It took awhile. Some things are worth waiting for.
Dixie Hill Farm was worth the wait, 100%!
Over the last 25 years in business, I’ve walked through the process of building with many of my clients. What a great learning experience for me to prepare for building our own home. All the Do’s & Don’ts I learned along the way. In the coming months, I’ll be sharing more of my experiences of building that I hope will be helpful!
Here are the first 2 things I learned:
- Be prepared to become the clean up crew. Yes, you read that right. It’s not glamorous but oh so necessary. We were on site every day to keep the site & the building cleaned up. Sometimes I was really annoyed about it but I also didn’t want our beautiful place to look like the local dump. Don’t assume others will care about your place as much as you do. I know, disappointing right?
- Be decisive. The reality is you just can’t mull over decisions for too long for many reasons. Building is not the time to become wishy washy. I’m a decision maker, but my husband isn’t. That made for some interesting “discussions.” The more you can decide on before you ever break ground, the better, trust me.
So there’s just a few to get you started. I have a LOT more that are bit more technical that I’ll share with y’all soon. Do you have questions about your upcoming build? If you do, feel free to shoot a message over, I’d be happy to help!
