Things you can do later?
What are some things that can be done later that would save a bit of money when building? I'm thinking things we could possibly do ourselves...being realistic in that it can't be anything too important to function because it wouldn't get done for a while. ;-) Something we could maybe do using money from a tax return.
I know there are some things we must have to meet the regulations of having a mortgage. Does anyone know if that varies lender to lender or if there is a basic list somewhere? We might have the option of taking out a farm loan and alleviate that problem altogether but it would be at a slightly higher interest rate, which we would rather not do.
One thing I wish we had more money for is wider trim. So now I am wondering if we would be better off not doing any trim right now and doing it later. Thoughts on this? Would that be a terrible idea? Would it make it harder to deal with flooring/door installs and such? Hmmm Maybe I should ask the builder what the difference in cost would be for wider trim. If only just in the main living areas of the house.
Sorry for getting sidetracked. So any suggestions on things we could do later?
