All went well today at the pre-construction meeting. It took about 90 minutes to go over everything. My PM seems like a pretty thorough, Get-Ir-Done type of guy. One slight hiccup though, my last change order didn't make it into the plans. Luckily, I save everything so I provided a copy of it to my SR like "Here it is, I signed it and delivered to you, SR". Quick fix.
We'll be breaking ground on 11/14 and our ETA for completion is 2/21/2013. Not bad.
Our lot was staked and was much bigger than I expected. Since our home backs up to a natural lake our backyard will only be cleared back by about 25ft. Anything past it falls into what is called an Environmentally Protected Area designed to keep the lake in its natural state. With that though, we gained a decent amount of buffer space to the left of the house where the drainage easement is. For us, it just means that if we build a fence we must make sure that runoff can flow freely down to the lake & for hubby, more grass to cut
I'm praying that everything goes smoothly & stays on track. So far, I'm pleased with the experience.
