It went well - if you have your appointment in kanata, the design centre is really nice (the one in barrhaven is nice too - we went to the open house one sunday). You go over all of the structural changes/upgrades u want to make, plus locations of lights/outlets/etc. It's really fun. Our DC consultant was really honest and told us to wait until we close and do some upgrades ourselves to save money. The only tip I have is to budget for both appointments before you go to the first one...that way you know how much u can afford (i.e. we didn't put extra potlights at the first appointment because we want hardwood flooring at the 2nd appointment).

The 2nd appointment is supposed to be more fun...you pick your flooring, cabinets, countertops, colours.

I was surprised we had/have our appointments so early - maybe that's good news for our block?
