Ok, so I’m a Nerd.
September 13, 2010
Can I just say that I love construction? I mean, I reaaaalllllly love construction. You may not believe it, but it’s true. My hubs and I love to walk through homes under construction just to find out what’s on the inside. Needless to say I always want to know why we do what we do when it comes to construction. A lot of my buyers consider me to be very well informed because I can answer about 90% of their construction questions and I get super excited when one of my buyers brings a friend or relative who actually builds or remodels homes for a living to check us out. It’s like getting to be on Construction Jeopardy! So, that makes me a big nerd. But, it’s also good for you ‘cause I’m going to explore our construction on this blog. When I first started thinking about this topic, I thought about my Gramma’s cooking. She is an excellent cook and any one who’s ever eaten her food will tell you that. (you know who you are, ahem, Cecil) The secret to her cooking is that it’s a little different every time. You can’t ever really re-create any of her dishes because there really isn’t a recipe she follows religiously; it’s just what she does in reaction to how it’s going at the time. Well, building a home really isn’t like that. Yes there are ingredients and every buyer has their specific color and carpet choices that are going into the home, but we warranty our structures and guarantee our kilowatt hours on our HVAC and we can’t just wing it every time. A dash of insulation here or there won’t a guarantee make! So is there a recipe for building a sound home? Yes! What is it? Well, stick around and find out, ‘cause I’m gonna show you!
