1. DESIGN.

Go through as many building plans as possible keeping in mind the home needs of your family. You may want to allocate more space to the rooms that your family will use most.  Interior design consultations, whether for the basics or full blown plan are important and help you enjoy building your new home.

2. BUILDER.

When choosing a builder carefully consider his building experience and call his customers to get their opinion.  In your agreement with the builder make a complete description of the home. Plans and specifications must be agreed to and signed by all parties. Get a firm price for the home. Do not sign an agreement that leaves out some costs. The price must complete the home at the agreed site.

Conduct a soil test for the building lot to make sure the soils are suitable.  A percolation test may also be necessary if a septic system is needed. Note that correcting soil problems can be expensive. So it’s wise to test the soil before purchasing the building lot.
