Verification Guidelines

  • Chris Spear


Imagine that you are given the job of building a house for someone. Where should you begin? Do you start by choosing doors and windows, picking out paint and carpet colors, or selecting bathroom fixtures? Of course not! First you must consider how the owners will use the space, and their budget, so that you can decide what type of house to build. Questions you should consider are Do they enjoy cooking and want a high-end kitchen, or will they prefer watching movies in their home theater room and eating takeout pizza? Do they want a home office or an extra bedroom? Or does their budget limit them to a more modest house?
