Can someone tell me other ways to solve this one.

builder.py
import pathlib

def get_root():
    root = pathlib.PurePath(
        input("What's the full path where you'd like the project? ")
    )
    if not root.is_absolute():
        return pathlib.PurePath("/" + str(root))

This is what I did:

def get_root():
    root = pathlib.PurePath(
        input("What's the full path where you'd like the project? ")
    )
    if not root.is_absolute():
        root = os.path.abspath(root)
    return root
