Went over a bunch details with Chris today - he was very accommodating and I believe understands our design wishes very well.
Met with Adam briefly and he was pretty straight forward regarding when our house MIGHT be started -- November 6th is his best guess -- and MIGHT be finished -- best case April, worst case June . . . assuming a November start date. WOOF, this is a long way past the original close date of September 15. BTW, we signed our contract on March 25, 2006.
