We found out why our closing date is so far away (as I mentioned before, our house is pretty much done, but we are not closing until September 21st). Apparently he needs to order a completely new shower for our master bedroom because ours is cracked. He is not sure how long it will take for that to come in so he's holding off on settlement to be safe. It's a bummer because I'm getting anxious to get settled and unpack all of our stuff (we are living with my dad now and have kept most of our boxes packed). On the other hand, I'm glad they are replacing it, not just trying to patch it up. On the other hand, it's annoying because the crack was clearly caused by a careless worker dropping something so if not for him we could probably be closing next week. On the OTHER hand (uh oh, I'm out of hands), were are still on schedule even with the September 21st closing date so I guess I really can't complain because this is what they told us from the beginning.
Our pre-settlement demonstration is scheduled for the same week as settlement right now, but I'm trying to get that changed because Greg and I both have important work things that week so we don't want to take two days off. I'm hoping they will be accommodating. Considering our house is basically done, I can't see why it should be a problem.
