But I had wanted to build my own dream home. 'q'hat's when I found Plantations and its builder, Country Life Homes. "Plantations is such a lovely place to live. And everyone at Country Life -- from the receptionists to the sales people to the construction supervisor -- was so easy to work with, it made the building experience fun. "My home was built exactly the way I wanted it: Living room large and open, master bedroom private, on one side of the house, guest bedrooms on the other; my kitchen space large, airy and easy to work in.
