Our sub-contractor is still working on another house. (We knew we were in line behind that one.) We are in a waiting period right now. We did manage to do a couple more things on our pre-building list.
First I ordered a book of building codes. We talked to the local building code enforcer and found out what book he used. We opted to order a new version that covered gray water systems which we plan to have. I ordered a used copy from Amazon which arrived this past week. It is a bit overwhelming, but this will be easier than constantly looking things up online.
Second we met with someone from the power company to see where the power line would need to run. This allows us to know where the panel box will need to go in the house.
Progress is slow, but at least we are still moving forward.
