We have a foundation
Our SR sent me this picture yesterday at about 7.pm and I was truly amazed at how far they have come. The foundation is all set and even looks like the walls are coming up. According to our PM this week they will be installing the underground sewer lines and water lines and spraying the foundation with a waterproofing tar that protects the basement from moisture.They will also be installing all the under concrete plumbing as well as the drain tile pipe and sump pump in the basement. They will also be pouring the garage and basement concrete. Starting next week the framing should begin, exciting!!
On to other news, I made another change to the recent change. Our LO gave me another GFE including the $9000 changes and it did not change much. I had expected to see at least a 3k drop in cash outlay but what did I see? The total cash due at settlement just came down by only a few hundreds and the monthly payments were still as high as ever. So you know what, I called up our SR and asked if I could at least add my granite countertops back. She had to check with her manager and two days later the answer was a yes. Thumbs up to my very dynamic SR for putting forward my case to her manager and pleading on my behalf so I could get my "100th" change order through. Hmm I just didn't see the point in making that sacrifice and then still having the mortgage at about the same amount.
