The builder E-mailed me yesterday to ask if we were coming out to the lot, that he had some things to go over. As it turned out, I had to drive up to Rising Sun in Cecil County this morning, so decided to swing by Chestertown on my way back.
I met the builder at about 10:30. The framing crew was still hard at work. The roof trusses were nearly completed, and they had put sheathing over most of the bedroom wing.
The builder wanted to get our choices for the color and pattern of the stamped concrete that we are using for the courtyard. They need to get the porch floors in so they can work on the porch framing. He gave me some brochures to take along and asked for our decisions by the end of the week.
We also talked about using stamped concrete for the side and front porches, which was not part of the original spec. He gave us an estimate, which was reasonable since the crew would already be out there for the courtyard. My wife also had some questions about the grilles for the windows and French doors, so I called her at work and let them hash it out.
By coincidence, this was the hottest day of the year so far, in the high 90’s.
