Hello bloggers! Its been awhile since I've posted but there really hasn't been much to report. We are in a holding pattern on the start of construction but it is entirely by choice. Our SR called and said that all of our plans got the approvals that we needed and that they could actually start our home earlier than anticipated. While we were excited to have the approvals, an earlier start would mean an earlier settlement which doesn't fall in line with our budget to get the last of the downpayment that we will need to bring to us for closing. So we decided to wait and go with the original schedule...although reading everyone's posts about the progress on their houses I almost wish that we had!
On another note, I am a little sad because I decided that I want a wine refrigerator in my island. Of course, I decided this after the changes and final options were put in...wonder how much its going to cost to get them to leave an open space in the island and to put an electrical outlet on the inside? Guess I will have to wait to talk to my PM about this...like other bloggers I am not really getting any more answers from him other than "we can talk to your PM about this during the pre-construction meeting." Well, if we talk about all the things that he suggested I talk to the PM about then I might rival Rick and Nadase's 6hr meeting time. After all, our meeting to select colors for the house was over 2hrs. =)
