Hi,

I have finalized all decisions with Medallion decor centre and waiting for the house to be built. Their decor centre representatives are nice with supportive information provided. However, I have been to the building site several times but nothing is being built. Is it possible for the house to be closed on Mid-March 2012?

Thanks!

Could you post what the builder's closing costs are like? Any info on the price for upgrades like changing the stain of the floors to dark, iron railings would be awesome as well! Congrats on your new home, which model did you buy?

Thank you! I bought the Twickenham model. (12' ceiling) The builder is charging around $5k plus to stain the whole staircase from basement to second floor. It seems too expensive to me and I decided to leave it unfinished. I will find the contractor to stain the staircase after closing. For the iron pickets, I did not check the cost of it but I'm sure it should be very costly to do so by builder. Can you tell me your expected closing date?

GregS,
Good catch! It should be Thread instead of Tread.

mmhassa2,
Sharing questions and answers in this forum is really a great experience. Please feel free to post your questions in this forum. I believe other people are willing to help you as well. It is better to let someone who got your model to give you the best answers.

We recently purchased the Haverhill B model, in phase 5. We have our structural appointment this Tuesday.

Hey mmhassa2, that's awesome, that is a huge house .. lots of stairs, love the look of it, what lot did you select? We selected Hardy Elevation C @ 117, I know that lot 116 is Haverhill, we might be neighbours.

What are the things that I should be asking on the structural appointment, I am really new to this and would love to get all the information possible.
