Building a new custom home to realize your dream home is an exciting project, and you want it to be the best custom home building experience ever. We get it. At Robin Ford Builders, we have plenty of experience in custom home building. We know how to take the stress out of the home building process so that you can enjoy turning your dream home into a reality. Here is an essential checklist of the most important things during the custom home building experience!
Develop Your Custom Home Goals and Requirements
Start by establishing the number of bedrooms and bathrooms that you wish to have. Figure out what your must-have items are for your new custom home. Separate those from your “wish-list” items. Begin to set some goals for your project and rank them in order of importance. Which od do you care about the most? This will help you understand what’s more relevant to you so that you can budget and spend accordingly.
Organize Your Inspiration
Collect photos and make a vision board before you begin the design discussions with your custom home builder. Pinterest is an excellent resource for this.
After figuring out the size and type of custom home that you wish to build, financing will be the very next step. Your builder should then be able to help you with any financing options to meet your criteria.
Lot and Location Selection
You will want to find the correct lot for your dream home before anything else. So, now you must decide what is important to you? Is it the view, proximity to schools, shopping, dining, or work? Will the space be adequate for the footprint of the custom home design that you’ve got in mind? Your builder can assist you with these decisions by helping you find a price range to meet your standards and requirements.
In a larger scale project such as this, with so many different people working to help achieve your dream, it’s vital to be flexible. Delays happen, and mistakes might be made. However, understanding ahead of time and working hard on communication will help you minimize issues and cope with them if they do arise.
