Best Way to Navigate the Building Process
With our custom home-building services on your side, you’ll move through all the following steps to bring your dream home to life.
1. Define Your Ideal Budget
A well-defined budget helps guide all your custom home-building decisions, so it’s definitely the first step. Unlike a traditional home purchase, there are many different pieces of the puzzle to factor into your budget.
You will need to think about the total cost of the:
- Custom home plans
- Building materials
- Construction labor
- Interior decorating
As your custom home builder, we can help you figure out what costs to expect. Just share your vision with our team and we’ll start crunching the numbers on your behalf. If needed, you can then make changes to your plans to bring your project into your ideal budget range.
2. Choose the Perfect Plans and Location
With your budget in mind, you can start looking for a lot to buy for your dream home build. You may want to find your preferred home plans first though, so you know just what to look for in a property.
From there, you’ll want to decide:
- The minimum size of the lot for your home
- How close you’d like to live to your nearest neighbors
- If you’d like a view of the waterfront, trees, or cityscape
- The ideal slope of the land and other key characteristics
- The direction of the property for the best natural light
Then, start searching for a property that meets your expectations and aligns with your budget. Don’t forget to have our custom home builders review the property before you put in your offer. We’ll help ensure that the land meets your zoning, utility, and other requirements.
3. Design Your Dream Home
Upon selecting your lot, it’s time to start designing your dream home from the ground up. You’ll want to start by selecting your base house plans and then building upon that design to make it all your own.
We work with both House Plan Zone and Madden Home Design to give you plenty of excellent options to consider. From French Quarter Houses to Ridge Crest Plans, our partners have a little something for everyone.
Plus, we’re happy to alter the layout any way you wish to ensure it works for your needs. Want to add a sunroom to the back of the house? Our team can make that happen. Prefer a master bath designed as a full wet room? We can do that, too.
The sky is the limit in how you design your home. You’ll get to decide which features and finishes to add throughout, so you’re sure to love the results. You can even have our team handle the interior decorating to ensure your home is 100% ready for you to enjoy at move-in.
4. Follow the Building Process
After finalizing your plans, our team will create the project timeline and help you understand what to expect through every stage. You can then follow our progress through BuilderTrend to watch as your dream home comes to life.
