Goldilocks and the three builders

I mentioned last time that we're once again trying to build a new home.  Since we've already got a pretty good idea what floor plan we'll be using, our next step is to choose a local custom home builder after the guy we'd been planning to use retired on us.  We compiled a short list of three builders who were recommended by friends or whose work we'd seen & liked on the Parade of Homes.  We interviewed all three of them this week, and while we haven't selected one yet, I wanted to share our initial thoughts about each one.  If you're looking to build a home near Lincoln, Nebraska, hopefully this info will help you.

New acreage: take two

A lot has happened in the 18 months since I last wrote about our plans to build a new house on our 3-acre lot just outside town.  A lot of things changed during that time, and we think we're going to be able to see it through to completion this time.
