My fiance and I waited until we were retired to build our certainly first home.
In fact it is only the seventh property we have ever owned. Every one of us bought a little house with limited Heating and A/C out of college. That was great as we started our supplier and put our bit of a life plan into action. Once we were settled and the supplier was solid, we found another home. The thinking was we would beginning our family there and then maybe build as our family grew. Plans met reality when the recession hit. Every one of us were able to hold onto both our supplier and our house however it wasn’t easy. The more than three children we were planning to have turned into just the more than one we had. Every one of us got them raised and through college in that home. It was hard to sell it. However, after running our own supplier for 35 years we decided to sell and spend the rest of our lives out adventuring. So, the first adventure was to build our own house from scratch. Of course, we hired a general contractor for the structure. But, we did almost all the subcontracting ourselves. This was not an easy thing to dive into. It was more appreciate herding cats than I had envisioned. At least the Heating and A/C area was not to tough. Every one of us asked around for the best Heating and A/C contractor and we found a single. This guy did an amazing task. From the moment he first arrived on the tasksite to the first flick of the switch, he was nothing however a consummate professional.
