Obviously I need a lesson on shooting video! Sorry for chopping off your head, Brian!
Brian and I met for a couple of hours reviewing everything from the construction schedule, our future meetings, and communication, to a detailed review of all of the floor plans. Each change to the plans was initialed and documented in an email in case questions come up later, (as in if Lynn changes her mind again!)
Communication is key during the construction process and Brian let me know that because he currently has about 20 homes under construction in RiverTown alone and hundreds of emails a week, it will sometimes take him a week or so to respond to an email. We agreed that if an email was urgent, we would send a quick text alert so that communication would not be delayed. This preliminary meeting is typically done right after they receive the building permit. My official construction start date was October 15, but they are actually a little ahead of schedule. However, Brian warned me that there would naturally be unavoidable delays due to weather, (and hunting season?), so not to get hung up on any specific closing date. Understood!
Our next formal meeting won’t be until my orientation once we are nearing completion. Then will will do a preliminary walk-through when a punch list will be produced, followed by a final walk-through the day of closing.
