We had our pre-construction meeting today! Our lot has the equipment on it to start digging
and they should begin early next week. They told us all about the house, the selections,
the schedule for building, plotted the house out on the blueprints AND took us to the
lot to see all the stakes. The house, property line, garage (we have a side garage),
morning room, driveway, etc. were all staked out for us to see. It is much easier to visualize
it now that the mounds of snow and ice are gone! We had them move the thermostat, outlet,
exhaust fan in the bathroom and a few other minor things. I have to say we are disappointed that the backyard is smaller than when we measured with our Sales Rep, but our front yard is big because of the side garage and we have a corner lot so we have a decent side yard. The bonus is that "street" they paved next to us that they are not expanding the neighborhood into, the boys can ride bikes there, play basketball, etc. So.....fingers crossed for good weather next week.
Our PM, Ryan, said that our lumber pack will arrive June 5. We are going to be REALLY
close to making it into the house before school starts...he said once the roof is on they
will work as hard as they can to get us in. Here is a picture of the house plotted on the lot -
no other good photo ops today!
