Building a custom home can be among the most exciting experiences in life. Not only do you get the opportunity to move into your dream home, but you get to create the perfect house for you and your family. You’ll have the perfect amount of space, all the right amenities, and the style that looks and feels like you. Check out the process for building a custom home, from imagination to reality.
Start with Paper
The first step to building your custom home is by writing down your plans. Make a list of your requirements, your needs, your wants, and desires. Split up the list to determine what is necessary and what you can stand to do without, if necessary. Much of these decisions will be determined by your budget so make sure that you put that number on the top of the page to ensure that you’re dreaming within your limits.
Check out your favorite magazines, television shows, and websites to gather the inspiration for the look and design of your custom home. Create mood boards for each room. Think about the layout, colors, and textures that you’d want to incorporate in your home. Also, consider the way that your home will function and the flow from room to room.
Find a Contractor
Do your research and find a contractor who you’ll enjoy working with. Ask your friends and family members for their recommendations and do your independent research online. Be sure to come to the table with all your important questions, timeline, and budget. Keep all lines of communication as clear as possible so that you’re always informed throughout the home building process. Get it all down on paper and be sure to read through the contracts thoroughly before you sign. Remember that you aren’t just a client – be a part of the process from start to finish.
