What Goes into Building a Custom Home?

Building a custom home is a process, and it is well worth the wait!

A custom home is an inexpensive way to get everything you’ve ever wanted for your home. That said, you might be curious about the process. Here are some of the tasks you need to complete before you can start moving.

Securing Financing

The cost of your custom home is calculated based on the lot where the house is located and what you plan on including inside it. Securing financing is a key part of achieving your goals, so be sure that you know what your credit score is, are able to make a decent down payment between 20 and 25%, and keep extra cash on hand in case any problems delay completion of the project.

Finding a Builder

Now that you’ve got the money, you need a custom home builder you can trust. Get some price quotes, and review portfolios of past work to be sure the prospective partner is a good fit for you. Getting relevant references wouldn’t hurt, either.

Location, Location, Location

The location of your new custom home matters, too. Take a tour of the lot with the architect and the builders who will be bringing your new home to life. They’ll be able to help you identify any potential issues that can complicate the construction process.

Planning the Details

Details seem like little things, but you can’t overlook them. Remember that the budget is all the money you have, so you may have to lower your expectations. What is the project schedule? How will you pay for everything if you are doing so in installments? These questions are just as important as figuring out what toilets and sinks you want in the bathroom or lights and cabinets you want in the kitchen.


The last part of the process is the construction. Once construction has begun, your dream home should be ready in a few months. Enjoy!
