Did the same thing two weeks ago. Meeting with the "designer" was yesterday. Race you to the finish line? :-)

I'm there with you all! Signed contract on February 18th, and made design choices on March 11th. We are in Phase 1 of the development with only about 5 families currently living there. Construction is set to start in May for us with closing currently scheduled for August 31.
I'll also add that we did not go overboard with our design choices, and we still have a $3K credit to use. Our pre-construction meeting is supposed to happen in April, and at that time we will use our credit to add extra cable lines and outlets.
Congrats to you both!!

Congratulations!!! I did the exact same thing a couple of weeks ago. Signed a contract and paid my deposit. Just had my design appointment this past Thursday. I'm using the captive lender to take advantage of the closing cost assistance they provide. I can't wait for them to begin construction. I keep driving by the lot hoping that they've at least broken ground but, so far, nothing. They say they are aiming for a late July closing, but I have a feeling it may push into August because that would seem kind of fast at this point.

Our home is well under construction and the drywall was just installed last week. Congrats to you all!
They are drywalling my new place as well! I stopped by Saturday and they looked to be almost done already. Brick was delivered and sitting out front. So bricking starts this week!!!

I cannot wait until I'm at that point. Foundation has not been poured yet for ours. We are moving into our rain season, so I'm sure that may have a delay on things.
This process is like being a kid again waiting for Christmas!
