We finally had our pre-construction meeting this week. It lasted about an hour and half, my husband loves to chat, lol. It was great getting to meet our project manager. He seems really big on following up on the details. Not all my questions were able to be answered at this stage, since we are still have some time before we break ground. I will post the answers I got next week sometime. We got a new estimated start date of 2/9, which could change depending on how long the county takes on approving our permits. Which would give us a closing date in early May. I prefer to close at the end of a month to be able to skip the first month having a mortgage payment, but we will see. I did find out where the electrical and cables boxes go the lot can't be answered because the power company can put them wherever and don't tell you beforehand. O well it's not like if we knew we could change the location anyways. I did forgot about one thing at our meeting that we didn't go over, our red flag for the tile floor in the master shower. I had a list with me but my husband was holding it, a lot of good that did, my list in his hands, lol. I think that's the only thing we missed going over but I will be sure to bring it up later.
I'm still happy with the delay at this stage, but I'm sure that will change once I move back in with my parents during the build. 4 months of living in a house totaling 6 adults, 1 kid, 4 dogs, 1 cat, and a talking parrot, sounds like fun. :) but very thankful.
We blogged about the building process of our house to document it for ourselves and to help others. Our house is finished and we have moved in and we love our home. Building a house isn't a process that goes perfectly, no matter what builder you pick, and this is our story. Every problem we had during the building process has been made right by Ryan homes. This isn't complaint blog, its how we felt at the time of our post during the building process.
