On another note, everything should resume tomorrow after a few week delay due to soil testing and engineer review of our soil. Ryan is going to drill pylons into bedroom and then pour the spread footer on top of these pylons. We asked for a copy of the engineers report and they are gladly providing us with one, but we're happy with this solution and feel the foundation is going to be very solid and Ryan has done the right thing by eating the entire unexpected cost.
Here are the pictures of the model & I included one picture of a Quartz counter top we found and really like. We got the standard counter top from Ryan because we decided we would be able to find a better price after we close and we would have more choices to selected from. We were also leaning heavily toward quartz because of its durability and the fact that you don't have to seal it. Does anyone have quartz? What do you think?
