For the last week, I have been emailing Dean at NVR Mortgage everyday to monitor the points on the mortgage rate. Last week, when we entered our 30 day lock period, the points were getting less and less appealing. I was starting to get worried. The last 4 days we saw some recovery on that and decided to go one day past our target point rate to lock. Today was that day. We locked in with what we considered an optimal point rate. This was even better than the terms at USAA. Thanks for this one. Now, if everything goes right, I won't have to take money to closing---too awesome.
So all of this left me rather elated and I practically skipped out of work. We arrived at the homesite and both Troy, who was doing the trim and our siding guys were wrapping up their day. The great thing about this group of tradesmen, they do really treat the homeowners nicely when we arrive at the site to take a peek.

Well the remaining doors were all put up, the microwave arrived and the cooktop was installed. Plumbing had installed all of the interior faucets, toilets, and drains. Today Troy finished the trim in the basement. He also warned me that the bannister leading down to the basement had been damaged and they were ordering a replacement. Our siding friends had finished all but the siding from the gables. Once the gables are completed and the shutters are on, it is going to look great.
