If you want to live in a house made for you, a custom home builder can make your vision a reality. However, there are a lot of factors to consider, and decisions to make, before you can begin building your dream home. Here are some tips on what to do before you begin building a custom home.
The first thing you should do is gather inspiration. You can find pictures of homes that you like on the internet. Even better, you can find photos of complete homes, inside and out, on realtor websites. These photos are great because you can see everything in the home, from room shape to the tiles used throughout the home.
While a builder can work from scratch, it is better to come to them with an existing plan. It saves a lot of time, and the builder can make changes to the plan instead of making something completely new.
Another thing you need to do is have the land you are building on assessed. There may be factors that result in changes to your plan, such as needing to build retaining walls. The builder will look at this and any local code restrictions to adjust your home as necessary.
