30 Apr 20 Steps to Build Your Custom Home | Steps 1-5
You’ve searched high and low for your perfect dream home. You know what you want but can’t seem to find it. Does it even exist? You keep coming up short. So now what?
Then… the thought strikes you: “If we can’t find our dream house, why don’t we custom build it?”
Doubt chimes in: “Building is too difficult… Too time consuming… Too expensive…” Right?
Many don’t think building the custom home of their dreams is an option for them. But more often than not, it’s more affordable – and more of a reality – than they realize.
Choose yourself a reputable builder with integrity, skill, and an acumen for the details (like Citadel Signature Homes😉) and you’ve got yourself a match made in heaven to build a home so heavenly, it could make angels sing!
What are the steps to building your custom dream home? Find the first 5 steps below…
No. 1: LOT SELECTION
Do you want to live on an acreage? Is city living the life for you? How about a gorgeous lake home right on the water? No matter your fancy, Citadel Signature Homes has access to lots in many lucrative neighborhoods. If you don’t find one you like, where there’s a will, there’s a way, and we’re not afraid to think outside the box.
Once you’ve narrowed your choice of lots down, we encourage clients to drive the neighborhood. Or try driving to work from the location you might build. For other tips and tricks on picking the perfect lot for you, check out the article HERE.
No. 2: DESIGNING YOUR CUSTOM HOME
Your lot is picked out and it’s finally time to DREAM! Bring all your ideas and let’s get to work. Whether we use an existing plan or create a custom one just for you, we work with you to plan a home that will best utilize your chosen lot and incorporate the best options for your budget and desires.
No. 3: FINANCING
While we are planning the custom homes of your dreams, you’re working on securing your financing. Don’t know who to work with? No worries. We have trustworthy, reputable connections for that.
No. 4: ALLOWANCES
Citadel Signature Homes is unique. We are intentional and put a lot of thought and planning into each home build we take on – and we do it BEFORE the building process ever actually begins. As well, we value honesty. So before we break ground, we thoroughly bid out every item for your custom home out to minimize surprises as much as possible.
No. 5: THE PRE-SELECTION PROCESS
Once foundational items for your custom home are bid out, it’s time to PLAY.
Whether you have an eye for design or need a little help from one of our expert interior designers, together we pre-select finishes, tiles, paint colors, you name it.
To best serve and protect our clients, we complete this step earlier than many other builders normally do to prevent budget overages or surprise costs. Once everything is planned, picked out, and agreed upon, it’s time to BREAK GROUND!
Luxury. Quality. The Details. Citadel Signature Homes.
