The RiverTown Sales Center is “Under Construction”. In addition to adding a separate office for the WaterSong project, all displays have been removed and a new display highlighting the RiverTown Lifestyle is coming soon. Can’t wait to see the finished product!!
We attended the annual RiverTown Luau, held at the RiverClub on the St. Johns River. It was originally scheduled for Labor Day, but was rescheduled thanks to Hurricane Dorian. Prince Pele and his Polynesian Dancers entertained us with dancing, audience participation and line dancing. The dancers ranged from his granddaughters, aged 6 and 8, to his five daughters, and his wife, Bless. It’s definitely a family affair! Hundreds of RiverTown residents enjoyed an afternoon of swimming, eating (Food Trucks were present), Limbo, and hula-hoops.
Once the trades-electric, plumbing, and mechanical (HVAC) finished their rough installations and before the Pre-Drywall walk through with my builder, I had a home inspector check out the completed work. While he found a few minor issues, I was able to point everything out to my builder during our walk-through the next day and all were corrected prior to the county inspection. My inspector, Charlie Hovey with 904 Home Inspections, was impressed with the quality of construction, including 2 x 6” exterior walls and shear walls located all around the laundry room and master bathroom which were later insulated for sound control.
I hosted a Customer Appreciation Dance Party at the River House venue in RiverTown back in November of 2019. About 75 friends and family enjoyed my home-cooked barbeque ribs and fixin’s, desserts (including my famous Rum Cake), a DJ and dancing. Several friends and family members helped me set up and keep the food flowing. The venue has a refrigerator, microwave, and plenty of tables to set up for dining. We pulled all of the lounge seating to the back of the room to create a dance floor and guests, including my fellow Rivertown Dancers, led by instructor Tony Paolucci got many of the other guests up to dance the night away! I myself lasted on the dance floor only a short while, exhausted from days of cooking and preparation. Next time I’m calling the caterer!
Now that things are starting to happen pretty fast, I’m trying to stop by the house at least once a week to keep up with the construction progress. This tour of the inside framing is followed up by a video message I sent to my builder after discovering an error in the front entry where I had paid them $150 to eliminate the closet, (Remember my first meeting with Brian where he made me initial all changes? This was one of them.) It took weeks to get the closet removed, and that didn’t happen until they had already installed the outlets and light switches in the wrong place in the foyer. Just one of the frustrations of building from scratch with a large builder— Communication is not always the best. AND THEY DON’T LIKE CHANGES! — Even if planned from the beginning!
