And now for the most amazing part. God's hand has been in the building of this home from the beginning. This house is a miracle on so many different levels. And I don't think that even we realize how much He has orchestrated on our behalf in the building of our home. But yesterday, once again, God showed himself in the process and showed himself MIGHTY! Not only do we not have to buy a point, and not only did our house payment not go up, BUT we are actually going to get money back at closing! MONEY BACK! We have been told since we signed the contract that we were going to need about 2,000 dollars at closing. And yesterday when we locked in our rate and they sent the final numbers over to us it showed that we were going to need $2,850 dollars at closing. But when I looked over the numbers I realized that they had only credited us with $2,000 in down payment money when we actually paid $2,500 and they did not have the $2,500 credit that our realtor was giving us from his commission. So once they corrected that $3,000 error! We will walk away at closing with a check for about 150 dollars! GOD IS GOOD!
They came yesterday and re-graded the land (this is the last time they will be doing that). They took down the black plastic fence that was around our house and did the entire property. We now have a huge pile of dirt in the backyard (forgot to get pictures) but the yard looks amazing!
Our dishwasher and water heater came late yesterday afternoon (no pictures because it was too dark in the house) but they were not installed.
The HVAC crew was there and installed the air handler, the air conditioner and MOST of the vent covers. Not sure why not all of them were done but I'm sure they will be back to install the rest.
And the granite guys were there too installing the counters in the bathrooms.

I don't know if they will be working down at the house today or not. I know we have some tile issues that are supposed to be fixed and I thought that the plumbers were coming yesterday so maybe they will be there today. We also have a few small cabinet issues that I was hoping would be fixed before the start of next week too. Today will be a wait and see kind of day (since some Saturdays they work and some they don't).
