Are you in the grueling process of planning and designing your dream home?
Here are 7 important things to remember when building a house.
If you are planning to build your dream home you will need a good design. Design is very personal and the taste of your neighbor may not be the same as yours. Listen to your gut and find a designer or plan that feels like a fit.
Whether your site is the middle of an urban neighborhood or in a rural area, make sure the location is right for you. This might seem obvious, but sometimes our heart decides before our head.
Landscaping is one of the items that tends to be the least priority because it can always be done later. But home cannot be home without a good outdoor view. Getting plants in the ground, with irrigation if you need it, is the finishing touch to a project.
4. THE TEAM
A good team is probably the most important thing for a successful project. A good team will certainly include your contractor, architects, it can also include designers and engineers.
Building a home is a very long process. It may easily take a few years from the sparkle in your eye to turning the key in the door.
6. LONG TERM SCENE
We imagine living in our own homes and never having to move to a place that offers assistance. A home that is built for aging in place is easy to navigate and is in a location that makes the daily experience of living easy, or a least doable.
Building a house is expensive. If you want a well built house, WHICH YOU SHOULD, be prepared to spend some bucks.
