‘Teen Mom’ Kailyn Lowry Says She ‘Hates’ The Process Of Building A House
“Teen Mom 2” star Kailyn Lowry opened up with a question and answer on Instagram about building her house and shared some of her regrets about the process. Lowry admitted that she hated the experience, but said she would like to build another house after having had the learning experience.
The Deleware resident made the warning after a fan asked Lowry about his favorite part of building his own home.
“Well, I don’t have a favorite part. I don’t have one because I hate this process, ”she said. “I thought I would love to build a house. I thought it was going to be so much fun… I thought I was never going to want to stop but I realized I didn’t know this house was going to end up being the house I want to stay in.
“This process and all of it is so different from what I expected,” she continued. “For the foreseeable future, I see myself selling this one and building another house because now I know what to expect and what steps I want, and things like that. So I don’t have a favorite part.
In the second part of his Q&A, Lowry backtracked a bit. She said she could stay in the house she built. If she wants to change anything in the future, she can just renovate it.
Lowry realized that she had made a mistake in deciding the measurements of the rooms on the lower level of her house. In the middle of the process, she asked the builders to stop because she wanted the living room to be bigger.
“I stopped construction to redo the whole ground floor caused a delay of about six weeks,” she said. “In reality, we are looking at January 2022” for the house to be completed.
Lowry regrets another choice she made
Lowry, who has four wires, chose black appliances with copper embellishments. She also chose to go with windows framed in white, but now she wishes she had chosen black.
While she had previously said that she didn’t like the farmhouse as an interior design, she learned that her style is mid-century modern. “I have someone who helps me with my interior design so that everything can be executed correctly,” said the author of “Pride Over Pity”.
When it comes to her walls, she wants to keep things neutral. “I want all the edginess and stuff to be in my tiles, my decor and things like that,” Lowry explained. “I want my walls to remain neutral.
Some fans wanted to know if she was going to have a basement in the new house, but Lowry chose not to have one. She had basements in previous homes she lived in and didn’t use them.
“I never go there and it’s literally just another space to have a mess that I don’t check,” she said. “I don’t know if anyone else is like that Out of Sight, Out of Mind – completely loyal to every part of my life and that includes the basements.”
But his sons will always have a place to gather. Lowry chose to have a pool room instead of a basement. “The pool room will have a pool table and a movie theater for the kids to go to, but it can also be cleaned up and become an adult playroom,” the “Teen Mom 2” star revealed.
Lowry wants his house to be “timeless”
Lowry wanted the house she was building to look timeless. While she is going to have a swimming pool for her family to enjoy, she didn’t want it to be too deep.
“So I think with this house, I think I really want to remember to be timeless,” she said in her Instagram Q&A. “I don’t want to have a very deep pool because I think the older the kids get, nobody really cares about having depth in their pool like that anymore. Based on the two pools I’ve had before they go 6ft deep and I’m comfortable with that.
While his boys – namely Lincoln, 7 – would love to have a slide, Lowry chose not to have these additions in his backyard.
“I don’t slide or dive. I think it’s extra maintenance and more things can break, ”she explained, noting that Lincoln has a toboggan in his father’s house. “I just don’t want to spend the money on a slide and then in five years he doesn’t use it. While I will pass.
Lowry shares his eldest son Isaac, 11, with ex-boyfriend Jo Rivera and Lincoln is from his marriage to Javi Marroquin. Her two youngest sons – Lux, 4 and Creed, 1 – came from her relationship with ex-boyfriend Chris Lopez.
