|Love this idea. Need to find these mirrors.|

Tomorrow, tomorrow- it's only a day away!
Soooo....tomorrow is the infamous pre-construction meeting! I'm excited to be at this point because I know there is about to be a lot more action in the near future. I can only hope and pray that the PM plans to break ground the day after our meeting- that would be super, but I learned not to hold my breath a long time ago. Anyways, I have a list of questions that I plan on asking. Mainly about the location of things i.e. the furnace, HWH, hose bibs. I also have concerns about the grading of the property because the back of our property has about a 5 ft drop off and then our lot extends about another 40 ft beyond that. I'm curious to see how this is going to play out because the reason we chose the lot was because it was the largest one available and I want all the space to be useable. I also had a few requests for the master bath. I really love the accent tile that we picked and I'd like to incorporate as much as possible, so I was thinking about requesting 2 rows instead of just the one. Maybe one in the original spot, and one a little lower...I don't know, but it was a thought so I want to see if it could be an option. I also would rather not have the mirror hung in the master BR. I found a picture on pinterest (shocking, right?) of a rectangular mirror above each sink- picture below. I really like this idea. Maybe tomorrow after I get some answers I will post about my questions and the answers provided by the PM---I'm ready for some progress and I really hope that the plan is to break ground this week because Dustin is getting anxious and when that happens it kinda comes across as being moody, so basically he is getting on my nerves. Don't get me wrong, I'm on the anxious side myself, but not in a moody way---not at the current time anyways. Speaking of being moody...So tomorrow will be 2 weeks since our LP at NVR told me that our file had been submitted to underwriting. I emailed her last Tuesday to check the status, but there hadn't been a decision made at that point. I called around 3 today and left a voicemail, so I'm expecting a call back tomorrow. My message was very nice because I know last week was a holiday and I truly understand that can cause delays, but we submitted our application on 5/24 and today is 7/8 and even though we are moving forward with the process I would still like an official approval. I just don't understand as to why the process takes so long with NVR. This is not me saying anything bad whatsoever about our LO or LP because they have both been so great, I mean really great. They return my calls and answer my emails and have been just as nice as can be...but what's the deal? Anyways.....oh, I forgot to mention that I went by the lot on the way home today and it wasn't staked out. Shouldn't it be staked out for the Pre-con meeting? Maybe I'm wrong.
