Our Home

7/18/16 ~FOR SALE- PRICE REDUCED   $575,000~Check it out on forsalebyowner.com ~ zillow.com or Trulia.com ~ Or contact me via email~ gateaumaison@yahoo.com ~~~   We built our home nine years ago, with the mind-set that it would be a breeze, a fun process and of course a great learning experience….(painful grin)..Well??? I remember when we first brought our pool contractor to the empty site to inspect the ground for the pool, hearing him say…”When my Wife and I built our home, we nearly got a divorce over it!” I thought to myself,…huh? Now that’s just crazy! My thoughts about it while building ?  Trust me this!….It can really put a marriage to the test! Now I’m not saying everyone will have a bad building experience, and not that ours was bad, just very challenging at times, and way more time consuming and work then you initially map out in the beginning. It’s not something to go into blindly.  In the end, as you can see we have a beautiful home that we’re very happy with. If you’re thinking about building your own home, please keep in mind that it’s not for the faint of heart! Be sure to do plenty of research. Take your time and shop around for a reputable contractor.  Get everything in writing! Oh! And don’t forget the wine!!!!  Cheers!
