New home building can really test a marriage…
luckily my husband knows his role not only in our relationship but in this house building game He is way more concerned with the HVAC and roofing . I am more involved in picking out lighting, paint colors, and decor. I do ask him before making decisions. This helps when he says that something he helped pick is ugly .. well, you picked it.
It was a stressful process in general so I have a few tips before getting this process started.The home building process obviously wasn’t too bad considering we are already talking about the next house. It is definitely what you make of it so remain positive and remember a few things:
1. The base price is not the actual price. There were so many instances that I wanted to justify my purchases. It is not that what the base had was bad but why not pay more for something that would feel more custom? My husband’s tip: add 10% to the base price.% | % | %
