Keep it real. Be ready for changes and additions. Extra lights, extra plugs, privacy screen, better windowa, etc. It means more money but if you planned it right, you’ve already earmarked a certain percentage above your home build contract to make the matter that much less stressful.
Still, no reason for your contractor not to give you all the details. (We got our 12 page estimate today) And ideally you should have an updated list every month to monitor the expenses. Unfortunately, this didn’t stop the surprise 20% overshot from last month’s estimate. But all in all we’re well within budget.
Ok on with the updates:
Let there be Light (by Odelic): Over the future dining table.
Kitchen Dining Counter Lighting.
Finally, a proper family sized washer and dryer (by Whirpool). Never thought I’d be excited over a Whirlpool.
Western dishwasher (by Miele) so we can kiss the daily game of dishware tetris in our counter top Japanese dishwasher.
Our new Satis Toilets (by Inax). Unless you’ve lived in Japan you won’t get this but…Japanese toilets are the BEST !!!.
