Four More Weeks...

We are now down to four weeks left.  We will close on Monday, July 13th.  True to their word Ryan Homes mailed us a four page letter that outlines our Pre-settlement meeting, Settlement, Utilities, and moving reminders.

Today, I called the utility companies to schedule turnover of utilities and stopping our current ones.  This was a bit challenging since our address doesn't exist yet in many databases.  I also set up mail forwarding at USPS for once we move.  There are some really good coupons available from Target, Wayfair and Best Buy (10% off).  Also, if you go directly to Lowe's website you can sign up for a 10% off coupon.

Got this email about Ryan Homes house wrap: "The metallic housewrap was discontinued division-wide with all sales beginning in 3rd quarter of last year."

So, I guess that means we only get the "Ryan Homes" logo house wrap; which doesn't seem to be up to par.

We have been looking at appliances, since we still need a Washer, Dryer, and Refrigerator.  I would love to also purchase a dehumidifier, water softener and back-up sump pump, but we'll see.


We are planning to buy:

Samsung Activewash with Built In Sink 4.8-cu ft High-Efficiency Top-Load Washer (Platinum)
Model #: WA48J7770AP

Samsung 7.4-cu ft Top Load Electric Dryer with Steam Cycle (Platinum)
Model #: DV48J7770EP

Samsung 28.15-cu ft French Door Refrigerator (Stainless Steel) 
Model #: RF28HMEDBSR

Lowe's had the washer and dryer on sale for $748 each (regularly $999).  However, they are going to price match this to a local appliance store for $699 each.  Then, this coming weekend, there is an additional 10% off.  This will make them $628.20 each.

Also, we found the refrigerator on sale for $1999, regularly $3299, at a local appliance store.  Lowe's will price match this too.  Plus, when you buy two or more 5-Year Major Appliance Extended Protection Plans, they only cost $96.97 each.

Lastly, Lowe's will allow us to use the 10% off moving coupon on top of everything.

Total savings: almost $2500.

Now, I just need them to deliver it shortly after we move.


  1. We purchased a washer and dryer from lowes. The LG with steam cycle and it was a 40+ day shipment out of Korea. I would order soon to be sure.

    1. We were told there was some type of dock strike that was holding up orders. I'm going to try and order this stuff this week.

  2. We are also waiting for them to give us a date so that we can schedule everything.. Where did u find the Wayfair coupon??

    1. When you go to the USPS website to change addresses, it is one of the coupons available. They email you the single use coupon.

  3. We built in 2012 and they never offered the metallic housewrap. We only got the Ryan wrap you pictured. Guess there were some lucky folks between 2012 and 2014.

  4. We got a very similar refrigerator - our drawer is inside vs outside. I would've loved to have it inside but alas! I did not know about the coupons...
