Hi All - just wanted to give an update here now that I actually have something to report. I've been waiting for a LONG time now to start construction. I originally signed my contract in February with an expected closing date somewhere between Aug-Oct. A few things have happened to push that out a bit:
-I was the first to sign, so they had to sell the remaining 4 units. They still have one to sell but are moving forward with construction any way.
-My county apparently updated their fire code standards and Ryan had to revise them, submit them for review and submit them again for final approval. We're good to go now.
I have my pre-construction meeting scheduled for Wednesday of this week so I will report back with some more information then. From what I understand we're only a month behind - I've been told it should be completed in November. I work only a few miles from the new place so expect a lot of construction pics :)
A few bits of information that may help people currently starting the process that we just recently learned:
-If you have a gas range - they will probably not let you put a microwave above it. Apparently there is a certain clearance required above a gas range. They are putting a hood in and said that I can install a microwave on my own.
-No comfort height toilets in a tiny powder room. I tried to put comfort height thrones in all bathrooms (I'm 6'4") but again, code prevents them from doing this.
That's all I've got for now.
