BUILDING YOUR HOME SHOULD BE EXCITING AND ENJOYABLE
…. AND YES, IT CAN ALSO BE INTIMIDATING.
Finding the Right Contractor for your project is valuable, depending on the size could take up to a few years or as little as a few months.
Designing your home is so exciting! Make sure to design your home based on “How you want to use and live in your home”. Entertaining, Dogs, Children, etc.
Choosing a lot, not all designs work on every lot.
Elevationcanchange the look of a home dramatically. Flush with the ground or steps up to the front door, and everything in between.
Roof Stylesare another part of the house that can dramatically change the style and appearance of a home.
The more spread out your home is; chances are the more cost. Typically, it is less expensive to go up than out.
Most people usually experience approximately 20% more than they budgeted.
Higher ceilings usually drive cost and utility bills. Heat typically goes up as Cold typically goes down.
Foundation… just like in life, is very important.
Remember wood is a natural product that expands and contracts.
You should not have to buy stock in Caulk and Paint to cover up every mistake.
“Structure of the Home” This is a very controversial part of the entire building process. Half the people believe since no one “sees” this part and it gets covered up, that cutting corners here and paying as little as possible is acceptable. However, if you are among the many that has owned a house that was build under this mindset, you know how very costly that can be. Think about it…
EVERY SINGLE PART OF A HOUSE ATTACHES TO THIS STAGE! Electric, drywall, cabinets, windows, doors, brick and on. This is the most important phase if you want windows and doors to open and close properly. Walls straight and level, roofs that don’t sag, Solid floors, etc.…
IF IT IS ROUGH AT THIS STAGE; IT WILL BE ROUGH GOING into THE FINISH STAGE.
