The Process of Designing Your Custom Home
A lot goes into building a custom home, and nothing is predesigned. This means you will face hundreds of options coming at you all at once, and it can be overwhelming.
Here are several factors to consider before you get started.
- Finding land to build on – The location of your lot will determine the structural and aesthetic guidelines and limitations for your custom home. Is the lot large enough for what you envision? Will your builder have to demolish an existing home or structure? Does the property slope? If you have already selected land for your new home, you will want to take advantage of the lot’s best features and maximize any views.
- Designing your dream home – Once you know what land you will be building on, the fun of creating your dream home begins. The options are endless. Research different design styles and pick two or three that interest you.
- What features should it have – Compile the main features your home should have. How many bedrooms do you want, and what size should they be? Would you like to have an outdoor entertainment space? Should the kitchen have a butler’s pantry? Would you like a fitness or yoga room, a home theater, or a temperature-controlled wine room?
- Be forward-thinking – When planning a custom-built home for your family, you will want it to last for generations. Will you need room for children and grandchildren? Do you plan to live in the home throughout your golden years without the need for remodeling? These are just a few of the factors that a custom home builder will help you consider.
