The waterproofing has been completed, and preparations are being made for the basement and garage to be poured. There's a tiny pile of lumber next to the lot which almost certainly belongs to our house, but it's barely enough for a dog kennel. It's been raining most of the day, so everything's muddy and gross. It's possible they will do some backfilling tomorrow, but with rain expected on Saturday it's hard to be sure.
I spoke to the NVR mortgage guy today. He says the appraisal was ordered a few days ago and we can expect the results in about three weeks. Of all the things associated with this project, it is the appraisal that has us most concerned. Our house is being built in a fairly rural area, it's the first in the development (apart from the model home), it has quite a few options and there are very few comparables to help the appraiser arrive at a number. So we are at the appraiser's mercy, basically.
Anyway, what's with all this effing rain?
