It sort of depends on your personal taste. There are a lot of window styles that will appeal to some people and other buyers, that won't appeal to others. You just should do what will make you happy. Then hope that the buyers for your home will like them as well. ... more

good answers so far! I think the best thing to ask your lender is do they have experience doing construction loans. They are complicated and there are many ways to do them.There are also non traditional construction loans and builders right now willing to extend terms to increase business. I know of a few builders and private financing sources as well as traditional construction financing . If you have a lender who's experienced they will be able to actually save you the most money long term and they have the resources. If you need help give me a call. ... more

I lived right across the street from a park and I would NEVER do that again. You have people constantly parking in front of your drive way. I almost got hit in my own driveway by someone late to a soccer game. I had to put a gate across my driveway so my kids could play safely during baseball and soccer season. The dump garbage out of their car let their dog use you yard to go to the bathroom. We even had people come up to our door and ask to borrow tools or worse yet use our bathroom. At night you get teenager's hanging out drinking, smoking pot, leaving used condoms around etc.... Being next to the playground was nice at time until summer arrives and the parks department holds classes there and preschools decide your neighborhood park makes a great place for them to visit. 30 plus kids (two classes) with 3 or 4 adults supervising makes you want to head for home. I put a play set in my yard just so I wouldn't have to take my kids there anymore. There are just too many unsupervised kids for me to be comfortable with the whole thing. ... more
