Day #13

Day #13 - Finalization is finally finalized

We had our "2 week change" meeting. This is where you finalize all of your choices (interior & exterior). We were able to agree on appliances, we compromised on a freestanding range with double ovens and a high end microwave that doubles as an oven. We also added some pendulum light rough-ins above the breakfast bar. This should lighten that area up quite a bit. 

Nothing else really to mention mention. Oh, we are now getting the mortgage stuff in motion. Once that clears then it is time to break ground. 

Lessons Learned:

  • We are still getting the home of our dreams even if the appliances are not 100% what we wanted. 
  • Appliances are expensive
  • Building a house is expensive
  • Wives are expensive
  • Children are expensive
  • I need a second job
