We also heard back on our porch issue. Seems that they won't do anything about the porch - even if we pay for the change. I am shocked - I want to give them money to fix something and they won't. It is really putting a damper on how much I like the house. It looks like we will just have to do it after settlement. I haven't given up completely yet.
As an added bonus, they completed our siding and put on our shutters. It looks great so far!
