    We made several mistakes when building and designing our home. We didn’t design an area for a tall cupboard in the utility room for brushes and mops, thanks to the location of windows and doors, we can only have base cabinets. We forgot to include mat wells for the level threshold entries and we live in the country so plenty of muddy boots. We also made a costly mistake when installing real wooden floors in the hallway outside the bedrooms. The wood is noisy and it wakes our sleeping baby every time it’s walked on in the evening.

      Hi Harri, thanks for sharing your experiences as well! Building a home is so hard – and in our case no one really seemed to help us plan ahead! Hopefully your issues will help others with their planning as well.

    Ah! The outlet in the middle of the living room is sooo smart! I never would have thought of that and would have had the cord issue!
