When I finally got the promotion at work I had been waiting years for, the first thing on my wife and I's agenda was to finally build that new home we had wanted to for so long. We had already been saving for the down payment and the promotion offered the extra income stability we needed to take the plunge. When we started planning the home with the builders, we learned just how many small and large decisions have to be made during the building process. However, making those decisions was very exciting and we now love our new home that is just perfect for our needs. I enjoy sharing stories of the building process with friends, so I thought I would start a blog to share my stories with the world along with home building and remodeling tips and tricks. Come back soon!
