Building your new home is a very exciting moment for you and your family. Often times this excitement overshadows the more important aspects of the construction process which we all know is the cost.
This will be my last post on the construction of this home plan. It’s been a couple of months since the last update and the home at this point is about 95 percent done. Flooring and other minor things are left undone for now.

By sheer luck, some homeowners will find their homes sitting at a near perfect position with respect to the sun’s travel.
Builders continue to confront the same major challenges they have seen over the past year, including competition from the large inventory of distressed homes on the market, inaccurate appraisal values, and issues with their buyers not being able to sell an existing home or qualify for favorable mortgage rates because of overly tight underwriting requirements.
