This house building business is proving a real test to my budgeting prowess or lack thereof! I’m finding it increasingly easy to let the heart overrule the mind and get carried away by the excitement of building the dream home.
During the idle weeks prior to contract signing, I made a lot of modifications from the standard plans. Of course, these were not freebies but I was mindful to get the most bang for our dwindling buck and luckily the mods I decided on didn’t make a huge dent to our bottom line. Who woulda thought changing the window in the powder room from the standard sliding to a picture window worthy of a 5-star resort would only set us back $35? Money well spent I reckon!
Don’t I wish all the upgrades were just as cheap! If money was no object, I would absolutely love to have these gorgeous things in our dream home.
Time to start buying lottery tickets perhaps?
