     If you find superior items at prices lower than your intended items, you may be able to modify your plans to take advantage. For example, if you have hardwood flooring available at $6.50 per square foot installed, and find ceramic tile you like for an installed cost of $4, you may consider reducing the hardwood and increasing the ceramic tiled areas in your plan. You just have to think “out of the box”.

     Owner-builder Kevin C. bought transom windows priced at $300 for $75 each and saved some money versus his intended budget. Not a problem to adapt the size. He remarks: “It used to be that windows were made to fit the openings. Now openings are made to fit the windows.”

     House designer Dale Booth tells of a client who got a granite countertop, a 5’x8’ slab of green Vermont granite for $1.50 a square foot. They revised their design to include a kitchen island of that size.
