I’m struggling to pick out XYZ [counters, paint colors, etc.].

WHY I WROTE ‘THE SIMPLIFIED HOME BUILD’ BOOK
YOU AREN’T ALONE! I remember the exact moment during my custom home build when I felt like I couldn’t keep going. I was SO completely overwhelmed … and stretched thin physically and emotionally. I had two young daughters at the time and a husband who all needed me … plus the seemingly full-time job of making decisions for our new home.
I was exhausted, overwhelmed, and realized (through tears) in that raw moment that I wanted (needed) HELP! I wanted someone to bounce ideas off of. I wanted someone to tell me that it was going to be ok … that I would get through this … that I was doing a good job. I wanted someone to guide me through the decision making process.
I decided to call a local designer for help … she never returned my calls.
I decided to meet with another local designer. Her taste in decor was EXPENSIVE! I couldn’t work with her because I felt like I had to defend my budget (she didn’t make me feel bad … it was an internal issue).
So I was back to square one. Overwhelmed, exhausted, and longing for a guide.
I did end up ‘working’ with another local interior designer; simply to bounce ideas off of and to order ‘to the trade’ items through. However, I am SO glad I ended up designing 99% of my house on my own because I am very proud of how MY CUSTOM HOME turned out!
I know YOU can do the same thing … all you need is a little guidance and confidence!

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING …
“I finished your E-design book a few weeks ago and I LOVED it! I have pretty much read all your blog articles b/c you are my inspiration lol. There was definitely some new information and I loved the presentation as well as the spreadsheets! Having allll the information from your blog in one, well-written and seamless format is amazing. It’s SO much easier than trying to navigate a blog and skipping all over the place and not knowing if I’m getting everything. This material will be helpful as we go through selections!” – Carrie
I loved your book! I loved having all your great advice in one document! – Donna
Honestly, your book is the best that I’ve found on the market!!! I’m at a point where I don’t even know where to begin so it has been a lifesaver. It’s such a helpful, user-friendly resource. So many of the home build books are based off of renewable energy homes, crazy architectural designs or tiny homes! I am definitely recommending this to all my friends who are thinking of building. There truly isn’t anything on the market like it! – Gabrielle
FAQ ABOUT ‘THE SIMPLIFIED HOME BUILD’
Please feel free to ask any questions in the comments below! I’m sure others will have the same questions as you and benefit from the answers :)! I’ll go ahead and answer my top two questions …
(1) IS THIS BOOK AVAILABLE IN A HARD COPY?
No. At this point, I offer the book in a digital PDF format only. You can save this printable file on your computer, phone or tablet. You can read it on all three of these devices and you can print out all (or some … whatever you want) of the pages! You’re in charge!
(2) IS THE CONTENT DIFFERENT FROM YOUR BLOG?
The content does have some overlap with my blog … however, the information is organized in a way that allows you to get from point A (overwhelmed and unsure of your design decisions) to point B (confidently making educated design decisions) much faster!
The book contains all the information you need (in the correct order) so you don’t have to sift for hours through my blog trying to find information. Also, every chapter has a guided ‘Action Sheet’ designed (no pun intended!) to help you really think about and consider your design decisions.
