If I had to do it all over again, I would just go buy a household.
This custom of building a perfect “dream” house is way more trouble than it’s worth.
I suppose my fiance doesn’t really believe that, she is loving all the detail work. I just want to have a household massive enough for all our possessions,that’s it. I’m not an expensive guy, I don’t want much, and I don’t enjoy a lot of these details. Plus it’s not as though it’s any cheaper to build than to buy, anyway. However do you actually know how much all of this costs? Well first of all we hired a general supplier, but this girl is really more of an organizer, so paying her is just the first step. One of the jobs of the general supplier is to get the needed work and building permits from the local authorities, and organize the labor, household and building construction is a complex process requiring the services of many kinds of skilled tradespeople. The general supplier may not do the roof, but they will go subcontract a roofing supplier to get that particular work done. The same with the plumbing, the electrical work, the Heating, Ventilation & A/C device, and all the other details involved with household and building construction. When all of the construction is finished and we can finally move in, I’m positive it will all be worth it. It’s taking a long while, general suppliers are not known for being speedy workers, so all we can do is hang out and wait.
