We had spent hours walking around looking at the type of front lights, so we knew what we wanted.

We knew in advance that we did not want a roman shower, vertical blinds, an oven, or a refrigerator. We later got the refrigerator and oven much cheaper at Best Buy, and we got ADO-wraps instead of vertical blinds at another store that sells them.

Our house had some common options, like a golf cart garage and an expanded lanai, so we knew we wanted those.

We knew what type of cabinets we wanted by looking at model homes.

When it came to choosing carpet and tile colors, my mind went blank because they all looked the same. Fortunately, my wife came through and made some great choices.

We did not like granite for the countertops and thought we wanted Corian instead, but our designer Nicole said that a large sink would be more expensive with Corian. She pointed out that we could get beautiful porcelain counters with a large sink for just a few hundred dollars more than Corian, so we took it. We are thrilled with our choices.
What is a porcelain counter? Is that the same as marble?
Happiness is when your life on the outside matches your life on the inside.
