    Hello, It was an absolute pleasure meeting with you on Friday and going over our house plans. Like all plans they tend to change and the lot information I provided was incorrect. I misunderstood our realtor and the correct lot is attached to this email. It's still a full acre and I attached our idea for the positioning of the house on the lot. Please let me know if you have any questions. As before use your creativeness to adjust as you think might be a better solution. Thank you Charles
