No door? Hilltop Farm - Now

It was 3:00 in the morning when my husband woke up and said, "they didn't cut out the door." Me, "huh?" Him, "They poured the wall, but they didn't leave room for the door. I knew something was wrong, but I couldn't figure out what it was, and it just now hit me. They poured the wall, but didn't cut out for the door. I know they didn't, because I stepped over the wall, I didn't go through a doorway." At 4:00, we got up, went downstairs and looked at the prints. We could see how they could be miss-read, however common sense dictates a doorway needs an opening, right? But the schematics were not that specific. They did not specifically say, "cut foundation for door." They just showed a picture of a door. hmmm....So, we got dressed, and at 5:00 a.m. we were on our land, with flashlights, traipsing around in the mud, trying to figure out why they wouldn't cut out for a door. We found out that everything is fine, and is exactly as it should be. It just took a trip out there at 5:00 a.m. (before he went to work) to see that it is ok. It's one of those things that is not worth trying to explain, because you'd never get it without specifics....but let me just say. I'm exhausted. And I still don't have builders insurance. Which was on my list for what day? Tuesday? Why? They don't get it, or I don't know, maybe I don't get it. They want to know what kind of floors I'll have; carpet, hardwood, etc. I have no idea. I don't want the house insured, I want the framework insured in case of tornado, or fire. The framing doesn't have carpeting. Anyway, I wish it were the old days, when something like a fire happened, your insurance was your good neighbors who came over and everyone pitched in to help re-build. More later.....I missed taking pics yesterday, I need to get out there today....but I'm tired. Cindy
