We also met wtih Rite Rug for our flooring options. Rachel is the rep we worked with and she was patient, helpful, and very nice to work with. Rite Rug has the cabinets that RH uses onsite, so she was able to help us pick floors that match.
The next two meetings are with Guardian to discuss where we want our cable and phone hook-ups and hear their pitch on the other items they can install, e.g., security system, surround sound, central vacuum. There is zero chance we are adding a central vac or a surround system. We might have them do a security system, not sure yet.
The final meeting before they dig is the pre-construction meeting on 12/19. I suppose this is where we go over the plans and options to make sure that we are all on the same page.
If all goes as planned, they start digging the week of 12/22. We are not in a rush, so if they wait, we won't mind.
