Pre-Construction Meeting Questions

We have been contacted to set up our pre-construction meeting!!!!  This means we will be breaking ground sooner than anticipated!

So with this meeting happening in a few days, I have looked at a ton of blogs and their pre-construction meeting questions…..and at this point I have 30, lol!  Our poor project manager has no idea who he is dealing with.   Oh well, this is a huge investment and I want to make sure it is done right.  As our SR knows, I ask TONS of questions ALL.THE.TIME.   If I don’t feel something is right, I will let them know.  If I don’t like his answer, I will let him know.  When it comes down to it, this is what they get paid for, and I am a paying customer who wants to feel comfortable and confident with this purchase.

Here is my list of questions…..if I add more I will update.  Am I missing anything?!?!

  1. Driveway width?  What is it made of?  Will it be done in the winter or spring?
  2. How many steps to front porch?
  3. Hose bib location and number?
  4. Are there any exterior outlets?  Locations?
  5. Location of AC unit and heat pump?
  6. Location of flood light? Standard exterior lights?
