Default How many times have you built a new home?

This is our second new build.

We waited 5 years between the first and the second. Don't tell my husband but now that the house is done, I can't help but want to put it up for sale and start all over again Although stressful it's fun for me to pick all those finishes. If I could do it every two years I'd be happy

Really?? I'm shocked for some reason...

This is our 3rd, but only second actually built
First, Urbandale
Second, Mattamy (no-go, but still completed the design process)
Third, Tartan

1st and probably only for me. Although the experience has been pretty smooth, and sometimes even fun, I'm just not cut out for this kind of uncertainty. Of course, every time I move I swear it's the last time. 11 moves and counting... My new place is next to a senior's residence, and a cemetery up the road. Told the kids that'll be my last move, for sure. I know, I know, but my kids are used to me.
