Ever since I got married ten years ago, it’s always been a dream of ours to build a house of our own. After saving and scrimping for over ten years, our dream was finally a reality. My husband is an architect and a contractor, so he was able to do a lot of the work, but he left the windows to the professionals at D&D Windows.
My husband said that the only things he refuses to work with are glass and tile. I’m not sure why, but I think that maybe he had an incident a while back involving those two things. Either way, I didn’t mid because I knew D & D Windows was a great company that would make sure our windows, and by extension, our home would look great.
I was really challenged with the house because we had saved and waited so long, it was hard to believe we were about to put the finishing touches on it. Even though I’m not an architect or a contractor, my husband still made sure I was very much a part of the process of building our home. I got to select many of the vendors we chose and I also got to chose the colors and materials for most of the house with my husband. I am lucky that we have similar tastes, and when we don’t, we’ve learned how to compromise.
