Shopping

We had a lot of fun yesterday! We got to go to the Beazer Home design studio and pick out everything for our house. The other couple that was going to get our town home had already done this so we undid a lot of what they had wanted and added our own personality and style. I did not know people got to pick out everything they wanted in a new home. I like it! So we got rid of the previously ordered granite counter tops. We love em, but we are trying to save money. We also got rid of the crown moulding. Also, nice, but costly. Those 2 things alone deleted about 10 grand off the sales price. Then we added a bunch of stuff, but at lower levels. Level 1 is included so no cost. We stayed there with the carpet and tile. Level 2 is an upgrade. We went there with some things. We could go all the way to level 5 or 6, but of course we didn't. We got to pick out window treatments, carpet, tile, kitchen appliances, counter tops and cabinets in all wet areas, bathroom and kitchen hardware, keypad for garage door, etc, etc, etc. We couldn't change anything with electrical or plumbing cause that had already been ordered, but I don't think we would have any way. So after all was said and done we took off 10k and probably added about 3- 5k back onto the sales price. Not bad. The lady that worked with us has a cool job!

We had huge thunderstorms with hail yesterday! I love it.

Well, today is my 1st day of my new career!~

aww i remember working with the selection sheets that came in to my cabinet company and stuff. It was always amazing to look through what people selected and what they were willing to pay thousands to upgrade to...fun fun fun. Do you recall who the cabinet maker was? I'm always curious if they are our cabinet company since we were HUGE in the Tampa area. hehehe.
