When it’s time to build a custom home, you have many decisions to make. For one thing, you need to decide if you want to rely on a lot that you have selected or on one suggested by the builder you’ve chosen as your partner. It can be complicated and confusing and time-consuming when you’re not sure what to do, especially if you’re only familiar with remodeling or renovation projects but not full-on construction.
Bring Your Dreams to Life
With a custom home, you have a blank canvas to create the house of your dreams. Research on the Internet, Think about the trends in home design that you’ve always wanted, such as hidden rooms, the walk-in pantry, kitchen islands, or even a hidden library behind a revolving bookcase. Make a list however you want – on paper, on your phone, or your computer. It all starts here.
Put Together a Wish List
Now the time has come to make your wish list into a reality. A spreadsheet can help make this step much more manageable. Make one column for necessities, one for luxuries, and one for what you would like to have if money were no object. Everything that you need to have, such as utilities and bathrooms and kitchens and electrical outlets should go into the necessities table. For wine cellars and artwork and decoration, those can go under luxuries, especially if you want to have a housewarming party that doesn’t just involve pizza and chips. Finally, think about what you would have if you didn’t need to stick to a budget. That way, if you were utterly unconstrained, you could build your real dream house.
Work with Expert Builders
Finally, think about what you need to do to get everything done. One way to complete this step is to find the best builders you can and work with them. You’ll be able to plan out a smart budget, figure out a timeline for completion of the project, and know what to expect in case other problems pop up and present setbacks. Your journey starts with consultation appointments, especially if you have questions about windows, roofing, siding, and foundations!
