I remember my first “a-ha” moment when deciding to make some improvements to my home.  After installing a new kitchen counter top, new floor tile and upgraded appliances, a few months later I turned to my spouse and said, “It looks beautiful, but it hasn’t really change the space. It’s still the same house.”

CH_WA_120809_0320_MSometimes we end up spending time and money only to realize we are just covering up the problem.  It’s sort of like putting lipstick on a pig, which, according to Wikipedia, states that making cosmetic changes is a futile attempt to disguise the true nature of a product. Ouch!

CH_MC_131029_0150_MMaybe you can identify. What is the true nature of your home? Does it or can it function the way you want it to?  If not then you may consider looking at a Charter home where every home is created with specific design principles. It’s amazing what thoughtfully planned spaces and natural light can do.  With 20 percent more windows that are 30 percent larger, you’ll not only see the difference, but you’ll feel it.  That’s what one of our new homeowners just wrote us:

“I believe what really sticks out for me is the amount of natural light and the sight lines. Even though my house isn’t on a Southern exposure, it has plenty of natural light and was the #1 item on my Wish List. The floor plan is perfect for our lifestyle and makes our 3000 SF home feel larger.”

So if you aren’t getting the results you are looking for, don’t be discouraged! Before you spend another penny and countless hours trying to make your home into something that it can never be, take a look at all of the floor plan options we offer by visiting www.charterhomes.com.  We promise a place that not only is beautifully designed but one that works for the way you want to live today.
