Even if your budget can’t afford it all at once, there is no harm in dreaming big. In fact, we encourage it. When our clients allow themselves to think about all of the “extras” they might want, it helps them to think about the project in the long-term instead of just being focused on where things stand in the here-and-now. That’s important because you don’t want your project to be non-adaptable to your future.
Ask yourself: What are some of the features that don’t fit into our budget right now, but that we might want down the road?
Answering this question will ensure you aren’t short-changing your future. You don’t want to leave something out just because it doesn’t fit into your existing budget when you will be able to afford it down the road.
Here are just some of the features that might be on your want list for the future…
• Outdoor kitchen
• Additional landscaping
• Paver Patio
• Outdoor lighting
• Swimming pool
• Water features
