The stark reality of custom home construction is that it would consume a lot of your money and time. If you are not ready to invest time and money, then you should not get into such a project. Once the budget is finalized, you need to have a look at designs, floor plans and blueprints to begin the project. A good custom home building firm with an experienced team would help you through the whole process.
You need to ask the builder to give you the complete timeline of the construction. Without the timeline, you wouldn’t know when the construction would start and when it would complete. Any changes to the timeline should be properly communicated to you by the builder. If there are going to be any delays to the project, the builder should provide proper justification for the delays and provide you with modified timelines.
Custom home construction is a complete team job which includes the client too. You need to visit the construction site as often as possible and discuss with the team working on the site and get to know the current status of the project.
