Our newbie ss is the best one we've had. He's done more in 3 weeks than the last guy did in 4 months.

This is nothing. We're in our 11th month of our build and still don't have a lower roof.

This forum has been great. We knew going on there would probably be delays. Our biggest reason for sticking with them was the fact that we loved the design and…

You're allowing for the fact that there will probably be major, significant delays on your build as has been the case with most of us here. There appears to be…
