We’re building in N.C.  glad it’s going smooth, know that’s not always the case. Permitting shouldn’t be to bad since it’s untouched land so nothing to tear down or remediate. Although got a feeling sewer and driveway are going to be $$$ house will be set back about 200ft from the road. I’d be happy with 3.875% ; two credit unions I’ve spoken to are lending at 4.25 and 4.5. Need to look around harder once we get a better estimate on the build cost. Lots of new stuff going up in my area too, people using equity for additions with the low rates I think.

Good luck!  Feel free to PM me if you'd like any advice or info.  Are you building on some acreage?  One of our bigger issues has been setbacks and the logistics of building on such a tight lot (~40'x~120').  Hope the lending goes smoothly, it seems like rates have been trending down so you can find something that fits your needs.

Also, if you're new to the process, you should check out this youtube channel.  Matt Risinger is local to me and is incredibly knowledgeable and always staying up to date with new building technology.  He builds some incredible houses!

Yeah, rates have been dropping enough that we’re looking into refinancing, even though we closed back in December, crazy as that is.

Thanks Clint. I’ll likely reach out over the weekend. It’s on .6 acres, we’ll have about 15 feet to both sides of the house not including the 10ft setback. So shouldn’t run into issues there. It’s. Triangle ish lot with the widest being at the front.  We’re building towards the back to get further off the road.

Love a good YouTube channel, I’ll check it out for sure, thanks !

We got our casita weathered in today! The cedar siding was installed last week and the roof/skylights were completed this evening.
