January 2020 Building a Home

2 years ago

Hopefully nobody has already started this thread. I couldn't find one anyway. And I suppose I'm somewhat of a veteran now, so here goes. How is everyone's build going?

We are waiting on a date from the plumber. Meanwhile our builder has not ordered the plumbing fixtures or hired a flooring contractor. Hopefully he will soon, because we're itching to be finished. Also the builder started talking to my husband about the possibility of getting a temporary certificate of occupancy. I don't know about that. He gets paid the remainder of the contract price when the house is livable (substantial completion), but I don't want to agree to any kind of occupancy permit without finished flooring. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.
