“I guess I never really thought about settling down,” Daniel said. “Until Michelle and these two guys came into my life, I was fine just renting an apartment.” He ruffled his step-son Maxwell’s hair. “But when you’re married. When you have a family. I guess that changed things for me. I was all of a sudden ready to have a home.”
Ashland Custom Home Construction
Having a home built for you in Ashland can be the smartest way to get exactly what you want. “We looked at a lot of properties,” Daniel’s wife Michelle said. “And I mean a lot. But either they were way out of our price range, or they were too small for our family. There were a lot of fixer uppers out there, but did we really want to buy someone else’s problems? We figured that a custom-built home was the smartest decision financially.”
To make the most of your budget, work with a design/build contractor in Ashland. Experience matters too: your custom built home is likely to be one of the largest investments you’ll ever make in your life. You don’t want to trust it to someone who’s never built a house before.
“What we did was ask for a list of other houses our Ashland building contractor had built,” Daniel said. “And we went driving around and we looked at those houses. We asked ourselves, “Could we see ourselves living there? Would we want to see ourselves living there?”
“Don’t just ask for recent houses,” Michelle advised. “You can tell a lot about how a home’s been built after it’s been there a decade or so. We’re going to be in this house for a long time. I wanted to make sure that we’ll be happy the whole time.”
