Call us crazy, but I can’t believe this is actually happening…we’re building a house! Didn’t we just put a pool in this house? Yes Are we crazy for doing this? YES! I have so many pieces to catch you up on so here is where it all began…
Sean and I are your regular Zillow lookers. We casually look ALL THE TIME. While we love this house, there are things I would change if I could build and there are things Sean would change. I’ve always wanted to build. Sean thinks it’s slight nostalgia from my childhood. In each house thus far, I’ve compromised on a certain finish or floor color, etc., because we’ve purchased inventory/ in construction homes.
One thing Sean really wanted and was a non-negotiable was water behind our house. He would love to live on the lake, but the type of house we want on the water is $$$$$. We decided to list our house with the mentality if it sold, it sold….and it did in less than 20 days.
We love the area we’re in as well as our neighborhood, so when a new section opened up with water, we were really excited! We signed the contract to ultimately find out the water was going to be mostly obstructed with the large trees that were already there. We were back to square 1 again.
We found a neighborhood a couple months early that was just being built and decided to go back through and see what progress had been made. After speaking with the sales agent, we could build the house plan I liked, there were water lots available, and it was in our budget. It’s a win all around! We haven’t broke ground, which is expected in the next couple weeks after the permits clear. I can’t wait to take you guys along on this journey!
