In other news- I was taking a look at my exterior color choices again (this obsession is unreal) and I JUST realized they actually give you color choices if you want your shutters and your door to match. Long story short- I could have had my red door! If kicking myself would help- I would do that, smh. The one thing I am not thrilled with during this whole process is the hurry up and make decisions and then we will make you wait a bit. There are a couple of things that I would have chosen differently if given the time:
1. I might have asked for special permission to build a Jefferson Square. I love the CG but the Jefferson would have allowed us to add a 5th bedroom and incorporated a Jack and Jill (or in my case a Jack and Jack) bathroom like my boys wanted. In addition, I could have had a walk in pantry and an extended mudroom.
2. If they had said no to the Jefferson, I would have added the second bath to bedroom #2 at first build.
3. I would have definitely gotten my red door!
Am I regretting purchasing the Courtland Gate? NO! I am sure I will love my new home- but its the what ifs that always nag a person. Who knows- maybe the universe knew that the Jack and Jill bathroom would be a horrible idea in 2 years, and food would have gone to waste if I had gotten that walk in pantry. As for my red door- who knows what the universe was thinking on that one.
Am the only one with the "What ifs'"? Would you have chosen a different model? Added something? Put in a special request? Chosen a different builder all together? I can't be the only one whose thought these things.
