However, if >> we don't get approvals, I'm afraid most of the group will "move on." >> >> Is there anything you can tell us to help us avoid disaster? >> >> Thanks for sharing, Not a single thing. A host of them. Primarily, Bad advice from professionals. Slow Architect Over-design Loosing Households Bad luck g If there's one thing you can do. Don't trust your professionals all the time. Get a second bid/opinion. Location is a biggie. Make sure you're not over-designing, your contractor stick to their estimates and set a date for move-in. For starters.
