I met with our GC today at my office. I’m hopeful that something was accomplished and that we’re on the same page however he didn’t take any notes and said a few times that “we’ll figure it out when we get to it” and that he’ll “give us plenty of time” with regards to advance notice in making decisions/selections. He didn’t stay very long, he said that he had another commitment. He also couldn’t give me any sort of schedule or timeline, however I did give him a copy of the plans which Julie and I had marked up. We shall see but I’m not feeling too good about it, just skeptical and disappointed – really wish that I could have discussed everything in more detail and not felt like I was under a time constraint or that we were such a bother. Confused is probably also an accurate feeling, maybe I’m overreacting and this is how it’s handled with residential construction – but I sort of feel like we’re being held hostage.
As for my concerns with the depth of the grading, he said that it was fine, still doesn’t make sense to me but then again I’ve never built a house before. Guess that I’ll be doing some research on Renovator’s Place and Fine Homebuilding. And thankfully I have a lot of wood to split, great way to take out my frustrations.
