After 2 more weeks of no progress being made and no explanation of why, I made an appointment with our sales manager to see if we could get some answers about what was going on and how the delay would effect our closing, locking in our rate, and other variables. We met tonight and finally got the news we've been waiting for. Half of the road is in. Our pre-construction meeting is set for the day before Thanksgiving, and construction will begin the week of November 29th! The delay was due to a combination of issues between the township, paving company, and developer. I feel so much better knowing what was going on and what is planned now.
She insists that even though construction will be beginning more than a month after what was planned, we will still close in February. I'm not sure how that will be, but after reading some of the other blogs, the house does get done pretty quickly. I guess the project managers have goals to meet so that will provide some motivation to get our house done on schedule. Every night that I've been there lately, even as late as 9:00 or 10:00, I've seen contractors in at least one house, so I guess they do work hard to meet the projected deadline.
So after this month of frustration and waiting, it looks like things will finally start to happen. It's about time!
