There are a couple of things off: the house is sited closer to the street than shown on my plan, the approved plan, and the back stairway is not as I intended and showed on my plan. I reminded the salesperson more than once that these things were changing and my plan showed the latest orientation but it looks like the contractor is using an older plan. I doubt I can do anything about it but it is frustrating to have this happen when I tried hard to prevent it.
Still, it looks good otherwise. The landscaping will have to change because there isn't as much room as planned in front, unfortunately. I hope the contractor - the landscape contractor - can come up with some changes that will punch it up, make the best of what's there.
