Are you pursuing a custom home construction here in Flagler County? In anticipation of this exciting event, we’re sharing five key factors to consider along the way.
If you’re considering a custom construction, one of the biggest initial factors to consider is, of course, the size you want. While you may not need to have an exact square footage in mind, knowing about how many bedrooms and bathrooms you’d like is a great place to start. Are you expanding your family, or are looking to downsize? Do you want an open space with two stories, or a smaller abode that’s cozy and easy to manage? Answer these questions to get started.
When pursuing a custom build, you have the unique ability to choose exactly where you want to live. Think about features you love (such as trees or a body of water) and those you could live without. This is the time to be picky and choose what you really want, so don’t be afraid to take some time and really get to know potential locations.
Use of the space
Your use of a space will play a big part in determining the style and shape of your home. Do you love entertaining and a wide open floor plan, or are you more interested in the personal nature of a cozier space? When building a custom home, you have a say in how things are laid out—so think seriously about the home you want to live in!
During a home build, many soon-to-be-homeowners get so worked up in the interior details of their new space that they almost forget to consider the outdoors as well. Don’t forget to consider the kind of outdoor space you want—whether you want room for a pool or prefer a grassy getaway for the kids, have plans in mind so that we can help you realize them.
Cost and budget
Finally, cost and budget are major considerations—but don’t look at them as limiting factors. Having a thorough knowledge of your finances will allow you to prioritize what you want and focus on achieving those “dream” features, so that you can get the home you truly want.
We hope that today’s blog helps you sort out the construction process in a clear, effective way. By considering these factors and a few more, you can go through the construction process with ease and peace of mind.
