I finally sold my 1st home after being on the market for 10 months. I had to lower my price a few times, but in the end, it sold and I had a down payment for my Dream Home. My new home is being built...and it will take 6 months before I get to move in. In the meantime, there are lots of decisions. There are upgrades for everything-tile, flooring, sinks, security, paint, counter tops, cabinets, built ins, electrical, wiring, etc. I had no idea. It is actually a bit overwhelming and I just can't get into it- it seems more frustrating than I have had my mom make most of the decisions, since she has a eye for these kind of things and she is having a ball- she keeps saying there is no budget, which makes me so nervous, since I AM the one paying. I definitely know what I like and everything I seem to like is a level 4 upgrade (meaning the MOST expensive!). We did decided to have the entire downstairs tiled- after all I do have 3 Yorkie puppies and carpet is an absolute NO! Wood flooring will be upstairs and my cabinetry will be dark wood. My bathroom and the guest bathroom downstairs will match. And we upgraded my entire kitchen. I will continue to post pictures as the building progresses... Here are some pictures of my home (under construction), the clubhouse, inside the clubhouse, the kid zone, pool, patio and BBQs.

I know the feeling!

We went to the design studio where you pick the upgrades at LEAST four times before making our final appointment. Not to mention the spreadsheets and internet research we did at home.

I could not believe when the lady told me that some people's final appointment is the FIRST time they ever step foot in the studio. I would be so overwhelmed!

Good luck!
