We did a complete window review today with the vendor, architect and builder. Unlike stick-built houses the concrete can't be adjusted easily once we order the walls with the window and door openings so this is a critical step. We adjusted sill heights, door and window sizes, and made sure we knew rough opening requirements (1 1/2 inches on the bottom, 1/2 inch on all other sides). Now we have to do one final check, initial the window size sheet and the order goes in. Delivery expected last week of August or first week of Sept. The entry door is the long-lead item which pushes the delivery out a bit.
