What if you arrived at a new construction to do a final inspection and saw a sign on the door.
What if the sign at the door said, New Construction - "Please leave your coconuts at the door."?
Usually the sign I see asks that your shoes be left at the door.
Some builders even have a little bin of booties for you to put on.
My feet are so big that those booties are often too small for me!
At this house, however, it was apparent that your shoes did not need to be removed.
Instead, obviously, your coconuts are to be left outside.
While coconut oil is one of the healthiest oils you can eat, apparently it should not be allowed into a new home, at least until the occupants take possession.
However, I did not have any coconuts with me, and felt badly that I was unable to comply.
They let me in anyway. Thank goodness!
My recommendation: it's best to be prepared when you go with your clients to a final walk through of new construction. Don't forget your coconuts. Thank you in advance for your attention to this matter.
