The Pre-Construction meeting has come and gone. It was a bit over an hour and it was tough keeping my 18 month girl occupied. The meeting went well and were able to meet the guy who is responsible for building our house. We basically went over each room and what option that we chose to go with. I asked about when our estimated ground breaking date. In my mind I was thinking he would say next week but much to my amazement he said depending on the weather he can start as early as this WEDNESDAY. So now I just got to look up at the sky and say please be good and be sunny! Crossing fingers and toes. He also mentioned that our closing date would be on June 24th which is good!!!! Now all I have to do is notify my landlord and let them know that we will be out of here by the end of June which allows us time to move instead of scrambling it all in one to two days during the weekend.
Due to reading some of the blog I did pick up on the suggestion of putting a blocking of wood over the fireplace mount and did ask the manager about that. He did seem a bit surprised that I brought it up but after thinking for a bit he did say it would be a good idea and if it was him building a house he would add it in. Well thank goodness that I do the research it would be helpful if he brought it up instead of me saying ohhh by the way I heard blah blah blah lol. One other thing that I was happy with was that with the recess lights I thought we would be getting 5 maybe 6 recess lights but nope we are getting 7 which was I was quite pleased with. More recess lights the better.
It was raining really hard today and the lot was super wet and muddy so we were not able to walk on the lot so hopefully the next sunny day I can walk on the lot and get some pictures.
