Selecting the ideal custom home site to build on is one of the main decisions you’ll make throughout the whole process. Different custom home sites can impact the overall layout of your future house, construction costs, and the interaction level you would have with your neighbors. Keep reading these tips when you pick a custom home site in the future.
Wooded Areas for Shade and Privacy
Are you seeking to move into a secluded spot, possibly on the edge of your neighborhood? Wooded sites provide the privacy you want. Also, these sites are perfect for anyone who wants to be slightly secluded from the neighbors without moving to a rural area. Other advantages of wooded custom home sites include a scenic view and improved shade. If you choose this type of custom home site, ensure to consider having a backyard sitting spot too.
Sloping Grounds are Best for Walk-Out Basements
Choosing a custom home site with sloping grounds can be great if you want to include a basement walk-out space. Depending on your needs, these basements have either windows or doors. In addition, walk-out basements offer easy access to your backyard and lots of natural lighting. So, adding these element types to your custom home can transform a traditional basement into a magnificent living space.
Consider Traffic Patterns Near Your Custom Home Site
Will your home lot be near busy roads? What are the traffic patterns? If you live in a secluded area, road expansions will likely not be problematic. However, busy streets can be noisy and less attractive for potential custom home builders. Remember this when searching for a possible site for your custom home.
Ask About Any Restrictions
Besides zoning regulations, certain areas have restrictions that determine your home’s appearance. Also, which activities will take place on your property? Plus, any local building codes or restrictions can also affect the kind of custom home you can build. Fortunately, Robin Ford Building can help you with this information.
