Avalon Building and Blogging

Can I really care this much about flooring and faucets? Apparently, I can.

Well, our PM is already right.

Are these trucks for us? (She asked hopefully...)

Are these trucks for us? (She asked hopefully…)

When we had our pre-construction meeting, our PM asked where we currently live. When we told him that we live in a neighborhood about a mile away from where we are building, he looked at us very seriously and said, “I know it will be hard, but try not to come by the lot every day. You will only be disappointed if there is no visible progress that day.”

He was right.

The lot was supposed to be cleared yesterday, and I stopped by the lot yesterday and today on my way home from work. My heart was beating quicker as I made each turn or slow loop around the neighborhood’s traffic circles before turning onto our new street. And then, my heart sank when I could make out in the distance the snapped-off tree that is just behind our “SOLD” sign. Drat. Not cleared. I know that’s ok, that it will happen soon, but I was so excited to check and see if the trees were gone.

Point made, PM. I won’t check every day. (At least, I won’t check every day once the lot is cleared. And the hole is dug. And the footers go up. Oh, and I’ll stop checking every day once it’s framed. Ok, I’ll stop checking after the siding is up… Promise.)

    You live so close, that would drive me insane. At least we currently live about a half a hour away so I won’t be inspired more than once a week to drop by. Just remember if this process has started you are on three months away from your dream home.
