Our Lehi Abode

I start a new job in Orem soon. Carrie and I have been living with her parents for the past year as I waited for a job offer from the firm to materialize. It finally came and we began the house hunt. We looked at homes from Herriman all the way to Mapleton, which is twenty minutes south of Orem. We toured a spec home in Mapleton that we fell in love with. Mapleton was too far from family, but the builder had an available lot on Traverse Mountain in Lehi. We liked the lot, so we made an offer on the home, and then the fun began! Picking out paint colors, brick, carpet, cabinetry, and appliances was a blast. Our new baby girl comes in late April, and the builder expects that we will be able to move in by the end of March. It's an exciting time for us! Our builder, Castle Creek Homes, has been awesome to work with.  There will be a few differences between our home and the photos below, but they are minor.  Clicking on "Location" at the bottom of this post should take you to a map of our lot.

Ours won't have that little "eyebrow" of roof over the garage.  Also, the garage door should be white.

We like the little office/formal living room by the front door.

Walk-in closets in every bedroom, and the master bedroom has two!  We also love the loft at the top of the stairs and the laundry upstairs with the bedrooms.  I don't have a floorplan of the basement, but it's a basement.
