  1. hi whitney! Loving your blog! We are going for presale tomorrow for Toll brother's house and didn't have any idea with the entire process. Your blog has been helpful! Thanks for sharing your experiences!

  2. You must have been very excited when you saw your dream house with a completed roof. Speaking of roofs, is that a metal roof in your front porch? That’s a beautiful accent to the main roof and stone wall. Your dream house is so beautiful! ->Allyson Duguay

  3. It's nice to see that the progress of your new home had been consisted. You started on the roof, sidings, exterior paint, and now, it's all complete! I checked your other blog posts, and I can truly say that your house is starting to look like a home. Congrats!
