I have my soil erosion, driveway, well, and septic permit paperwork turned in. Once I get that back, I can apply for my building permit. We have been meeting with contractors, and we are starting to make our top pics. Once you actually meet contractors, you get a lot more comfortable (or less comfortable) with their bids. I am convinced that we have found our ICF and concrete guy, which is probably the single most important contractor for our project. We have not made a decision on framers yet.

One of the biggest hassles so far has been getting truss quotes. We asked seven truss companies to quote our floor and roof trusses. So far, 45 days later, we only have one quote in hand. We want to have the roof trussed to save money and control costs. Our roof isn't that complicated, but apparently the truss companies make less money on our type roofs so they are not that motivated to get it done. Our roof trusses have "bonus space" anywhere that there is at least 8" of ceiling room.

We are also meeting with three banks to see which one will work out best for us. They all have different ways that they handle construction draws, and different interest rates.

Here's a few lot pics while we wait for more exciting news.
