Typically these inspections are handled by the lender. In your situation you could speak to a home inspector though this isn't really what they do. I would suggest you use them to do a pre-drywall inspection of the foundation/framing/rough-in plumbing and electrical and then again once the home is completed. You could certainly inspect for draws yourself. each draw request submitted by the builder should include a line item accounting of what the draw is paying for so that you should be able to easily verify if the work that the contractor is requesting payment for has been done or if it's for materials that they are in fact on the job site.... more
You should really seek the advice of an attorney. Although the CC&R's could be poorly written, you need the advice of an attorney for interpretation. A court could interpret this differently. Did you purchase title insurance? Although a long shot, contact your title company or closing attorney to see if this affect on Title would constitute some advice from the title company's attorney. Good Luck!!... more

Hi, I have lived in the Flathead Valley my entire life ,& the winters are becoming much milder. When I was young, I remember trudging through the snow while walking to school, & when winter came,usually early or middle of November, We would have snow till spring!!! Nowdays we tend to get a few inches of snow, it stays around for a week or 2, then melts off, until the next snow.Although in 1997 we did have a bad snow packed winter . Yesterday it seemed rather cold 20 degrees, however, compared to the record low on that day which was in 1979,when it was 37 degrees below 0 !!!! so yesterday was actually quite warm!!! Winter is a surprze,we never know from week to week what our weather will be!!!... more
