We are coming to the home stretch! (And by that I mean the end of the beginning and finally being able to get started.) We received our final house plans from the builder yesterday. It would have been much sooner, but I held that up because I had a bunch of last minute changes. “Hey, can we move the laundry room over here and get a bigger pantry….” Mike, our builder, is the PERFECT contractor for me. He is amazing at taking the ideas in my head and putting them on paper and he is super patient with me about making changes.
Our plans are based on the Donald Gardner plan for the Michaelson house, but we wanted to make quite a few changes. We changed the roof line, extended the study, the bathroom on the left, and the back bedroom, changed the location and sizes of a lot of closets and a few other things. We purchased the original plans here and Mike made the changes once we owned the rights to the plans.
The bank says everything looks good and we should be ready to go with them as early as next week. Our storm water plan revision has been submitted and as long as that gets approved we can FINALLY get our building permit!!!! (It only took a year.)
We will still be waiting on the weather for another month or so, but hopefully in 4-6 weeks (or maybe sooner, depending on the winter weather) we will be breaking ground!!
