Waterproofing inspection now passed, basement slab passed, and garage slab scheduled for April 2nd... Apparently they need to installed an "Engineered slab" and that takes longer to prepare.
Waterpoofing - FAIL - NO DRAIN TILE EXPOSED
BASEMENT- FAIL - PLASTIC NEEDS SPREAD OUT- WIND BLEW OFF-GARAGE NEED ENGINEERING -OVER 2FT DEEP
Footers are finally in and walls poured.
Tomorrow will be day 19 and the waterproofing/slab inspections are scheduled. Hopefully all goes well. Obviously I will check it out first thing in the morning. I hate being away when progress is going on finally.
3.12.12 This plan change is rather extensive, changing all sheets. This will be processed as a major plan change. The fee for a major plan change is half of the previously paid fee. We will let you know how much that is when it is ready to pick up. I need revised truss engineering and a revised energy analysis in duplicate to go with these plans.
3.16.12 Apparently the home is supposed to have brick all around but the plans call for brick front only. Submit revised revisions. Called Mellanie
3.16.12 Revised plans showing additional brick; total plan changeIn the end it cost them $550 anyway, and a week of progress. PM called me Friday morning and told me the whole deal and said they are on schedule to pour on Monday if they get the permit Friday (they did). Secretly I'm sort of happy though. One, it proved I am on top of this build and they know I am going to check and catch every little thing -- and two, I would have been out of town during framing which really bugged me, but now I will be home.
