Before which revolution…was there ready-made lumber?Would that be Grenada?

Maybe it has something to do with drywall openings
for plumbing/electric?
Just a thought.

What does this mean ? A guy told me that they just need to “punch out” the house and then they will be done.

What’s it mean ?

dew is correct. funny how contractors like to use their own meaningless code words to impress/confuse outsiders.

Contractors refer to punch out when they are finishing their work and they go through the home and fix any little things that may not be right.

If it’s new construction it likely refers to the final work items needed to be finished or touched up, which they put on their “punch” list.

It simply means that the person that owns the house will be beat up in his driveway and then be forced to sign all of the documents! This is more common practice in states such as Texas and Colorado. Other states implement the old kill em and take over the loan system!

Your attorney should have “Punch Out” forms that you can order through him. Check it out. If not, I’m sure someone here will know where to obtain such Docs

like the rei people using
abbreviations to confuse
the new people. contractors
were around before you white
collar slick cons came on
the realestate they labored
to build. punchout has been
in use since before the
revolution. the old english
homes were punched out of
readymade lumber. thats where
the term came from. put on
a bluecollar an do a days
work punching cows! you think
i punch cows? you would.
