Now, you are at a major advantage because your family would be participating in the construction of your home, so it's less likely that you'll encounter "weirdness" in the home design and decisions. But we've had whoppers here, from a single 75 gallon hot water tank on the second floor that feeds a floor above and a floor below (which generally means the bathroom faucet, tubs and showers have to be on a minimum of 2 minutes before warm water is feed through the pipes) to having 10 electrical outlets and eighteen 6" 75 watt can lights on a single 15 amp circuit.
I could go on and on about all of the repairs and changes I've needed to make to this home for the past 10 years (and in excess of $200k) but I'm sure you get the point. While I absolutely love my home, there have been days when I wished it were not a single, one-off, custom home because it's likely to have been better designed.
Whichever way you go, best of luck!
Seeing as how you have the money to combat a problematic home, I think this speaks volumes to what I could potentially encounter should I enter into this type of venture. Thanks man!
Urban Meyer: We're going to rotate them right away. We don't redshirt here at Ohio State. We're changing that up. We're going to have the culture out here that there's no redshirting. If you don't play here, it's because you're not good enough. It's not because we're holding you back. We're going to recruit the kind of player where we want them on the field right now. That's the approach we took at Florida, and it's the approach we're going to take here.
