I have started the "wish list" of features that we want in our O-B house. I would like to break ground next spring if possible. Love the website and book. Looking forward to many discussions.

Wow, I have been so impressed with our framers. They work 6-7 days a week, and they are there every day working hard! I am actually finding it a little difficult to keep up with them on planning the next steps.

 

Windows – we probably put this off too long. When we finally called to place the order they said they could have them done in 2-3 weeks, but could not install until Dec 7, that was not going to work for us. We called another company that could install as soon as the windows are complete, and we are about to place the order.

 

Electrical – The guy we picked for electrical is a family run business and he is currently working another project and then will be on to ours, we will have to touch base with him again soon, to make sure it won’t be too far away.

 

Plumbing – Contacted our plumber and told him we will probably be needing him out next week.

 

HVAC – We have met with 3 companies so far, one guy was a total salesman, telling us we “needed” a better system that was 2x over the price of the other guy. And it included electric vents that close in one room if another room needs cooled…. Ummmm we are on a budget I don’t think we NEED that!

 

So, planning the design of the house has been extra difficult with 4 people involved, but we are getting there one debate at a time! Everyone has something that is extra important to them, so we are trying to accommodate while staying in the budget. One item that was a must on my husband’s list was a glass garage patio door. We finally worked something out that was in the budget for that, and got it ordered. That won’t be installed until January.

 

Next steps: finalize the insulation plan, cabinet selections, siding selection, and roof color. Get another drywall quote.
