Had our pre-con meeting yesterday. On the way over my wife and I are talking, but had the radio on too, just a lower volume. We were stopped at a light just before turning on to the main road leading to the development, when I heard the intro to a very appropriate song. I started to turn the volume up so my wife would notice, and she kinda flipped out. The song was Our House, By Madness! It was so cool to just listen to this as we pulled into the development. We then went into the model home, met our PM Bill, and started going through our selections and timeline. Bill seemed like a great guy, and answered all of our questions. He told us our permit from the township is ready and just needs to be picked up, after this work can begin. It looks like the hole for our foundation will be dug late next week, and our completion date is sometime around late October early November. We were hoping for earlier than this, but at least it won't be the middle of winter.
Took a look at the site map of the development, and they're running out of lots quickly, so glad we got in early.
I'm planing on taking a picture of our house from the same spot as often as I can, and then maybe do a time-lapse movie of the whole thing. Here's the first pic.
