|My Beautiful Wife Putting the Sold Sign on our Lot|
Our lot is pictured below, highlighted in yellow. We have an end Lot across from a green area that is being converted into park. Right now the street just ends, I'm hoping they DO NOT continue the street into the park to create a parking lot. Hopefully they create an entrance from the main street and not direct traffic through our neighborhood. At any rate, we chose this lot because of this green area and the park that may be built some day.

The picture below doesn't quite have the lot boundaries in the picture (side-to-side). I kept backing up trying to get the shot and figured I would just take two pictures instead. When we begin construction I may take some pictures from the berm on this lot across the street.

This pictures shows the walking paths and park benches that are throughout our neighborhood. These are supposed to continue into the new park and join our community to this new space. I'm pretty excited because it might give us enough distance to run. Notice the neighborhood behind us has already planted some Cyprus (not a landscaper, I'm assuming they are in that family) and we have a few more near the walking path for privacy and noise abatement. Happy about that.

As you can see, there has been little construction on the center of the horseshoe. This picture is taken from the edge of our lot looking back up the horseshoe. The framing on our side of the street (Left side of Pic, half way down) is nearly finished being framed now (not in picture). They have not put in windows or began work inside yet. This is a custom builder and I swear there is only one guy building this house. The tractor all the way at the other end (Almost exact middle of the picture) is the first Ryan Homes house to be built in this new sub-division (A Courtland Gate). They had not dug the basement yet in this picture. As of the writing of this page (not depicted in this picture), they have finished framing the house and have all the windows and doors installed. They have passed this customer builder who had at least a two month head start. At this rate, we may actually move into our home before these poor folks (I guess from this perspective, I don't feel so bad). The other thing you can see in this picture is our One lonely street light for the entire street. Hopefully this will change. One block over they have one of these street lights every 50 yards or so.

This is at the entrance to our sub-division. There are a lot of these little whimsical elements throughout. The playing children, park benches and gazebos.

This is one of the two ponds at the entrance to our sub-division. We also have two at the back of the sub-division by us. The ones up front are a bit smaller than the others.

Not being near the ocean anymore, I think this is the feature my family is most excited about. The Swimming Pools!
