Building our dream home

After college, my husband and I spent nearly ten years renting a tiny apartment.

We lived in a rather nasty neighborhood and put up with outdated accommodations for the sake of cheap rent. We worked as much overtime as possible, cut coupons and went without luxuries in order to save our money. We saved every possible dollar so that we could eventually build our dream house. Instead of going out to fancy dinners, taking vacations and seeing movies, we researched floor plans, roofing materials and kitchen cabinets. It took awhile to afford a piece of property in Lincoln, Nebraska. The state’s capital city is ranked as one of the best places to live in the country. We like the scenic vistas and the change of seasons. We enjoy cold and snowy winters, hot and sunny summers, gorgeous colors of the fall and fresh rains of spring. Despite all our planning, we needed the assistance of a professional building contractor. As handy as my husband and I are, we don’t understand all of the ins and outs of new construction. We found a reputable construction company who is licensed, insured and experienced. They have the resources to handle all stages of the project quickly and properly. They handled all of the building inspections and made sure the electrical system, plumbing, HVAC and everything else complied with local zoning requirements. They helped us choose good quality windows, light fixtures, plumbing fixtures, countertops and everything we needed to outfit a comfortable and energy efficient home. Because of the skills of the construction company, we pay less in utility bills and enjoy healthy indoor air quality. We are totally happy with the end result.
