Joe is kind of a nerd and took care of all the details. We drew it out on a piece of graph paper, and he calculated what each of those little squares would equal in feet. Every time we made a change, we would retrace the plan on a new sheet of graph paper. I can’t even count how many “rough drafts” we went through. Our number one goal was to make sure every single corner was utilized and very thoughtfully designed.
Once we had the interior layout just how we wanted, we took it to our builder. He was able to take those plans and help us create the exterior look. We knew we wanted to stand out in the neighborhood + have a modern feel.
If I could give any tips for those of you building a new home, whether now or down the road, it would be to do you. You don’t always have to fit in to the norm if that’s not you. Make lists + save pictures of everything, whether its a want or a need. As they change, change your list. Your home is your space for you + your people to grow and love, so take the time to make it special.
