Yep, a few things aren't how we'd like them, and although getting exactly what you want is kind of the point to building from scratch, in reality, it's our fault for not spending enough time with the plans before we got to contract stage.
With hindsight we should have rescheduled our contract appointment though, as we had our first look at full drawings and elevations on the friday night before our first open house weekend. Which ended with a very late sunday night going through the offers presented, and negotiations, and acceptance. So it's not as though we were sitting around twiddling our thumbs, neglecting the plans. We really didn't have a chance to give them our full attention before fronting up to contract signing the next day.
Anyway - we move on. The plans are the plans. They
I could go into this build thinking that it's going to be crap and we will sell it within the first year.
Or I could get over my perfectionist tendencies and accept that I can't always get my own way.
I've got the power to change my thoughts.
And our block has power too.
