I recently talked to a lady about a whole house renovation. This was a young mother, who intended to raise her family in this house that she had just purchased with her husband. She told me this was her one chance to do everything she wanted. I knew immediately that she wanted to do much more than what she anticipated her cost would be. I listened and took notes and told her I would do my best to come up with a price within the amount she wanted to spend.
I left and pondered on the predicament, which is a common theme that I experience every week.
I’m actually building my own house soon. I have a budget and I have a wish list. Of course, my wish list is bigger than my budget. But this is my dream. It’s where I want, and how I want, to raise my family. So, I have begun to design for the future. I want to do so in a way that I invest my money wisely.
I want to build a product that fulfills the dreams of my customers the same way I am building for myself.

Some things need to be done in the first phase. These are items that would require significant retrofit to do at a later time. In this case, it makes financial sense to perform them in the first phase.
However, there are plenty of upgrades that can be added at a later date and are not invasive to your completed home. Here are some examples of stage building. These are options that do not require excessive retrofit, where you do not have to redo anything, provided you plan for them initially.
· landscaping (soft scape and hard scape)
· irrigation, rain collection
· future outdoor living spaces
· crops or livestock
· fences and decorative gates
· additional cabinets
· additional appliances
