Today we had our pre-construction meeting. First we met with the project manager who seems like a really nice guy. He was the project manager on a friend’s house and they have nothing but nice things to say about him so I think we are in good hands. We reviewed our selections for accuracy and then walked our build site. The surveyors had just finished staking the site; it was really exciting to the outline of our future home on the site.
Next we meet with the electrician who also seems like a nice guy and is definitely very patient. This was the most stressful part of the day because we had to make decision on the spot. In the scope of building a house these decision are quite small but you just want to make the right decision all the time.
Total time at the meeting – two and a half hours. We did ask a lot of questions.
Apparently our future neighbors have a large dog. I say "apparently" because we didn’t see the dog just his calling cards.
