BHI Start Fresh Buy New: Sponsored

Living in a newly built home has probably more benefits than I can even list. Today, thanks to BHI Start Fresh Buy New I have the chance to share my top 3 with you!

1. Energy efficient & lower utility bills
Newly built homes seem to be much more energy efficient. When we moved to our new home, we not only increased our square footage, but we tripled it! We were afraid our bills would skyrocket.  Our electric bill has been only slightly more thanks to our geothermal unit and new energy star-efficient appliances.  
We did ample research on tax breaks and rebates when planning the build and bidding contractors.  We ended up paying only a few thousand more for an energy efficient geo-thermal unit and so far, our utilities have been on par with the research.

2. Customized for a modern family
One of my other favorite benefits to building a new home would be customization. We were able to build the home to suit our needs. We thought about every nook and cranny in the home and what we would use it for. We were able to create the home to fit our needs and room for our family to grow later on down the road. We went with a modern open floor plan; but also made sure every space is it’s own designated area, and can still be made cozy and feel like home.
3. Plenty of storage
We have an abundance of storage in our newly built home. Our master closets are so large they could actually be two more rooms in the home! But this is what we wanted. We have plenty of closet space for odds and ends, and a ready to be finished basement that will have even more closet space!
We wanted a spot for everything…and we will only acquire more stuff throughout our years here and as our family grows!
