This is a great article - as a builder, protecting the budget is a high priority and these tips are very helpful. For #5, we have a New Home Experience Process to reduce the stress of building a new home. Part of that is guiding the homeowner through the decisions as they are needed in the building process. That way, decisions are made in order of how things will be built and we can reduce the overwhelming stress of making a lot of decisions at one time. Find out more about our New Home Experience.
