Pre-Construction Meeting!

Today is our Pre-Construction Meeting! I can't believe it! I have composed a list of questions I plan to ask when we meet our Project Manager. I will post the answers I receive under the questions. 

  • If there is shelving in the laundry room can we not install it? (We have elected for a 2nd hook up for our washer & dryer in the basement so we will not need the shelves above the washer & dryer upstairs as we saw in the model home.)
    • Yes not a problem.
  • Can we purchase our own sink and under mount it with the upgraded laminate we chose?
    • No
  • Where is the location of the thermostat?
    • By the bottom of the stairs.
  • Can we review light switch locations?
    • Did not feel it was necessary to ask.
  • Are there going to be any windows in the basement?
    • Yes, 1 window.
  • Where will the 2nd laundry hook up be located in the basement?
    • Very left front corner of basement, near sump pump and furnace.
  • Where will the basement rough in be located?
    • Very back right corner of basement.
  • Can we create an under the stairs closet?
    • Didn't ask, figure we can do this later.
  • Can we insulate the garage?
    • Yes, if you want to pay extra. 
  • Can we widen the driveway & add a driveway pad next to the house?
    • Better question for concrete company.
  • Will there be a concrete pad poured in front of our walk out basement doors?
    • No.
