My hubby and I got married more than four years ago, however shortly after our wedding, the people I was with and I moved into an beach house while the people I was with and I looked for the perfect home. All of us expected to be in this beach house temporarily. All of us signed a lease for only multiple months. Little did the people I was with and I know, finding the perfect beach house would take much longer. All of us ended up staying in that beach house for several years. It was worth it in the end. My hubby and I had a truly particular list of things the people I was with and I wanted in our home, which delayed the process a bit. For example, the people I was with and I wanted a beach house that was built in the early 1900s with a truly victorian look, but the people I was with and I weren’t willing to do a lot of work on the house. One thing the people I was with and I were willing to work on was the heating and cooling system. In fact, my hubby wanted to completely update the heating and cooling system. After finding our dream home, the first thing the people I was with and I did was call a heating and cooling consultant. My hubby’s particular requests on the update delayed completion and therefore delayed our move. He initially wanted a smart thermostat. The heating and cooling specialist started legitimately working on our home, but part way through, my hubby decided he also wanted radiant floors. This further delayed completion by a few weeks because this was a major update. It required them to install pipes underneath the floorboards. It was frustrating, but I knew my hubby was making the best decisions for us. Anyway, in the end, it was all worth it. All of us ended up with our dream home.
