Ok, so technically it’s not yet a house, but it will be! We decided to go with a new build.
Here’s the entry from a house with the same floor plan.
The reason we decided to build is simple. We felt burnt after going through the sale of our house in KS. I was going to go into a long explanation of why we felt burnt, but decided against it. Everything I typed out sounded bitter.
So we’re going the safe route. Building in a rapidly growing area where the school district is suppose to be top notch. Hopefully when the time comes to move again (fingers crossed it’s not too soon) we’ll be in an area where people are wanting to buy. To some it might sound boring, but for us it’s going to be bliss. No old windows that have to be replaced (I literally had nightmare about those old windows. Nightmares, people!), and no rotten fence that blows down when a bird flies by and farts. Bliss.
Izzy and Sam will have a pretty sweet playground too.
I’m a little worried about the building process. You know those people who stress over things that in the end, really don’t matter? You’re looking at her! I’m going to have to remind myself that this is suppose to be a fun experience and not a nerve wracking one.
Tomorrow I have to make some major decisions (kitchen and bath cabinets, counters, back splash, plumbing fixtures, appliances) alone. That’s not entirely true. I’ll have Sam in tow. I’m sure he’ll be on his best behavior and won’t have a meltdown or poop all over himself or me while we’re there…. Pray for me.
Do you guys have any tips for going through a build? Is it not as bad as everyone says, or should we fake our deaths and move to Mexico in order to get out of it?
