Owning a home is the American Dream! People plan, save and visualize about their America Dream, sometimes for years.
When you read the word “home” you probably have a picture of your own home that comes to mind. A fond memory and warm emotions accompany those thoughts and feelings. A smile may come to your face as you remember that special Christmas or amazing childhood birthday party at your home. Remember walking into your home and smelling your favorite Christmas cookies being baked or hear the laughter of family members enjoying themselves.
The quote, “Home is where your heart is” sums it all up. It’s where memories are created. Home is bursting with love and is felt for the first time. It’s where YOU got started.
As you can see a house is so much more than mortar, lumber, windows, a roof and some furniture. The walls, patio, kitchen and garage have much more meaning and value attached to them than the actual cost of the products to build them. The American Dream has much more attached to it that the numbers on the house designating the address. Whether you remodel or build-There’s no place like home!
Remodeling your American Dream allows you to update your drab kitchen, expand the bathroom to meet the needs of your growing family or add the home theater, game room or man cave to accommodate all your children’s (or husbands) friends.
Building a “custom” home is a life-long dream that is customized to fit your lifestyle, whether it is luxurious, recreational, modern, contemporary, or southwestern – you name it! When you build a custom home, you have the freedom to decide every detail, from location to size, overarching style to the finishing touches.
As you build, remodel or update your American Dream, it is important to know why you’re doing it. Why build? Why remodel or update? Understanding the reason “Why” you’re doing what you’re doing is the fuel that powers you through your project. It’s what creates the passion for what you’re doing. The “why” is the meaning and purpose behind the construction.
Christmas time can be stress filled. Take a few minutes out of your day to contemplate the above questions. We don't want add more stress to your life right now but take a break from the long list of things you need to do. Like….. pick up last minute things you forgot for the upcoming party or the gifts left to buy for that long lost Aunt somebody. Let go of that for a moment and focus on what your home means to you. Why do you want to make the changes now?
Christmas is a time to remember how grateful we are to have a home to live in. The abundance we have and the multiple gifts we receive every day.
Deeply understanding YOUR "why" will help you stay grateful and provide you focus and direction.
Merry Christmas from Sandy and Laura
