If you’re thinking about building a new home on your lot (or one of ours), don’t settle for one of those “cookie-cutter” house plans. Those house plans are just generic plans and are sold from Maryland to California, and every other state in America. You’ve probably even seen those same houses built right around here. In fact, I was visiting my brother in-law in Boulder and I saw the same house in his neighborhood that I saw in Bethesda the other day. It’s brick in the front and vinyl siding on three sides. The house looks like a big red brick box. You know what I’m talking about? Is there one in your neighborhood? Some people refer to them as “McMansions”, I refer to them as “bull s*it boxes”!!
