We got to sit down with the SR, PM, and I believe another PM that was just observing. It took approximately 2 hours from start to finish. Our PM Kevin has many years of experience building homes under his belt and and we feel confident things will go well once we get started.
To prepare myself I took all of my questions and some other items from other bloggers that I thought might be important for us to ask about our home and combined them into a simple document I brought with me.
The first item we covered was the placement of the house on the lot. This was all shown on the APEX survey. This is where our concerns began. Our home is going to be very close to the neighbor. It's like 15 feet, with a slightly closer set in one corner of the home. The reason we're so close, I believe, is because of the additional driveway and lot grading issues.
After covering where all the utilities will come into the house we moved onto the basic house materials and option selections. This went pretty smoothly as I know what we selected by heart! The documents didn't have the most recent selections and were missing only 1 item that we'll have to submit one more change order.
We're set to break ground Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday May 21 - 23, depending on conditions. The approximate walk through will be scheduled between August 6 - 8. We're beginning to get very excited!
