You want to design and have built your own custom home. This home is going to contain all the features you have ever wanted in a house, or at least the features you care the most about. Keep in mind that what you desire in your custom house may be a bit different from what can actually be accomplished, so do your part to make sure you stay in great communication with your home builder.
To make sure you don't have any surprises along the way when it comes to your custom home build, make sure to cover the two following concerns with your builder. This way, everyone stays on the same track and you are most likely to have the home turn out just the way you'd like it to.
You have a budget, and this budget includes the home build as well as the property you are building the house on. You have to be clear with your contractor what your budget is, especially if you have a specific area of the home you want the majority of your building budget to go to — such as the kitchen or bathroom. If you don't let your contractor know what your budget is in advance, your contractor will choose the materials for your home that they prefer or that have worked well for other homeowners, whether you have the budget for the materials or you would rather invest more money in the project.
Your budget is important; be honest about what you have to spend on your custom home build so your contractor knows how much wiggle room they have.
Your top desires
Unless you have unlimited square footage and a budget that is pretty open, you are going to have to limit your custom home desires to your top choices. While your contractor will have suggestions for your custom home, what you'd like to do with this space is your choice, in the end. Let your contractor know what you'd like to do with your home so they can help you pick the top custom designs or help you tweak your custom wishes to best suit the flow of your new property.
Building a custom home is a great way to appreciate your property even more. When you have your new custom home designed, let your contractor know in advance both your budget and your top options so they can work with you most efficiently.
