Building a custom home is a commitment, there’s no doubt about that. However, the large majority of people who have gone through this process realize that they wouldn’t of had it any other way. Customizing and building your home is one of the most rewarding things you can do for yourself and your new home will be a testament to your hard work and passion for the rest of your life! Although it’s unlikely you’ll be completely ashamed by your new home, most people do have some regrets. In this blog, we’re going to take a look at 10 things you should consider before designing your home so that you have no regrets once it’s all said and done.
Pick The Right Time
Everyone is at a different point in their lives. Some people are at the point where they’re working long hours trying to save up money, while others may be at a point where they’ve achieved full financial security. With that being said, it’s important that you choose the right time to build your custom home. The most important thing is that you have the free time to commit to working with your custom home builders, ensuring it’s exactly the way you want it. Needless to say, if you’re reaching the peak of your career, it’s probably not the best time to build a custom home.
Work With The Right Company
The second most crucial rule in building a custom home is picking the right company to work with. Once you’ve made your decision, it’s not easy to go back on it, so you’ll want to choose a home builder that you can see yourself working with long term. Remember, this is likely one of the biggest investments you will make, so if your potential home builder isn’t getting back to you quickly with helpful information, you’re probably going to want to take your business elsewhere. Be sure to ask home building companies about any recent clients that you can speak with about their experience.

Think About Furniture Placement Early
What many people find after building their own custom home is that their rooms look a lot different with furniture than without. It’s easy to get carried away with the size or shape of a room without taking into consideration what will actually go into the room. If you don’t take full measurements and understand exactly what you want and where you want it, you may be left with regrets later on.
