Congrats! If Darling Husband and I could build we would have, and will likely consider it down the road.

Did you do any digging into the builder’s background/referrals? My parents built their first home a couple years ago. They have absolutely no regrets, but one thing they were glad to have done was research their builder in a big way. They almost went with a different one and luckily were able to find out he was having financial problems which could have created a few big problems as one of his recent developments had leins on it or something.

I think a custom home with upgrades etc. done the way you want them is definitely worth the wait! Fingers crossed you can get in without delays.

Building can be tough. So many things can change within that time frame.  Is there a way that you can put a clause in the contract to revisit finishes as they put them in? your tastes and styles could change in that time period.
