Before You Begin Building Your Home
Building a custom home can be a daunting task! The first steps in this process come before the home needs will be built. Preliminary planning should include the following actions:
Make a budget
Now that you’ve finally decided to get started on your new home, it’s important to first setup a budget so you can get a ballpark figure you’d like to spend on your new custom home. Budget guidelines should take into account the area you’d like to build, the price of land in the areas you’re considering, and the price of newly constructed homes in those areas. Some handy tools are available, such as a budget calculator to help you with the number crunching. Decide on any extra luxuries such as home automation, landscaping, swimming pool, outdoor kitchen, and the like that would add thousands of dollars to a typical project. Also keep in mind inspection fees, building permits, and associated closing costs.
Determine a timeframe
As a custom home builder, Construct-All USA certainly understands and takes into account your personal goals when it comes to a timeframe for completion of your home. This is one of our most common questions: How long is it going to take? The answer is that it depends. There are several factors that can affect the timeframe to build a custom home. Some items to take into account include the size and type of the home that’s going to be built, the complexity of the building plan, weather, and the local building department who will be in charge of inspections.
Find a property for your new home
A custom home builder such as Construct-All USA generally has areas or developments in progress where we are contracted to build certain homes in the subdivision. We also take on projects outside of those developments for customers who may have their own property they’d like to use.
When looking for land to build your home on, it’s important to take into consideration the geography of the area. For example, is it close enough to your place of work, friends and family, and part of town or county where you’d like to be.
Is it close enough to the things you like to be near such as great schools, shopping, church, hospitals, and the like. Also consider whether or not sidewalks and “walkability” are important to you and your family and choose appropriately.
Designing Your Custom Home
Designing your new home presents an exciting opportunity for most people because you’re now able to fit your needs to a perfect design that’s all you! In this stage, you can decide the type of spaces that best fit you and your family’s lifestyles. When starting the design stage, make sure to consider the following:
Size of your new custom home. How many bedrooms and bathrooms do you need? Do you need an office space, a hobby room, or a workout area? Maybe a large laundry room with plenty of folding and sorting space is at the top of your list. Getting specific with the types of rooms you need will greatly help when sitting down with an architect or your custom home builder.
Determine a general layout. It’s good to go into this with an idea of how you would like your rooms to be situated. Will it be a 2 o 3 story home or would you prefer one level? Once you have a general idea of the layout, you have a great start to getting your design drafted by your architect or custom home builder.
Special Features. Be sure to let your builder or architect know if you’d like any special features in your new home, such as fireplaces, heated floors, window sizes and preferences and the like.
Once you’ve completed this step in the pre-build phase, you’re ready to speak to an architect or your custom home builder to move onto the next phase of the project!
