Few things are more exciting than building your dream home from the ground up. The sky is the limit when it comes to custom home construction; everything from the location to the design details is within your control.
Though the possibilities are nearly endless, there are a few best practices to help you avoid the most common mistakes people make during the design/build process. We want your experience building your new home to be seamless, so we’ve compiled the five most common pitfalls you’ll want to avoid when building a custom home.
Not Researching Before Buying a Lot
Found a plot of land in the perfect location?
Make sure to research local restrictions, environmental regulations and potential site challenges before buying land. You’ll also want to determine how much prepping the site for home construction will cost. Knowing these pieces of information will help assure that you’ll actually be able to build your dream home on a lot.
Putting Design Ahead of Budget
Knowing the major features you want in your custom home is important, but a preliminary budget should always come before the final design.
A great design/build firm will establish your budget with you in the earlier stages of their custom home design process to ensure things flow seamlessly.
Not Taking The Property Into Account
The size, shape and slope of your lot can affect what kind of home you’re able to build on a specific lot. Consider this when choosing a lot, or be open to altering your design if the foundation presents restrictions.
Choosing the Wrong Builders
