Get exactly what you want while staying within your budget.
Building a home last year was an education for my husband and me. We had never even bought a home much less built one. Working with the builders, picking out finishings and being involved in the details of every decision was sometimes overwhelming. Thankfully, my husband had experience negotiating contracts and I had experience managing projects. However, the best lessons we learned were how to manage our money to get exactly what we wanted while staying within our budget.
