There is a fair amount of truth to the fact that first attempts can often be more about what can be learned then what can be done.
The unquestionably first from the ground up house building project was a good example of that truth for me.
I’m thankful that I waited until later in life to take on such a project because I can’t ever see putting myself through that ever again. There were plenty of times I had to hide in the Heating & A/C comfort of our car just to keep our nerves from fraying. There are simply so many details to take care of when one is building a home. The general contractor was not paying the amount of attention needed to the subs so I started doing that. One benefit of the building experience was the fact that I got to think of a good Heating & A/C contractor. The Heating & A/C contractor that ended up doing everything from design to installation was not the general contractor’s option. When I saw the unprofessional manner of the Heating & A/C guy the contractor was going to use, I stopped that. Instead, I interviewed many Heating & A/C contractors prior to settling on the 1 who did the work. That guy was a pro from the hour he showed up to the construction site. The Heating & A/C contractor was prepared, organized plus a good listener. These were all the qualities I was looking for. It was so wonderful to have someone with so much knowledge taking charge of the Heating & A/C part of the build.
