When starting the process of building your custom home, it is exciting, stressful, and fun, all at the same time. You may ask yourself where do I start?

Here are some helpful tips to get you started with your custom home building ideas. One tip is to talk to friends, relatives, or people in your community who have experience working with a custom home builder. Ask them questions to get some advice on building a custom home. They might have ideas to help you get started on the process. Another helpful tip would be try to picture what features you want inside your home. That way you can have a general idea, and then you can start adding in the details.

When you have chosen your custom home builder and it comes time to meet with them, it may be helpful to bring pictures, samples of materials, or sketches of what you want your custom home to look like, from the inside out. Another thing to discuss with your custom home builder is changes. Changes when designing your custom home is nothing out of the norm. You may want a fiberglass shower in your master bathroom, then later you might decide you want a custom tile shower instead. Find out their process of changes and make note of it.
