Big news on the housing front! J and I met with the builders for our home yesterday morning, and gave them our updated ideas for the floor plan. We had a multitude of changes to make, mostly reconfiguring the cabinet/storage space (and shop space!)…. because, well, we NEED and WANT it.
I say “need and want”, because as Dad so succinctly puts it, “It’s YOUR home, YOU are paying for it, and it should to be the way YOU need it and want it – if they can’t accommodate you, find someone that will”.
He’s right, of course (but don’t tell him that…. )
Fortunately, the builder can and will make the changes we requested, and thanks to Pinterest, I had lots of pictures to show them of features that we want to add, especially to the kitchen. We both agreed that it was a smart move on our part to wait as long as we did in terms of finalizing the plans, as we discovered during our week long vacation together during Thanksgiving break that we definitely require a whole lotta counter and storage space for all of our gadgets and appliances.
So now, we sit back and wait patiently for the next set of plans to arrive. It’s hard to believe that before this year is over, we will be living in our new home on the ranch.
Or, as Mom puts it, “Living out in the swamp…”
She will change her tune when she sees her suite …..
