How picking the ‘almost perfect’ plan can work for you

When you begin to explore building your very own two storey home, you think about the three easy steps you’ll need. Finance, land, and home design. How much fun! And it sounds simple enough, right? But then you get caught up trying to choose – not to mention agree – on the perfect design for that perfect block and what happens if you haven’t been able to find one and take too long?
