Constructing a Home

Posted on 10. Feb, 2014 by in Tips

If you are anything like me, you can’t wait to live in a home. My husband and I have been married two years, and our goal is to be able to purchase something in another year, so after three years of marriage. If you are anything like me, you have imagined your whole life growing up what your dream house will some day be. I know that I have sat down dozens of times and drawn out floor plans, thought about decorations, and dreamed about what I’d love my house to look like when I get older.

A great option to get everything you want in a home is to build. That being said, it is important to find and contract a builder who understands your vision. Furthermore, you want someone who is very good at their job and knows what they are doing. Someone you can share your ideas with and know the job will get done right the first time. Someone who values time and makes sure to stay on schedule in as much as they are physically able to. You have your dream home in your mind or perhaps on paper and you need something to physically bring it to life.

Some tips to keep in mind when looking for a contractor include asking friends, neighbors and trusted associated for referrals. You can also check out the BBB so you get some good feedback on different companies. It is important to check out the companies standing with local banks and suppliers and make sure that they have a valid license. You can always ask companies for names of people they have worked for in the past. You can then contact these individuals and get some honest feedback on wether or not they would work with the company again in the future. If the company is currently working on a project, ask if you can go see it for yourself. That way you can critique their work firsthand for yourself. Although we all like to save money when we can, be weary of unusually low bids. Keep in mind that you typically get what you pay for and when it comes to building a house, you don’t want anything less than great quality. Although it can take more time to build than to purchase a home that is already for sale, you can get exactly what you want this way. No house is ever perfect, so building is the best way to ensure you get almost everything you want. Building is a great way to go in making your dreams a reality.
