This^^^ all this when it comes to builders who say they are custom pick 1,2, or 3 options or true custom builders where you go to store fronts, find shit online, drawl it etcWhen doing a custom home, you don't realize how much time that takes. If your buying from a developer, you have a few choices for colors and cabinets etc. When you go custom, you have an infinite amount of choices. Going into this thing, I had no idea how much time would be spent on choosing all this stuff.
The first build I did a few years back was that, pick a floor plan, pick from 1-3 basic options or another 1 or 2 top shelf selections.
This go round I’m doing full custom. Plans drawn up from scratch based loosely off a few different floor plans we walked and liked, submit to engineer, rework etc. we haven’t even gotten into all the options lol. It’s a train wreck and the only thing keeping it on course is that the wife and I have very similar wants/taste.
You nailed it, time consuming is an understatement and everything I ask the builder is joking answered with….sure I can do that it’s only money hahahaha thankfully he’s a family friend and is working OT to keep us on the right track
