....is the hardest part. The plans for our latest LEED-certified home have been with Mecklenburg County's plan review department since July 15. They told me it would be ten days, and they were right (well, I guess it's now 11 days and no word yet). I understand that they've cut back staff in response to the downturn in construction, but I would think that with fewer plans to review the turnaround time would still be the normal five days.
While we wait, the planning continues. This should be one of the better planned out homes we've ever built.
Hopefully next week we'll have an update that construction is truly underway.
