Build Your Dream House
Whether you’ve been planning on building your dream house for many years, or have recently decided that creating your own house design is the only way to get the house of your dreams, you have the power to make that dream come to life. When you make the choice to build your house, you get to make all of the decisions that make your home truly yours.
In order to make your dream house turn into a reality, you’ll need to make a list of everything that you’ll want included in it.
Dream House Design Research
It’s always a good idea to do some research when taking on such a large project. This way you’ll know what to expect so there won’t be any surprises.
- Choosing your lot is important – will it fully accommodate your dream house? Is it within a good school district for your kids? Do you want to be in a growing, professional neighborhood?
- Energy Efficiency – are you planning a green building? Makes sense! You even get tax credit for energy saving things like energy efficient windows and solar energy systems. Make sure your design is able to include these features you want in your new home!
Design Portfolio Design Portfolio
Finding a professional interior design firm to help you design the space in your new dream house is highly recommended. Ask them to show you a portfolio of their work. Make sure they include kitchens and bathrooms, which will help you decide if you’re going to use their services or not. An expert in interior house designs can easily help you design your new space. They also offer the following additional services – assistance choosing the right furnishings, floor planning, space planning, color selection, painting, staining, and more.
Because changing your mind can be costly, be sure that you have no doubts when it comes to your overall house design.
Building Contractor Tips
It’s essential for you to work closely with the building contractors who are creating your new dream house. This is the best way for you to ensure that the process goes as smoothly as possible.
- First and foremost, make sure you’re working with an experienced licensed general contractor.
- Put everything in writing especially things that are important for you to have – e.g. energy efficiency.
- Make as many decisions as possible before the work begins.
- Be flexible, honest, and available.
- You should also make sure you discuss your planned budget with your contractor, as you don’t want to go over budget if possible.
- Be sure to have your contractor create a schedule for when your house will be completed. You want to be sure you don’t end up having to pay two mortgages.
- Discuss the best ways to communicate with each other.
