that demonstrate the latest in home construction, design, furnishings and technological innovations. It is expected to attract 100,000 visitors throughout the event. This years theme is The All American Homearama. One of the homes was being built using only American made products. We thought that was pretty cool but never in a million years did we expect to buy that house. Well guess what??? We bought the Made in America house! ( I guess I should say "we are buying", we close in July) Here she is...
As much as I would love to say that the decision was easy, it really wasn't. I went back and forth between this house and the original house we found back in March. Leif didn't sweat it like I did. The truth is, I LOVED both houses. I knew I would be happy with either one and I think that made my decision even harder. There was no cut and dry choice for me. It was truly a unique situation. How often do you have 4 days to find your perfect house, you find not 1 but 2 houses you love, they are in the same neighborhood, built by the same person, basically the same price and to top it off they are on the same street!!! Leif left it up to me...how sweet of him...and after about 18 hours of "thinking" at 9:30 on Saturday morning while standing in line at Starbucks Leif said "make a decision right now" and I did! The biggest deciding factor for me was the pride in owning The Made in America. Knowing that every single item that constructed your home was Made in America is most likely a once in a lifetime opportunity...this is the only home of it's kind on the East Coast and 1 of only a handful in the whole Country. The wood, wires, nails, drywall, tiles, harware, light fixtures etc...ALL Made in America!!! Pretty Cool...Here are some pictures of the house right now. Homearama is in 3 weeks so the house will be finished before then! The builder is going to send me a virtual tour before the judging begins so we are very anxious to see the finished product.
