About This Quiz
Are you ready to take on building your dream home? Well then this is the quiz for you! Getting to the point of taking your dreams and making them a reality is such an empowering moment in life. It can also be so fun! Getting to hand pick every little thing that goes into that house, the land it sits on, and the people who enter it is a special privilege. So take the time to really plan things out, hire the right people, and not go overboard with things you don't really need.
But of course, dream homes aren't always just about what you need. They are also about what you want. The things you want and how you go about making the decisions give good insight into other things in your life that you want. For example, we might be able to guess when you'll get married. Age is really just a number, but for a lot of people, they put a number on when they want to be married by. Whatever the reason for this is, no one really knows when they'll meet the one. But if you take this quiz and design your dream home, we can guess what age you'll be married by!
