Once you decide on custom building your new home, you need to come up with a plan. At Parker Built Homes, we will work closely with you to build you the home of your dreams. With careful planning, you will soon find yourself living in one of the many custom homes for you and your family to enjoy.
The First Step is to Find Land
As you consider what land to purchase, make sure that the land can be zoned for the type of building you want. You should also think about what it is going to cost you to get utilities to your home. If the property is extremely rural, it may be cost prohibitive to purchase the land to build on. Research the community where the property is to make sure you want to live in the area.
Meet with a Home Builder
When you meet with a home builder, check to see if they are licensed, insured and have a good reputation within the community. Experience building in the area you want to live is essential, and your future builder should be familiar with the area.
Choose a Home Design
Whether you are choosing from pre-existing plans, or you want a completely customized home, choosing an initial design needs to be completed after meeting with a home builder. You can customize this plan by meeting with your home builder, and asking about any changes you want to make to the plan.
Ask for a Contract with a Fixed Price
With a fixed-price contract in place, you won’t have to worry about paying extra if building costs get out of control because the builder miscalculated time or costs.
As the Home Gets Built
The home builder will keep you informed every step of the way as your home is built. Steps include laying the foundation, framing, roofing, plumbing, electrical work and interior work.
