Building a custom Victoria BC home can be an exciting time, especially when you have the perfect lot, the right builder, and cooperative weather! But there are also times when the home building process can be overwhelming or stressful. When this happens, there are plenty of people to help you out, including your custom home builder. Below are some tips from our builders on how to have the best possible home building experience that you can:
- Set Goals
Be sure to establish project goals and prioritize them in order of importance to you. Setting your priorities (budget, finishes, space, etc.) helps your team manage the project with those priorities in mind.
- Organize Your Ideas
Got ideas and inspiration for your home? Great! Collect all of your photos, sketches, and ideas, organize them, and share them with your team before the design stage begins.
- Be Decisive
Trust your team during the building process, but also trust yourself! Once you have made a decision, stick with it and be confident that you have made the right choice.
- Hire Experts
If you want your custom home to be spectacular, you should only trust the experts to design and build it. These people should have proven experience which will allow them to give trusted advice and guidance during the building process.
When your entire team is communicating during the building process, it helps to minimize stress, confusion, and mistakes! Be sure to check in with your designer, builder, architect, and anyone else on your team regularly.
- Be Flexible
In any building project, delays or mistakes can happen. Be sure to know this ahead of time and be flexible when things that are out of your control arise.
- Set a Schedule
Ask for a detailed schedule of the process at the beginning of the project. This will help you keep track of what is going on and what the timelines are to reduce stress or uncertainty!
- Have Fun!
This might be one of the most important tips! The custom home building process can be a fun and creative experience, so enjoy designing and building your dream home!
