What are the details on that gorgeous in-wall fireplace? Is it custom built or available for purchase? It's a stunner!

Really smart article. Another HUGE way to save is to make your decisions and stick to them. Changing your mind or adding to the project part way through adds costs, both in time and money. Unless required by the Building Department, do not have change orders.
