Breaking ground... but no pre-construction meeting...

Weird right?

Due to "scheduling conflicts" we will not be able to have our pre-construction meeting until next week although RH plans to break ground this week. I am not sure how to feel about that. On one hand I do NOT want to be held up anymore, but I am also bothered by going out of order and not having the process explained to be beforehand. Our PM has agreed to meet the hubby on the lot early in the morning to tomorrow to explain what area and trees will be cleared (per our request), although it was explained to us that we had absolutely no control over that. I just want to know that we are all on the same page before construction starts on the largest purchase we have ever made! Slightly frustrated, but hopefully it all works out... Has anyone else experienced this?

WE ARE STARTING!!!! Wooohooooo! Finally! It has been a LONG road but we are getting so close now. So here are a few quick updates about what has been going on.

1. We got an email saying that our appraisal was done. Yay, right? The only problem is the house being appraised wasn't ours! It was actually pretty funny. It was our lot and purchase price but a completely different house. How did that happen?? After a few laughs with our SR a new appraisal was ordered and is still pending. The good news is that the house that was appraised was a smaller and less expensive model and was actually appraised at a higher amount than we are paying for our home. :) We can't wait to see what our home appraises at!

2. We found out the because we switch to the master bath with only the large shower (instead of regular sized shower and separate bath) not only do we get a larger walk-in closet but our bedroom is also 1 sq. ft longer! It feels like a free bonus. :)

3. Yesterday we got a call saying that we are starting ASAP! RH will purchase our lot on Friday and hopefully we can break ground next week! Assuming we can find time to schedule our pre-construction meeting. And don't worry, I am starting my "research" right now to compile a list of questions to ask and things to clarify. Suggestions are welcomed!!!

Guess what we've been doing....

So what's been going on with us? A big fat NOTHING! Our start time has now been moved back from the end of July until end of August/beginning of September. I know they are fast but 60 days??? This is so frustrating. :( Thankfully I have been super busy at school and I am usually too tired at night to think about it... We haven't even had our pre-construction meeting... No start in site....
