Building a custom home should be a time of great excitement and joy, not frustration and anxiety. Below are three tips on things you can do to ensure the process moves along as smoothly as possible:
Plan Everything Down to the Last Detail
You have the land and the financing, so now it's time to further develop your ideas into a viable home building plan.
This step will require working with an experienced building contractor who can help you to make your dreams a reality. It may seem premature to make all decisions now, but it prevents stalls along the building process due to indecision or material unavailability. Your builder can help you to design the perfect home for you that will also work with the land and budget that you have.
Avoid Making Too Many Changes to the Original Plan
The more changes you make to the original plan, the longer (and more expensive) the building project will be.
The decision process mentioned above should be done as thoroughly as possible so as to avoid making too many changes during the actual building phase. While it's unrealistic to assume that there won't be any changes to the plan at all, there are ways you can cut down on them.
If you have any doubts about a particular decision, talk with your contractor beforehand about how changing that decision later could affect the building process. Your contractor is there to give you honest feedback on your plans, so take what they say into serious consideration.
Don't Sweat the Small Stuff
When you're building your ideal home, it can be hard to let even the smallest of details go. You have these ideas in your mind of how everything will look, and it can be hard to let go of them.
It's important to remind yourself that certain decisions and issues aren't worth stressing over. Many things can be changed down the road if after living with the decision you really don't like it, but many things you're stressing about now won't even register on your radar once you're living there. The building process is stressful enough without stressing over the smallest of details, so pick your battles and let the rest go.
An experienced building contractor can help you with the above three things to make sure the building process moves along as it should. It's important that you sit down with your builder to go over every detail of your plans, as well as understand what changes may be likely to occur during the building process.
