You guys are lucky that you get to pay $500 to get a structural meeting. That wasn't even an option to us. Considering most of the structural changes are permanent and will cost tons to change afterwards, $500 is really not that big of a deal. But I agree that the builder hasn't been consistent with what they are doing to each phase, and their decor centre can never seem to put their acts together.

The $500 Structural fee is the cost that the engineer charges to make changes to the plans.
We are moving a wall and a window and making the opening b/n the kitchen and family room larger. All these changes were covered under the $500 fee.

Default hardwood flooring

Is anyone familiar with hardwood flooring? We were planning on raising our tiles and nosing in order to accomodate the installation of future hardwood floors after we move in. However, I heard that if you install engineered hardwood flooring - that raising the tiles and nosing is not necessary, as engineered flooring is typically less thick than solid hardwood flooring. Can anyone confirm this to be true?

I bought from Greenpark and had them raise my tiles and nosings to 3/4" and I just had engineered hardwood installed after closing and it is a perfectly smooth transition. No reducers were required - just as I wanted it. Mine was 3/4" thick. You need to pick your wood before you finalize your upgrades and once you pick your wood you inquire as to the thickness of it and go from there. If you want your stairs to match your wood you will have to pick from the two manufacturers that Greenpark installs (Vintage or Mirage) whether or not you have them install it or do it after closing because Greenpark will only match the stairs stain in a colour from those two manufacturers.
