HPG-2750-1 – The Breckenridge
Well, our story started about 5 years ago! My sister and her husband decided to split up the six acres they live on and let us build next door. It took us five long years to make it all happen.
We had to jump through hoops with the county government just to get the lot subdivided. As if that wasn’t bad enough, we had a contract on our house which fell through…after we had all ready moved out!
So in May of 2010, after literally years of looking, we found the perfect house plan! Your house plan HPG-2750-1!
It was exactly what we were looking for! It was finally our time!
My husband (a Captain in the Fire Department and myself (a homemaker) were about to start the most exciting and scary project we had ever done! We were going to build a house!
We decided to be our own contractor (the best decision we’ve made to date…saved ourselves over $100,000.00!). We made up a proposal and went to the bank with our fingers crossed! We must have impressed them because about a month later we were breaking ground!
At the beginning of September 2010, the excavator began the digging of the foundation and by mid April 2011 we were moving into our beautiful new home. Along the way were so many ups and downs and decisions to made.
We did so much of the work ourselves…my husband not only designed the kitchen…he built the cabinets himself (they are amazing!), he hung every door and did all of the trim work! I painted almost every painted surface in the house! We even had the kids helping!
This was an experience that I would never trade and we are all reminded every day that hard work does pay! We all love our new home!
