The expression “jumping through hoops” definitely comes into play when you have a homeowners association that is very strict, and as much as they are a pain (color of house, color of roof, samples of roof tile, sample of stone, color of windows, height of house must be below 35 ft, no more than two doors of any amount of garages facing street, must be at least 45 ft from curb, house must be at least 3,500 sq ft, landscape plan with plants used and their size, as they must meet the required size, along with how many outdoor lights and pictures of the size and style, what type of ground cover, what color and type of rock, grass and mulch must show samples, where will the rainwater flow and if they don’t agree, a re-graded plan etc., etc., etc., etc.)
Now remember this is not the bank, this is just the homeowners association. I guess they are there for a reason, but when you are on the hoop-jumping end, it’s hard to not take it personally, but as the saying goes “whatever”. I would have liked to have broken ground at the end of 2006, but that was not to be, but it looks as though it will be (bite your tongue) the middle of Feb, 2007. We have booked the concrete guys for 19 Feb 2007, I hope that I don’t have to eat my words this time, because I am not very hungry at the moment; I kind of lost my appetite.
