Building and designing a house is very exciting but it can be stressful if you enter this process without a detailed plan. From talking to the right professionals to knowing what you want your home to look like, there are so many important aspects involved in the home building process.
Here are some of the main phases of the home building and designing process:
Establishing your budget
The first step in the home building process is setting an accurate and realistic financial budget. Don’t stress out too much when you see the final number, because even though it will be larger than anything you have ever purchased, it will be worth it and manageable if you handle each step carefully.
Meeting with home builders
When you meet with your experienced home builders, you’ll be able to go over all your initial designing and building plans. These professionals can help you come up with a design blueprint for your future home and can discuss everything from kitchen layout to building codes. Make sure you’re discussing hurricane prep during this meeting, as well. Since hurricanes can come with wind speeds of over 160 miles per hour, your home needs to be able to withstand major storms.
Specifics and selections
This step is one of the most exciting parts of the entire process because you actually get to start making decisions that will impact your home’s final look. You can talk about paint, cabinets, antique shelves, countertops, windowsills, kitchen faucets, door handles, and everything in between.
Once you have approved the architectural plans and all the selection, you are then ready to finalize the contract price. The contract will include all the specifications, estimated time it will take to complete the home, and all financial aspects.
Your team of skilled builders will get to work as soon as the contract is signed. After this step has commenced, it’s only a matter of time before you and your family will be able to walk into your newly constructed home. It will be an amazing experience driving by the construction site each day as your home is being built, as well.
After your home has been constructed, simply walk around and inspect every inch of the property and make sure it’s exactly what you want. If you’re happy with how it turned out — great, you can now enjoy your brand-new home!
