Question on Locking In

I'm at work right now, and all of my paperwork is at home, and I just realized that I forget when the timing is supposed to kick in that we can lock in our interest rate.  What stage of the game is that again?  Anybody know if they are still decent today?  We're really hoping to get it between 4.5 and 4.75....THANKS!!! :)

On to the Second Floor!

Hey guys!  I'm so psyched right now, I went by the house yesterday afternoon with my mom and brother.  Our first floor is pretty much framed out and by next week we should have the whole house framed and be under roof!  Then, all the electrical things start to happen and all that "stuff".  How long does that "stuff" take?  It's so funny because I want everything to be precise, but at the same time, I want this to move even faster!  I need to work on my patience!!!!!  I assume that we will have a pre-drywall meeting before I know it?  I'm so excited!!  Here are a few pics for all of you :)  Happy Father's Day to all the great Dad's out there!  Enjoy your day!

Our front porch on the left, garage on the right.

Our hole!

I went to the model home with my family yesterday to show them the finished product.  While I was there, the guys were working on the slab for our garage floor.  Our Sales Rep told me that they should begin framing on Monday and the longest it would take to finish is 2 weeks.  He thinks it'll only take about a week, a week and a half.  I didn't take any other pictures because the guys were right there, and I couldn't fit my car through the road because of all the trucks.  However, I am posting the pictures that I promised - including a picture of our wood ;) Enjoy!  Hope everyone is having a great weekend!! :)

Hi everyone!  I promise I will be posting pictures soon, I've just been so busy between work & wedding stuff it's a little crazy over here right now!!!  Anyway - our PM called John last  Friday and told him that they would be waterproofing the basement and backfilling this week, then hopefully framing next week!  From experience, how long does waterproofing take?  And backfilling?  I'm assuming that backfilling is just putting dirt around the foundation of the house?  I'm kind of lost! hahaha - I just want to know how long we should expect before they start framing!

Thank you!!!
