Somehow I deleted this post and I know I shouldn't say this but it was one of my best. It went along these lines:
Building is a slow and complex process. Some people will not deal with it well, getting frustrated and angry, making it painful for themselves, their family, their builder, and sometimes me their blog audience. They are likely to enter their home with negative feelings, which is really sad because your home is such and important place, probably the most important place in your life. An alternative way is to expect problems and delays, from this position you can only be pleasantly surprised. The final outcome is likely to be the same via either path - a beautiful home - but the journey can be a positive or negative one.
Now one would need to be the Buddha or Gandhi to not get frustrated from time to time, and I am realistic enough to know that I will fall onto the negative side from time to time, but I will strive to stay positive.
