Are you looking to start building a custom home this fall? There’s no time to waste. Winter is coming soon and can put a real cramp in your plans. But before you can break ground and look forward to hidden doors behind trick bookcases or a wine cellar, there are a few things you need to figure out first.


Money is important. It will determine how much you can afford in terms of design. It’ll also help you narrow down where you can build. But those factors are more often budget concerns. Bigger financial questions pop up in the form of in how you’re going to pay for everything. forget about closing costs, either.


You need to carefully consider the needs of your entire house because funds aren’t unlimited. You will need to build in extra room in your budget for unexpected problems or surprises that may affect how long it takes to raise your custom home.

A Vacant Lot

You can build on a lot that you select for yourself, or one that we help you find. What laws control how big your house can get? That is an important question that you can’t overlook. You also need to find out what you can do with your land – can you dig an opening for a swimming pool? What about adding fences? There are many considerations you need to take into account.
