We had our pre-construction meeting with our field manager yesterday. Two and a half hours later, we felt pretty confident about the next couple months. We like our manager and appreciate that he seems really detail-oriented.
Construction is supposed to start tomorrow, but with a few feet of snow on the ground and temperatures below 20 degrees, that’s not going to happen. The good news is that even with the delays, we’re still scheduled to close in June. Hooray!
Right now we’re trying to make one last option decision: Close off the first-floor flex-space or leave it open? Yes, it costs more to close it off and add a door. We’ve been thinking that space would be my home office ( / craft room :) ) and so it would be nice to have a door. But now we’re thinking we may eventually want to turn it into a piano room / library or a formal dining room and move my office to the upstairs loft. The flex room is right off the great room, so keeping it open might make the space feel bigger.
