I have a 3 ring binder I am using to say organized. I highly recommend this! I put a copy of the plans that Ryan gives you in the outer sleeve with the picture of the house and name showing.
Inside I have tabs for different things.
Some of things inside are:
Tabs for Guardian
RiteRug (flooring place)
Stuff to buy after purchase of the house,
Financials (records of every check, every expense, print outs of pricing)
A section of general info (copy of blue prints, lots, neighborhood
info, Ryan info they give you)
PM meeting info
Rep communications (emails from my Rep answering questions or about home)
I have several copies of blue prints. One is plain and is in the general info section. One is in the after purchase section and has the placements of furntiure. The other is in the guardian section for electrical work. I got them from the Ryan website. I also printed out pictures of all of our choices for flooring and colors and have those in there as well. I also have notebook paper for notes.
I also have copies of everything we've signed and done with our Rep. Every change order, ect.
This notebook comes with me to every meeting!! No matter what. I never lose a thing a this way, and have good records of everything! When this all done, I hope to have the pictures I have taken through the building process in there too. I think when all is said and done, it will be neat to have (on top of keeping good records).
So this was just a thought I'd pass along. I only have a 1/2" binder right now, but it looks like I will need to go a 1" binder. So for all of you out there who are considering building or just in the beginning of this process, give it a thought!
