We finally picked the house plan.....then...the tweaks/changes/additions started. We're 3 meetings in and up to items totaling 60+. Detailed folks are SO fun......
Here is the plan we chose BUT there are several huge changes...one of which is a side load garage (required by our new neighborhood but no problem with our 3/4 acre lot)....and hubs cannot handle that dormer over the garage, so an entire new elevation has been designed for him....bumping out the garage and adding a gable...
We are gathering the estimates and will then decide just what we are going to add....so far, almost everything.
Full granite backsplash
Under cabinet lighting
Exterior lighting under the eaves
Lights in all closets
Choosing a different mantel than standard
Choosing a different front door glass insert
I could go on and on and on.....60+ times...... We WILL have a fabulous house when it gets done...
Anyhoo...I am WORN OUT and we're not even done yet. As soon as we get this stuff figured out, I then have to pick color selections - which hubs says I have FULL control....I am putting this in writing so he remembers that! I have been SO good....really....being in the middle isn't fun (an employee and a client???)....I've tried to stay mostly out of it...
Here are photos of our new street:
But I will have an opinion on colors....from brick to roof to wall colors to tile to hardwood... Thankfully, we agree on everything so far. Wonder if that will continue. lol
Meanwhile, after I washed my hair tonight (after our walk at the park), I couldn't get my slipper on fully. I walked all the way to the living room, trying to force my foot in that slipper. It didn't work.
As I got to the couch, I supported myself so I wouldn't fall over (balance issues with the nerve damage) and pulled my slipper off.
Guess why my foot wouldn't go in?
A hair clip was in my slipper!!!!!!!!!
Can we say "Numb feet"?
Andy about fell over dying laughing. It was funny, but then it wasn't too. Kinda sad. Bet he'd feel a large plastic hair clip in his slipper!
I needed some levity tonight....so had to share. lol
Anyone else build a house and have great advice other than "stay out of it"?
