Stopped by the house again and surprisingly they even worked on a day when it rained. They took off the foundation forms so the framing is ready to go up (will probably start happening Monday) but I'm a little concerned about a crack that spans the width of 1/2 the house. 

 

Is this something I should be concerened with or is it pretty normal? I stopped by 7 other houses under construction and 3 of them also had the crack (in the exact same place) while 4 of them did not.

They will probably have someone look at it to make sure it is ok before moving forward and the city will have to expect it.

Wow, awesome thread. This really has me wanting a new home.

If you don't mind me asking, what is the square footage? You have any pictures of the layout?

Thanks, it's definitely exciting! :smileyvery-happy: The house is 2,889 sq ft.

We did the optional den with french doors and the optional exterior door to the Teen Room. That  portion of the house (Teen Room, Bedroom 3) will be used as a home office.

Yea looove the layout, its what really sold us on the house even though it's a bit farther out than I wanted to be. Having the home office separated from the rest of the house will be awesome, then my wife loves the pantry, it's huge (55 SQ FT!). Plus the master bedroom with the double doors is really nice, even has a little foyer area before you actually enter the bedroom. Only thing I would of liked is a separate laundry room, i don't like that it's basically a hallway from the garage into the house. Bigger walk in closets would have been nice too, especially since I get the smaller of the two of course. :smileytongue:

I love the layout. I'm curious on the optional audio/visual entertainment center piece. Do you have the option of pulling fiber optic into the house and dropping into this space? What does this option entail?

We didn't get the optional audio/video built-in because I'm not a fan of built-ins but you can have all sort of cables dropped in for any setup you want, it's all done when you go to the design center and pick all your options. You meet specifically with an audio/video person and they go over all the options.

Fiber is either terminated at the curb or on the side of the house. Never heard of it being dropped inside of the house.
