If you are thinking about building a custom home the team here at Construct-All USA, Inc. has some important construction data and facts for you. When building a new home one of the biggest concerns for the up and coming homeowners is how long it will take to complete the build with another grave concern being that of final cost.
Every home construction project is unique with most new constructions taking anywhere from three to possibly nine months to bring the build to completion. There are a variety of items that can have an impact on how long it may take to build your custom home, some of which we are going to discuss here.
Steps in Building a Custom Home
The Size of your New Home – The size of your new home can certainly contribute to the time it takes to build. Larger sized homes require a whole lot more materials and labor to build them. However, once you have completed your consultation process and we have put a floor plan in place for your new build, then rest assured our team of professionals will be able to provide you with an effective timeline and schedule as well as a project completion date. At the end of the day we can say for sure that size truly matters.
Your Customizing Options – Every home starts out with a floor plan; however, the advantage of a custom-built home is that it can be designed, created and built to your specific taste, desires and needs. Many homeowners who choose to build a custom home often make a variety of changes to the basic floor plans that are initially put in place which ultimately impacts the time it takes to bring the project build to completion. The more complex the changes are, the longer it will take to build and finalize your new home.
The Extent of Needed Pre-Construction Excavation – Depending on the size and condition of the lot you choose to build your home on, additional excavation may be required before the foundation can actually be poured which can cause a delay in the actual construction startup. This will extend the amount of time needed to complete the build of your custom home.
Unexpected Shortage of Building Materials – Builders, from time to time, can run into unexpected material shortages during new constructions. For whatever reason, the availability of certain materials or lack thereof can certainly impact timelines and result in delays.
Finishing Touches to Décor – When you build a custom home it is necessary for you to choose the type of flooring you want, countertops, cabinets, lighting and such. If you fail to make these important decisions in a reasonable amount of time, construction will surely be delayed. Keep in mind that should you choose materials that are outside of the norm, perhaps something exotic or unique, there may be a delay in finding these materials and a delay in having them delivered to the construction site. This, of course, will extend the final completion date.
Ongoing Changes – Having a set layout and building plans in place pre-construction is essential to a smooth, uninterrupted build. If you choose to continually make changes to the original construction plans you can surely disrupt the entire schedule and force your completion date to be extended. Though making a change here or there may be necessary, avoid making excessive changes because it will really put a damper on scheduling and project completion dates.
