1. Where did you get your house plans?
We collaborated with a local architect to draw up custom plans. We don't have them available at this time. We found several plans we liked and brought them to the architect and pulled different ideas from each plan to create our own.
2. How many square feet?
Our house is 4500 square feet over 3 floors. We have 6 bedrooms & 5 bathrooms.
3. Did you stay within your budget?
No. I actually don't know anyone that ever has. I ALWAYS recommend people plan on overages at least 5-10%. Some of the overages you can control-then there will always be some overages you cannot control.
4. How long did it take to build?
Just shy of a year. Worked on house plans for 9 months before that. So the entire project took about 18 months.
5. Would you build again?
Yes. In the middle of the build I would have said NO WAY. Similar to having a baby...I'd definitely do it again :)
