currently defined as:

    Suburbia In the United States

    – Lower densities than central cities, dominated by single family homes on small plots of land, surrounded at close quarters by very similar dwellings.
    – Zoning patterns that separate residential & commercial development, as well as different intensities & densities of development. Daily needs are not within walking distance of most homes.
    – Subdivisions carved from previously rural land into multiple-home developments built by a single real estate company.
    – These subdivisions are often segregated by minute differences in home value, creating entire communities where family incomes & demographics are almost completely homogenous, although suburban developments have become & are becoming more diverse.
    – Shopping malls & strip malls behind large parking lots instead of a classic downtown shopping district.
    – A road network designed to conform to a hierarchy, including culs-de-sac leading to larger residential streets, in turn leading to large collector roads, in place of the grid pattern common to most central cities & pre-World War II suburbs.
    – Limited or no access to public transit.
    – Sometimes a lower crime rate than a comparable urban neighborhoods.
