Wednesday, Another chart!

Completed another chart yesterday and boy am I behind for the year compared to last year.  But I am am grateful to be onto chart #8.

Hubs and I met yesterday with a builder of a new subdivision.  We had a list of things we wanted to ask about building a new home.  We walked through a home that was just built.  It seemed a little small to me, and I did not like the plastic inserts in the showers or the plastic molded tub.  But we were free to pay more for tile, which I was willing.

We picked out a lot and decided that is what we were going to do.  The builder called this morning and said we needed to find another contractor as they did not want to make that many changes to our plan.  In other words No changes.

These homes are being sold fast and furious and they do not want to slow down and make any exceptions.It takes longer to bring in a tile man than to throw together a three piece plastic shower stall and they have to stay on a time track.  It takes longer to lay hard wood than to put down carpet.

So we are back to square one.  This might be a blessing, actually it is a blessing, I think......

Yesterday was bridal day with fittings all day long and my goal today is to get at least two if not three knocked out.  We are leaving tonight to our daughters to go take care of Schmills and help her a little. 

I need to get to work!

Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.

  1. It wouldn't work, so it seems, it has to be the best decision...

  2. Do you realize that most of your text is unreadable because an ad is covering it?

  3. I'd say blessing. You sure don't want a contractor that isn't willing to work with you.

  4. Congrats on the new chart-I'm surprised so mnay wedding dresses, but I guess f small they are still going on. 2020 just seem slike a wash out for weddings. I agree wiht others-if the buider wouldn't meet upgrade preferences, move on.

  5. I agree with Cheryl, you wouldn't want to work with a contractor who doesn't want to work with you.

  6. Another voice agreeing with Cheryl and Belinda. You do not want to work with a contractor that wants to build "fast and cheap".

  7. You approached a builder who works on builder grade homes. He wants to throw them up. You would not have been happy with the quality work anyway.

  8. Woo hoo another chart down!
    Be glad things did not work out. If the builder was reluctant to do it, it would become a gigantic pain in the tush. Something you have not even begun to think about yet will suddenly appear and you will be extremely happy then.

  9. I would say that GOD's plan and your plan are not on the same page. Keep packing, keep looking and pray.

  10. I've learned that when I don't get what I want, it's God's way of telling me that he has something better in store. I see this as a blessing. Hang in there Kim. God has something far better in store for you.

  11. In my area of South Carolina near Myrtle Beach they just throw homes and developments up left and right. And all the homes look the same, just like they didn't in the 1950's when the 'suburbs' began booming and the builders don't care as long as it's cheap and fast. My home was built that way and unfortunately I was young and didn't understand about quality when we bought it..
