If someone said to you that you had to eat an entire cow, you’d probably panic at the thought. If they added to that sentence, “in a year” or “in a decade,” you would not feel as stressed. When it comes to new home construction, it can seem just as enormous of an undertaking, but with a few tips and a plan to tackle it “one bite at a time,” you will find the process far less stressful.
The first tip is to look at the big picture first. It is tempting to want to figure out everything at once – colors, lighting, appliances, etc. However, stick with the big decisions. Decide on a location, square footage, the number of bedrooms and bathrooms, if you need a home office, and the type of layout that interests you most. Spend time looking at floor plans only after you have made a list of needs you cannot compromise on. Keep in mind if you cannot locate a floor plan that meets all your criteria that custom new home construction or even semi-custom may be the best option.
The next tip is to work with a new home construction builder that has a building process that is easy to understand and spreads out your inspection and decision processes to make it less stressful. The plan will show you when you need to pick the roof materials, lighting fixtures, cabinetry, interior colors, and other aspects rather than having everything in place at the beginning.
