Home Deathspot

Spent a few hours at Home Depot over the weekend.  Not to buy anything, but to get a feel for what is available on the market in terms of cabinets, flooring, windows, doors, etc.

We are going out for estimates this week.  My bet is that we will be about 20% over our budget, which sucks because we don’t really have many places that we can cut corners.  We shall see.  Rick has been really helpful in helping us layout more or less what we would want from a design stand point and helped us to pick the major components of the house for these estimates.  Essentially, we gave each builder the plans and a list of what we want including types of countertops, windows, flooring, cabinets, etc.  Ideally, we will get apples to apples estimates back.

Should have something posted in the next week or so.
