The demo process was actually really interesting. It took almost the whole week to get it fully demoed and hauled off.
We closed on our loan December 12th and, silly (delusional) me, thought that meant they would start building that week. Nope - 4-6 weeks. We met with them last Friday and the countdown was down to 2-3 weeks until forms, then plumbing, then foundation.
We are still fighting the good fight with our insurance company. We got one small payout (!!), but it is still on my weekly to do list to pester them until we get our money. Yesterday they said call back in 5 days. Will do.
This process, and my subsequent updating, has taken much longer than I anticipated but hopefully that will speed up shortly!
