Tips for New Home Construction
From selecting a home site to choosing hardware for the kitchen cabinets, each custom home project involves hundreds of decisions. These simple tips can help ensure that your custom home meets your expectations in terms of both enjoyment and return on investment:
- Always choose quality–in your home site, exterior materials and interior elements. Choose quality materials throughout and quality construction.
- For your home site, be sure you know and love the neighborhood. Find a site that is large enough to hold both the house and yard you desire and close to the amenities you use.
- Work with a designer who is focused on maintaining the integrity of your home’s design throughout the interior and exterior of the house.
- Work with a designer/builder who can help you understand the technologies available in lighting, audio and video systems, kitchen appliances and Internet connectivity.
