These weeks are just blowing by. Okay so…
Friday, we went back out to the design center, which is 50 miles one way. It’s a bit of a trudge, but I’m really glad we went back. We switched the quartz to the more durable granite countertops. We chose blue galaxy granite with white shaker cabinets. That particular granite was on one of the counters in the design center and we really liked it, but we’ll get an opportunity to see and approve it at the slab yard before they install it. We are still making adjustments before we lock in, but we’ll need to do that this week as they’re supposed to break ground on our house on the 14th.
By the time I’m done with this process, I’ll have a dozen book ideas. Most of them murder mysteries, LOL. Our experience so far has been very positive so far, but I can see some buyers being more upset. Wizard and I had researched this so had a good idea what to expect. But…you’re told you can customize your home, however everything is “packaged” into major upsales. So if you want pullout shelves in your cabinets, first you have to buy the premium package that gives you a bunch of cool features and upgrades, and ONE pullout shelf. Then you can add to that.
So, yeah, I can see some book plots in this experience. All that said, our designer has been amazing to work with, very helpful and respectful of our budget. I like her a lot and I appreciate her straight up answers when we ask questions.
Saturday we had to drive about 80 miles to the memorial service, but it was worth it and we’re glad we went.
Sunday, Wizard and I were both wiped out and nothing exciting happened. We wanted to see Turbo, but both of us needed a day of not driving.
That was my weekend, how was yours?
