We've Got Dirt!! And Cement, too!!

We drove out to our 'dirt' today and discoverd that they've started work! We now have a foundation. Cool!

It's really nice to be able to see where our house sits on the lot. We got a site plan when we signed the contract, but it's so much easier to visualize it when there's something physically there. We've got a decent sized yard, both front and back.

We've also had a bit of a hard time getting information from the builder's agent. First the builder was away, then the agent was away, and the combination didn't work well for having questions answered. Hopefully now that both are back we'll get answers in a timely manner. We're running out of time when we can make changes for 'free'. (After a certain amount of time there is a charge for inquiries on change orders. It makes sense - they have to keep to a schedule and if there are a lot of changes the schedule gets pushed back. Not to mention that materials have to be ordered and/or returned.)

We're hoping to have our 'design' meeting this Friday. That's where we will choose flooring, cabinet knobs and pulls, lighting fixtures, etc. We're having a blast with it all!
