This was a new term for me. Do you know what it means? Here's a definition I have come up with.
value engineering [val-yoo en-juh-neer-ing]: noun. A method of thought that makes you realize you can't afford what you want. See: expensive taste; soul crusher. "We need to consider some options for value engineering because what you want is actually completely out of your budget; you need to be realistic."
Ok, maybe that was a little dramatic. But if I'm being honest, our most recent meeting kind of bummed me out. It was as if Hilary from Love it or List it just revealed our asbestos invasion and scrapped the plans for the en suite, kitchen island, and home office in one fell swoop.
