So I figured it was time to post some more details.
Click here to see the house we chose to build. Some quick details. It's a 4 bed, 2.5 bath, Family and Living room, Dining room, SECOND FLOOR LAUNDRY!!!, TWO CAR GARAGE!!!, unfinished basement, and a morning room.
Some chosen options that stand out: Walkout basement (still wondering if I can get my bike through that door!), morning room, wood floors, upgraded 42" kitchen cabinets, stone fireplace, and a covered front porch!!!!
There is a house going up across the street and I find myself "stalking" that build. Being on the way home from work, I find myself driving by a few times after work to check progress. I'm sure when it's mine going up, I will swing by EVERY night.
Some tips and hints I have heard by now:
1) Run a PVC pipe from the basement to the attic for future .... anything. makes sense.
2) Lay a PVC pipe under the drive way for future underground dog fence, sprinkler line, etc... (def. doing this!)
3) Insulate the cold walls of the garage before the drywall goes up.
4) I plan to put in a blue outlet box behind the tv and run a pipe to the basement on both sides of the family room so I can run any speaker wire in the future.
Those are the big ones on my list to do. Do you have any ideas? What did you do? What do you WISH you would have done?
Have a great night.
