My wife, Reba, and I knew that the day was coming when we would have to move from our house on 16 acres where we had lived for about 20 years. While we enjoyed the woods, it would just be too much work as we grew older. Therefore, we purchased a 1/2 acre lot on a golf course about 6 years ago, but with no immediate plans to move. While I enjoyed golf, I assured Reba that I wouldn’t move until she did!
Over the last 6 years, we have looked at house plans, bought house plan software, and visited open houses for new homes. There may be a house plan we haven’t seen, but it is doubtful. In January of 2012, Reba decided it was time to get serious and see if we could sell our existing house. We then started cleaning out our basement and preparing the house for sale. Of course, during the process of preparing our house for sale we also had to get serious about finding the right house plan and a builder. After many showings but no legitimate offers, we did sell our house in July. We also settled on our house plan from House Plan Gallery. We ordered the plans as a download and proceeded to get estimates from several builders.
We feel fortunate to have found Chris Austin and Central Construction Company LLC. We also appreciate the prompt responses we received from House Plan Gallery and the architect concerning some of the changes we were anticipating. We were able to move into our new house in January, 2013, and have been very pleased with the final product. The house plan looks very good on the lot we purchased and we have had many compliments on both the exterior and the interior. After 6 months, there is not a thing we would change and we hope to live here for many years.
