Default Minto Avalon (Orleans) - progress thread

Hi there,

I thought I'd start a progress thread for those of us building through Minto in Avalon (Stage 14 - near Potobello and Brian Cobourn). So far Kariw and I are close neighbours - just one street over - and we'd love to find others in the neighbourhood.

Cheers!

For new potential neighbours:

We are Lot 118 on Nestleton street - our foundation was dug last week - hooray! We have completed our structural and framing appointments at the Design Centre and are scheduled for our 2 finishing appointments in early March. We have 3 girls ages 8, 8, and 13. Looking forward to seeing our house go up and following the progress of our neighbours as well!

Hi Kariw - I went by our lot today and drove around to see yours (158)...we're just around the corner from each other. If you go to the end of Caracole where the houses are already occupied (towards commercial space) and hit Nestleton, our lot is right across from the intersection. About a 2 minute walk I would say. :-)

Cheers!

Very cool, I too drove by today, there was some progress on our home.

So yes, we're lot 158 on Caracole, Rockcliffe model, closing mid-August of this year.

Structural and framing appointments done, finishing should be done (or close to it) by this weekend.

We signed the purchase agreement back in June, it seemed so far away at the time!

June - wow! We signed at the end of September and I thought THAT was far away! Only 6 months and a bit more to go - this is very exciting. It'll be fun when we get to have a walk-through once the framing is all done.

Have you made all of your finishing/colour choices? We have most of ours done - still have our ensuite to do.

Hi SophieP!
We just bought the quick occupancy home on lot 121 on Nestleton St.! We have three children aged 2, 4 and 6 so there will be plenty of babysitting opportunities for your daughter

Hi SandraSG - welcome - I'm so happy to meet another neighbour!!!! Funny how the 3 of us on here (so far) all have 3 kids - love it! My 13-year old will be SO happy to have more babysitting opportunities. What model did you buy have and when is your closing date?

Cheers

Hi neighbours!

I drove by our lots again today (they're getting close to pouring our foundation so I'm taking progress pictures). SandraSG - we're almost directly across from one another!! My girls were very excited to hear that I 'met' more of our neighbours with 3 more kids. Your house looks great - it's an Erickson, right? We had looked at that model online and liked the layout but it was hard to know without seeing a model of it. When do you move in?

Kariw - you have a beautiful pie-shaped lot! You will have a lovely home and property - can't wait to see it go up! We had a pie-shaped lot in our first home in Rockland and loved it!

Cheers

Hi neighbours!
SophieP: Yes, it is the Erickson. We just bought it last week. It was a quick-occupancy sale so we were able to see the finished product before deciding to buy it or not. The downside is that we didn't get to pick any of the finishings and upgrades. The upside is house is completely finished so we get to move in as soon as we close on our current house. Not sure when that will be though. It's going up on the market in Wed. Keeping my fingers crossed for a quick sale!

Good luck on the sale of your house SandraSG! Where is your current house located (if you don't mind me asking?) We're going to put ours up for sale in the next couple of weeks as well...it's a pretty stressful process - whew.
