The salesperson for my house (it’s weird that I basically bought my house like out of a mall, right? Like, not from a person but from a company that has a salesperson?) says it’s her instinct that it’s not going to be done on it’s original completion date.
Apparently we’re in something of a super duper build party on the Front Range right now. There aren’t enough people who know how to do certain things, like … um, build houses. I don’t know, I’m not one of those people so that’s as granular as I can get. The deal is, framing, then roofing, then windows and exterior, then plumbing and electrical, then drywall and finishing.
I know that seems like a lot, but…
Doesn’t it kind of look done? Right??
No, obviously not done. I’m sure there are nails laying around, and I would probably get a lot of splinters, but … it’s so close! It’s an actual structure. It’s no longer a hole in the ground. Those are my windows! I mean, does a window really need glass? Technically? (Google says yes: “an opening in the wall or roof of a building or vehicle that is fitted with glass or other transparent material in a frame to admit light or air and allow people to see out”. I call bullshit.)
All I’m saying is that the original proposed completion date is 70 whole days away. It’s only been 78 days since I signed the contract in the first place, and definitely fewer than 70 since they broke ground. In 70 days this will be a livable structure. Will it have the floors and stuff I picked out? Perhaps not, but, you know. Simplicity is good.
Basically, I’m planning on moving in in 70 days whether they like it or not.
