So, last post had us tentatively starting our house on the 3rd of march, but after exchanging an email with our SR, he said it is probably not going to happen. The Reason: BERKELEY COUNTY 's interpretation of some new code and their reluctance to grant permits for Ryan Trusses. Berkeley county is the only county in 13 states that has not granted permits because of this Truss issue. Now apparently Ryan's architectural department is working with them on fixing this issue.. I must say, I'm starting to get a little annoyed (well, actually pissed off to put it frankly) on the whole issue. They already have a Florence Model framed in our neighborhood, so I don't understand the delay. How can 13 states be fine with Ryan Homes trusses, and Berkeley County isn't? The waiting game continues.

Finally, almost 2 months after signing our purchase agreement, they have put a sold sticker on our lot and staked it. It must be close to breaking ground time. I am hoping next week to see a hole on this lot. They already have basement walls up on our neighbors lot.

Well, it's been a quiet few weeks and there really hasn't been much to report. I did talk with our SR and we are still waiting on permits and our tentative start date in on the 3rd of March. We shall see. They have however started digging for the house next to our lot. We should be next...oh, and they did determine that the house needed to be "Reversed", so that has been messing with my mind a little. I guess I will get used to it.
