The O-B Book is such a great resource. I listened to it at least three times through and read the book at least once cover to cover. The other books I received in the "Whole Enchilada" were also very helpful in some of the finer details. Thank you so much. I hope many more owner-builders find your site and experience the same success we have.

We met with Dave yesterday- he gave us the first run of the plans- surprisingly on BIG sheets of paper. I thought the overall idea was okay, but he missed the boat on a few things- we need 3br, not 4, one front door, not 2, and 3 baths, not 2. No problem. Part of the deal is that he will go back to the plans until we love them. We gave him about 12 changes to make to the plan. He should have the next run ready when we get back from Alaska.

A few hours after we left Dave's I get a call from Jason, who has had several epiphanies regarding the plan and wants to review them with me. One was eliminating the slider in the MBr (fine, but only if I get a french door instead- I definitely want porch access from the MBr). The other was the placement of the kitchen. To me, where Dave placed the kitchen is BACKWARDS. Don't ask me to explain why, because I couldn't if I tried. It's backwards. It just is. So we had asked him to flip it around, but then Jason realized that by leaving it BACKWARDS we could open up a wall to the dining room, where there otherwise would have been cabinets. It will be much better that way. So alls well that ends well. I'm going to have to figure out what it is that makes it seem backwards- hopefully changing the placement of the peninsula will help with that. We shall see.

The other thing on my short list is to get the surveyor out to plot the wetlands flag. He won't call me back! So annoyed! This will have to wait until I get back, I suppose. It's a lot easier and cheaper to reuse him; the only other option would be to entirely redo the survey! Oh well, vacation for now, house worries later. All in all, things remain on track.
