The biggest issue was finding a lot - the area we were looking in (Eastern/Northern Baltimore County) is fairly full, and nobody is opening up new land for development with things the way they are. We looked for about 2 months and saw a lot in a small development that could work for us. The lot was committed to one builder. He is a custom builder, and we started from a blank sheet of paper to get the design we wanted. The overall design went very quickly - about a month and a half. We had been looking at plans on the Web and other places, so we had a good idea what we wanted. The details of the kitchen, bathrooms, etc. took about 2 months. The builder is very flexible, and we can do upgrades and change some things like door locations if we need to as construction progresses.

To get back to the OT, the builder talked to the local Overhead Door branch, and they are on top of the jackshaft opener and installation for the tall ceilings, so it all looks good.

Have Fun,
