    More on Building Your Home

    Sunday, October 16, 2005
    I have a few more ideas about building your home, hopefully some will help you if you ever decide to build or are in the process of building:

    1. Put what you really want into the house from the beginning - everyone finds out the hard way that if they move a wall two feet it can cost thousands and delay the process.

    2. Upgrade what you can afford to if it is important to you - it will cost you thousands to rip out brand new materials and replace them with the upgrade you had desired.

    3. Do not worry so much if you have a high construction loan rate on your own or from the builder - we just refinanced when the house was finished for a much lower rate.

    Many more ideas soon on all of these topics!
