Starting Your Dream

Having your own land is the first major step when looking to custom building your home. There are a couple more things to start to do. Choosing an architect, floor plans and a builder is part of your first steps.

Land Study

A civil engineer will work with your contractor and architect to make sure that you comply with local regulations where your land is located. They will help to make sure that there are connections to all of the resources that you will be needing. This can include things like water, electricity and other plumbing.

Custom Floor Plans

It is easy to purchase floor plans already laid out. There might be other things that you are looking at for your own personal lifestyle. Do you need an extra bedroom added on the first floor? Do you need certain specifications for your home office or workshop? All of these are best done before construction is started.

Determining Costs

This one is difficult to calculate off the cuff. Once you have the plans and are in good communication with your homebuilder, they will be able to give you a good idea. Remember that the condition of your land and how many changes you are looking for in your floor plans will make the price change.
