It has been awhile but...

Hello everyone,

It has been quite awhile since I have posted an update but I wanted to drop in and give you a quick one at least until I have more to report.  So as you know we were waiting on permits which took a VERY long time to come in but finally did.  We scheduled our preconstruction meeting which took place last week and tomorrow we are scheduled to break ground, yes I said it break ground.  I have not posted anything because I didn't want to jinx myself by getting to excited but let’s hope it happens tomorrow.  The preconstruction meeting was very interesting and informative.  Our PM is very direct which I can appreciate but he made it crystal clear at the top of our meeting that he doesn’t believe in custom homes and Ryan homes delivers a product so he wouldn’t be entertaining any custom requests...basically he issued a blanket NO upfront.  I have to admit that I was not happy to hear this given all of the feedback I have been getting from you all about things you have changed as the process moves along.  I didn’t have that much that I wanted changed at the time of our meeting so I didn’t have any objections.  He also instructed me not to visit the inside of the dwelling without him being present or he would call the police on me...Really?  Really?  He asked that we give him a 48 hour heads up and he would be more than happy to walk us through but also added not to make it a weekly habit.  What do you all think about my meeting?
