Location to Build Custom Home
One of the first things that you will want to do is choose your property. Selecting a property that you want to build on can be trickier than you may think. You will want to pick a property that works with your lifestyle. You will want to consider how close it is to schools, gas stations, grocery stores, and freeways. Everyone has a different opinion about how close they want to live to these conveniences.
Future Proof Your Custom Home
When most people build a custom home they are not planning on reselling it anytime soon. Make sure that you not only think about what your needs are right now, also think about what your needs are going to be 5-10 years from now. Add the rooms that you really will need to your home so that it can accommodate you throughout the years.
Consider Features when Building a New Home
Many people that are having a custom home built get in decision overload a few different times throughout the process. When you reach the point where you feel like you simply cannot make one more decision find a way to reset emotionally. Do not make decisions out of haste. Do not allow someone to influence your decisions because you are having a bad day. You will have to live with these decisions for years to come. Take your time and make the right choice for you!
As you go through the process of building it is extremely hard to stay exactly on budget. Even the best laid plans do not work out as originally intended on every single level. You will want to allow yourself some wiggle room in your budget for things that pop up as the project goes on. Most builders recommend that you add a minimum of 10% of your overall construction budget for this very thing.
