Building a house = shopping

…and it is the biggest shopping binge you’ve ever gone on. You know how you hem and haw about spending $10, $100, $1,000 on various things in your life? Well, when you build a house this goes out the window – you are constantly “buying” very expensive things with money that does not feel like real money, aka the green stuff. And these purchases come one after another without pause. It’s all about tring to meet the budget and the need to make a decision and move forward.

Also, everything seems to come in increments of about $1k. Hence, you’ve saved $1k on your roof? Well, that’s funny because your appliance budget just went over by that same amount.

Anyhoo, this is from our latest “shopping trip”:

The Futuro “Plane” wall mounted kitchen hood
-Has a sucking power of 940 CFM. That’s for Scott.
-Also has clean lines and square edges. That’s for me.

    I totally remember this feeling. I think we spent over $30,000 at Home Depot in 2004, and that was almost all in increments of $150 or so for the house!

    But we lived on Freebird’s burritos that year too!
