On Monday evening we met with our SR, PM and assistant PM for our pre-construction meeting. Our PM has been doing his job for 12 years which eases some of the anxiety I have in general about the process. He was thorough and welcomed questions and concerns. We reviewed our options, upgrades and color selections and discussed the locations of cable/phone, security and electrical options (ceiling fan rough-in and outlet locations). We discussed our timeline and how we would communicate throughout the process. Our lumber is scheduled to arrive on March 7th and our pre-drywall is tentatively scheduled for March 14th. The home should be complete during the week of Memorial Day and closing will be June 1st. PM plans to update us weekly or bi-weekly depending on what is happening at the house. He welcomed us to visit daily, which we plan to do. Lastly, we walked the around our giant hole and talked about draining, swales and grading. When we left I was a big ball of nervous excitement!
The next day, Tuesday, we saw this:
|They are pouring our footers!|
And on Wednesday we admired this:
There was no action on lot 403 today. We assume they'll allow the footers to cure for a few days before they place the forms for the foundation. So hard to believe there will be a house here in a matter of weeks!
P.S. We just passed the 100 day mark on our countdown! 98 more to go!
