I'll keep you posted.

That’s great Goin’2DE, glad all went well. Yes, done right the first time is better and less inconvenient and messy. And so the process of actually moving commences…good luck with that.

Does anyone use Verizon wifi on their laptop and does it work well in the Delaware area? Thinking of buying into a two year contract but would like to know first if it has any problems out that way before committing.

Having never built a home before, I'm a little confused. Shouldn't a PRE-drywall inspection be an inspection without any drywall on the wall? I would think you'd want to check the framing, see the plumbing, vent and exhaust pipes, the HVAC system connections, the insulation, the wiring, etc, before the drywall covers it all up. That's the stuff I want to see before it gets closed in. Can someone set me straight? Thanks.

You are correct. This was the pre-drywall inspection and that's the reason hubby noticed the fan wiring/switch had not been done. Yes, HVAC ducts/connections, plumbing, vents, wiring, cable outlets, outdoor hose bibs, and outlets,etc. were all in place. Framing structure is sound and the roof is done.

You're getting that PEX tubing for plumbing (the red and blue individual lines). I do like that system.

I'm glad it went well for you. Did you get a chance to meet any future neighbors?

Yes we are getting that plumbing system. We've heard it's a good system. Combined with the tankless hot water system, it should be quite a nice plan. As you know, Roesville is known for it's "green" energy solutions.
We've met a couple of our new neighbors. I've been in email contact regularly with one couple. They've been very helpful with ideas and suggestions for utilities, shopping, etc. We will also be installing a well for irrigation purposes shortly after we move in. Several in the community have already done so. Seems the water rates in DE are a bit high, so watering the lawn could get costly without a well.

A "sticky" thread is one that is anchored to the top of a forum so that regardless of the activities in the other threads, the "sticky" thread always remains on top. The first two threads in this Delaware forum are "stickies".

OK, I guess.

LOL…”sticky thread”…the reference being that the thread contains enough important information that it should be easily located so that everyone has access to it. From that perspective I would have to agree with Raven302.

Does anyone know how good the reception is for Verizon wifi in the Delaware area? I would hate to commit to a two year wifi contract only to find out later, if I decide to move there, that the reception sucks.

Oh…yes finally received my mortgage pre-approval letter which should be helpful when it comes time for negotiations and I’m putting together a general questions list to ask when I go visit in September. Knowing that aside from the ones I already have, I’ll probably forget to ask some important question so I’m now opened to all suggestions on what to ask the sales reps. If it helps any for questions concerning personal living style…although I love animals, I’m allergic to cats, dogs and horses…so I needn’t concern myself with pet areas. Thanks to all in advance.
