Husband and I are planning to build a 3500 sf, (very modest for our area),custom home and will splurge on some things such as kitchen appliances and countertops, insulation and windows and finish trim and save on other things such as stock cabinets, cheaper flooring in basement and granite remnants for bathrooms counters.
I believe that a beautiful home can be achieved without selecting high end everything.
I'm just curious if any of you who have built or are in the process of building a custom have encountered snobbery on the part of your architect or builder regarding your choices. We have yet to select these professionals and have only seem a glimpse of it with one interview so far but based on my research it seems to be ... not uncommon. I would think that finding the best professional partner not only based on their expertise but also on compatibility would result in a relatively pleasant process and positive outcome. I'm just wondering how much of this we should expect to encounter as we wade into the pool of custom home building.
