We had our pre-drywall walkthrough this afternoon...they began putting the insulation in today also. The walkthrough was pretty interesting. We did not have our own inspector, but we did have my dad and Gary's stepdad, who both are pretty knowledgeable and were able to ask good questions. My dad did notice that there was a small slit in between the morning room ceiling and the "rest of the house" where you could see the daylight...that is going to get patched up tomorrow morning. The basement had been poured since we snuck in on Saturday, so it was really neat to go down there and see it. Our garage is apparently a little bit behind schedule due to weather and drying out, but that's okay--I'd rather it be done well than done quickly.
Also we our getting a new project manager. Our current one is switching areas with another guy who managed about 30 minutes away from us. He was there also today for the walkthrough so we got to meet him and it was nice to have two different PMs there to ask questions. The new guy seems pretty nice and very knowledgeable so I'm sure we won't have any problems with him.
Anyone else who has the cherry bordeaux cabinets from timberlake------When we selected those, we were told that the knobs automatically had to come with the cabinets (extra $200). Today, our PM suggested that we may not want to have the knobs actually installed...he said if they install them and then we decide to get hardware on our own, it would be difficult to replace them because of the holes that they drill. He said we can leave them off for now and then see how they look without them or see if we want something else, they will install them at a later date (even after we close) if we decide we want them. What does everyone think about this? I've only seen the cabinets/knobs in a sample version but I didn't think there was anything bad about the knobs...they seem sturdy and they're not unattractive. As of right now they're keeping them off but I just want to see if anyone else has opinions?
