We lost our home in the Valley Fire Sept. 2015. We have been working with clearing the property and an architect drawing plans. We are about to take it our plans to bid. Contractors are very busy here and possibly cannot start until April or May. The 2 year date would be 5-6 months from then and doubtful that the house would be finished. Do we still have time under the federal extension allowed for building and would we still receive our living expenses? One adjuster told us as long as we were moving forward that is all they (AAA) cared about.
