Never Settle for a Home You Don't Love

When I was finally ready to purchase my first home after I graduated from college and found a stable job, I was on a tight budget. I settled for a house that was "good enough" for the time-being, but knew that in the future I would move to a larger one. Once I met my wife and she moved in, we thought about moving but loved the location of our home and had made great friends with the neighbors. For years, we thought we had "to settle" with the home we had since we didn't want to move, but recently, we decided to have several of our rooms remodeled. We are now in love with our home and think everyone should live in a home they love! We decided to start a blog to share what we learned about home construction and remodeling during the process!
