Building Your Family an Ideal Forever Home
July 8, 2021
Building a new home can be a stressful time, but if you’ve been an Ideal Homes & Neighborhoods homeowner before… it can be full of excitement.
Mandi and Chinedum Ezugha have amazing memories in their first Ideal Home. They built the Frederickson floor plan back in 2017, in Valencia. They found out they would be welcoming twin girls shortly after, and quickly became a family of four. The Edmond neighborhood was the perfect spot for this growing family. “We love that the neighborhood is quiet and has many amenities that our family can enjoy- especially the play areas,” Mandi says. “We also love the location of the neighborhood and that we are so close to everything, shopping, dining, doctors, highways, etc.”
Since that time, the Ezugha family has outgrown their former home. But Mandi says they knew they wanted to build their forever home with Ideal Homes. “I love houses, I have my degree in interior design and out of all local builders, your (Ideal Homes & Neighborhoods) floor plans are my favorite! I fell in love with the Queensbury floor plan, it’s perfect! I can’t believe we will be living in our dream home soon,” says Mandi. “Also- the whole process of building seems a bit daunting, but with Ideal, you made the process so easy and enjoyable that it was a no brainer that we would return for our forever home.”
Mandi and Chinedum are most excited about all the additional space their new home will provide. Who wouldn’t be, with their third daughter expected in October? Though they are not first-time home buyers anymore, they offer a bit of advice for those in the market. “Enjoy the process; home buying/ building can be stressful, but Ideal really does a great job of listening to your needs and making things easy,” Mandi says. “Also, if you are building, make a list of your needs and wants and prioritize each. You’ll likely need to revise upgrades to fit your budget and knowing what you need vs. what you may just want will make this easier. It’s smarter to upgrade on the things that are more permanent and harder to replace; things like flooring or countertops as opposed to door handles and light fixtures. Those little things can add up fast but are easier and less expensive to replace gradually on your own.”
Cheers to a new home full of new memories. Welcome back Ezugha family!
