How to Choose the Best Team to Build Your Dream Home

Building a home isn’t all about paint, windows and doors, it is about creating a space you and your loved ones can enjoy, safely and comfortably. When it comes to bringing that home you’ve been dreaming of to reality, it is extremely important that you carefully choose the best design team for the job. As you can probably imagine, there are a lot of things to consider when choosing your building team, so, we’ve outlined some ways you can make sure you hire the best team for you!

Hit the Ground Running

Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither is a dream home, so it’s a good idea to get started early. It’s okay to start small, simply looking through websites and galleries of a variety of custom home designs. Then, well, start reaching out and having conversations! You are looking for someone to trust to create your home, meaning you don’t want to leave with any confusion as to who all you could be working with.

Tip: Because building a home is partially dependent on the current weather conditions in the area, some specialties may be booking up, so it’s good to make quick, but informed decisions.

What to Ask and What to Answer

From the first conversation you have with a contractor, you want to be as transparent as possible about what you are looking for, so they can build their design process from there. By providing your chosen team with the full details of your project scope (timeline, budget, potential conflicts, etc.) you are equipping them to lay the right foundation for your custom home design. That being said, you need to trust this professional with a very large part of your life, so asking them questions will not only lay out the limitations/possibilities before you, but will also begin the process of building trust between you and your design team. From every professional you consult, you should ask for their licensing, experience, and rates, and if they’re properly prepared, they should have this information readily available, no negotiation needed.
