HPG-18002-1 – The Shadow Lane
My husband & I were living in Oklahoma when we had our twin daughters. They came early and we didn’t have any family out there so we decided that we would move back to Tennessee where all of our family lives. We purchased a small 900 sq. ft. doublewide mobile home just 1 mile from my parents and 3 miles from his parents. It was most convenient to have built-in babysitters.
After 5 years, when our daughters were walking & talking and headed for elementary school, we decided that 900 sq. ft. just wasn’t big enough. We were given 9.77 acres of land by my husband’s mother, and began looking through house plans online and went and bought your plan catalog.
A few house plans in there actually appealed to me, but we decided to go for the HPG-18002-1 house and find a contractor. The contractor we chose was actually my father-in-law’s best friend. He agreed to build the house for cost + 10% which is unheard of now.
We were able to get nearly everything we wanted for just at $200K. Hardwoods, tile, fireplace, basement, stainless appliances, brand new front load washer & dryer on pedestals, etc.
Some of my favorite features of this home are the large master bathroom, the his & her closets in the master suite, and the wonderful basement. Also, we made just a few updates to the layout of the home including: taking the workshop out of the garage, on the main level, and used it to increase the size of our pantry/laundry room. Also we added a single garage door in the basement for a workshop. We also re-arranged one of the bathroom areas so that we could have a bigger window on that side of the house. And finally, we opened up the wall between the media room and living room and we use it as a open office…
It has been a dream come true. It’s not our first house but it’s OUR house. We love it! On top of all of that we have managed to pay off all of our debt (credit cards, cars, student loans) and we are now paying 1/2 mortgage payment bi-weekly. We only owe ~$200k but our house & land have already been appraised at over $325K, so we are happy about that.
Thank you for the wonderful service your company provided in the beginning so that we could manage to have a such a beautiful home now!
