There are many choices in life.
Among the most important are your spiritual walk, your health,
who you marry, your family, your education, your career and where you
live. As there are many
choices that are presented to you, building a new home may be one of the
most important and challenging decisions as well as one of the most
rewarding, if you have the right guidance.
A home is your safe haven, a retreat, a place of
peace, an atmosphere to nurture your love for each other and your
family. We all have
memories of the home we grew up in, memories of visiting grandpa and
Grammy’s house and the smell of the meal she prepared with love.
And think about the special memories of visiting your best
friends' houses. If you let
your mind go back to those times, you will remember something about
those homes that you liked.
One of the questions I ask of those considering
building a house is to list 5 things you dislike about where you live
now and 5 things you would not change about the dwelling that you live
in now. In your dreams, your plans, remove the dislikes and
duplicate the good. It may
be possible to enhance the good things.
Put together a scrapbook of every room in your dream home, even
the landscape. Don’t
forget the garage and special buildings, porches, gazebo, special hobby
rooms, ponds, pool—you’re getting the idea.
Our philosophy is: When quality is remembered,
the price is forgotten. We
all have purchased an item because it was inexpensive and regretted it
later. That said it
doesn’t have to be expensive to be quality.
There is a balance --- common sense.
SMS Custom Homes is dedicated to helping you make
the best choices for you and your budget. We want to help you build a home so that when you
reflect back on your choices, you will say with a smile on your face and
joy and peace in your heart --- there is nothing I would change! Therefore, we are committed to working with you
for whatever length of time it takes to come up with a plan and budget
for your dream house or vacation home.
Many people take two, three, five years or longer before they
build. It’s OK, It’s a
big step. We understand.

Ben Franklin used a “T” chart to help him
make difficult decisions. He
would list pros and one side and cons on the other.
Try it. Be honest
with your answers. You will
find the chart works.
