Default We're building a house.

Interesting process, since I've never done it. Spent this weekend signing paperwork and choosing colors and styles. It's a beating.

Going to be on an acre in Venus, and will be having a shop built immediately. Im super stoked about that part.

6-7 months away.

Ours will be this design, garage door will be side entry, and we opted for austin stone around the entry.

shit, I wish. We didnt do most of the "extras" that the builder offers cause we're cheap. The media room was cool, but not $16k cool. Same with the 8K 3rd garage bay, $5K covered porch option, etc. I'd rather spend that on the shop.

Cool!

In retrospect, I wish I had added the $11k 4th garage, the media room ($?), the $2.8k patio cover, and increased the width and depths on all garages, and waited to find somewhere where I could build a shop. Choices, choices...

Keep in mind that now those things are impossible or cost 2-4 times as much. Being "poor" sux.

Get the garage man, it will add at least that in property value. Even with a shop, you'll want/need the garage space.

The shop and 1 acre is definitely the real story here. I am completely fine with my current house, but give me another few hundred to a thousand square feet detached, with concrete floors, high ceilings and a large bay door!

Congrats man. And the side entrance garage is awesome too!

I didnt care about the media room, we have one now that we never use. The wife thought it would be a great idea, then when we saw the price, she changed her mind quick!

I was in for a third bay and extended depth, but it was crazy expensive. I also didnt want to build the most expensive house on the street.

That's the part I wanted the most. It's right down the road from the shop (that I quit dec 31st)

I don't know if a garage adds value ..

when I sold my house in Texas ,I had a attached 2 car and a

30 x 30 unattached with 11 foot side walls , all finished and nice, had heat and air in it

was hard to sell and I only had one offer and it was a low one

realtor told me the shop added nothing for value

I just found out about that the other day.. I'm sure it sucks having had the shop available all this time, then not.

Probably depends on the area. That said, it may not add to the sales value, but sure adds value for the guy using the place!

It'll suck a lot less in a few months when I have my own. Im already planning out where I want the doors, lift, etc.
