How much wood could a woodchuck chuck?

A whole lot if it's on our lot.

That's right, we have wood! Our lumber arrived earlier than expected and the framing will start soon!

Metal Trash Bin On Our Lot

A few things have happened since our last post. 

Lets skip over some of the details and start with the fact there is a metal trash bin on our lot. So you know what that means, ground has been broken. However we still are not out of the woods completely because we have not even received our approval yet. It's hard to be excited about the fact they have started our house since they have not even approved the loan. While I'm optimistic it'll happen, you never know. 

And because of this whole NVR waiting process, we have decided to reach out to Sun Trust. We submitted the application on Friday and the VP of the loan department is handling this personally. We expect an answer early next week. 

Nonetheless, our PM called us on Friday to let us know the foundation was done, and that the slab and plumbing will be done next week. 

It's again a bitter sweet moment because we have to be out of town for five days next week so we will miss some of the work being done.

Two weeks have passed and...

Two weeks have passed since our last post and still have not heard back from NVR. What we have heard is we are to have our pre construction meeting this week. I hope that this is a sign we are close to a resolution on the financing. As they typically say, no news is good news. I'm just hoping this is the case. 

What is good about not having a decision made is I have not been pouring over the floor plan everyday. But I think that will soon change once we do get the go ahead. Actually, I think I will go pick up the documents now in preparation for the pre construction meeting. I know, sick. But I have to be ready for when the call does come

Power to the floor plan!!!
