The upside of the groundhog getting it right for a change.

You know the saying, "Even a blind squirrel finds an acorn now and again", well even Punxsutawney
Phil gets it right now and again.  And the upside of that is construction season starts earlier than they planned.

I will admit, I panicked a bit when we got the email from our temporary Sales Rep Phil (our regular Sales Rep Brittany is out on maternity leave, congrats by the way if you see this) that they wanted to schedule our pre-construction meeting for the second week of March so they could begin breaking ground the week of the 13th.  A full month ahead of schedule.

Yes, I panicked because we had not made a lot of head way in getting our current house sale ready.  Well after thinking about it, I realized that moving up construction really did not alter our sale time table because we had faced the prospect of being homeless for more than a month if our house sells fast.  So this may work out anyway.

So, to see how things looked at the new neighborhood, I swung by today to take a look....

Here is the first house on our street, last time I was here it was only a foundation...
They are going to have some nice open space to the one side, right next to the final resting place of the Reel family.

Here is our lot all staked out...

And here is the house that will be two doors down from us, right at the end of the cul-de-sac.

So now to get the flooring replaced, find a painter and rent a storage locker.
