Laura (New Home Specialist), thank you for your last update on Buildertrend. We have been genuinely amazed at how quickly the crews have done their jobs. Dave (Project Manager) has done a really good job of keeping us informed of what was going on. He certainly has done his job of seeing that if he says it is going to happen, it happens. The crews have always been on schedule or even ahead of schedule. Thank all of you again.Alan & Sue Bowers | Ney, OH
