Hi All I am new to this forum, and I have really enjoyed reviewing all the projects out there, and hearing of everyone's good and bad experiences through the build process.
We just signed the contract a few weeks ago and are just waiting for the City Permits to be approved.
I would like to get some thoughts on your experiences with the following:
How long did it take from the time you signed the contract to the day the dig began? In my case we just signed the loan docs with the bank/builder mid last week and the permits went to the city about 2.5 weeks ago. Should I keep bugging my sales rep or what is a normal turn around time for the dig to begin? Don't want to be pest with the PB before the build even starts..
Once the dig began, who was your main point of contact for questions, comments and concerns? The designer/Sales rep, or the Scheduler or Super?
Those of you who opted for the PB to do the sprinkler reroute, how did that process go? I am concerned about how they will do it? Do they just start the pool dig and destroy any pipes that are underneath and THEN go back and re install new sprinkler lines?
In my case they will access the back yard from one side of the house (pathway is about 8' wide), since the back yard faces a greenbelt, they can not access through there. Those of you that had similar access points to their build, how much damage did your side and front yard take due to the machinery coming and going? (pics would be great if any of you have them)
Sorry for all the questions, but just as exciting as this process has been and am sure will continue to be so, I am bit nervous of what to expect.
I have included a few pictures of the design, and in my signature I have included the specifics.
