at the end of the day, I think everyone has their own preference. IMO, I think that for the 24-hour list, you are absolutely primarily looking for cosmetic things that could bite you in the ass if...

"Carpet grade stairs" - meaning it's plywood...

You should clarify with them.

Mine are about the same -- they're pure wood. You should maybe ask them if it's 100% oak, or it's just the risers/nosing, etc.

I checked again, I got quoted from 3 builders, all were 9000+.

I would be sceptical about $3000 for oak stairs...likely not all oak. Most builders charge $10k for that.

That sounds feasible - I'm told 2-3 months from your framing walkthrough for the most part.

Let me know how the walkthrough goes! Ours is in two weeks.

The good thing is that this is the last time they can delay you. If they delay again they owe you $150 a day.

That’s basically where Urbandale and HN are at with most of their houses. Framed, but little else. They can’t get windows in fast enough.

It's nice that they are doing that, but it's kind of bold of them to be delaying people this early. It means they've effectively given up their second tentative closing date and can only delay people...
