Area : SQuare feet vs SQuare Meters

AREA - Home Building Timeline refers to area calculations based on SQuare Feet because the primary target-readers live in the United States. SQuare feet for Area and Measurement is a component of the Imperial Measurement System.

Almost all the rest of the world uses the Metric Measurement System, a far superior method.  Metric measurements are easier and faster to determine, and vastly reduce the probability or error.

Balloon Mortgage

Balloon Mortgage : At the end of the initial phase of a sub-prime mortgage, in which monthly payments are kept artificially low, payments expand suddenly, overnight or &Quot;balloon&Quot; to many times the original payment amount. Those people who borrow such a Balloon Mortgage find themselves unable to make the very high payments each month, and are forced into foreclosure. Be here warned to NEVER become part of such a financial arrangement.

BEADS Keystone

BEADS Keystone on the Home Building Timeline described, beginning at H-10, implemented at L-10.

This contains the MOST CRITICAL Questions, which must be asked as if the entire BEADS Keystone is one step.

This is the most critical aspect of site selection, and construction. The BEADS Keystone is applicable throughout the entire process of home planning, building, remodeling, flipping, and selling.

Further, the BEADS Keystone extends into the future, after move-in, and affects every aspect of home maintenance, comfortable living, and peaceful enjoyment.

Stop and Think

 

Stop, and Think on the Home Building Timeline EVERYWHERE.

&Quot;Thinking&Quot; is the second least-used tactic in the planning and construction process. The first least-employed tactic is stopping to do it.

Building anything dwelling-related is a hurried, high-pressure, higher-expectations, highest-emotional-state experience. 'Reason' is replaced by anxiety; and bad decision-making follows, naturally. The cure is to give yourself a moment to consider options. So, stop and think.

 

Learn these phrases and use them often:

 

&Quot;This doesn't seem right. I need some time to think about it.&Quot;

 

&Quot;Let's look at that more closely.&Quot;

 

&Quot;How can we fix this problem?&Quot;

 

Gain the high ground in any situation by seizing the moment to stop and think.

Concerning every aspect of this project :

If you're unsure, stop and become certain.

If a thing is unknown to you, stop and learn about it.

When a mistake is made, by you or others, stop and find of a solution.

The key word is STOP. Don't worry if people around you are impatient. Stand firm, as you actively seek positive solutions. -AB
