Building your dream home is an exciting time. However, the custom home building process can feel overwhelming when considering the enormity of the project. A great way to stay organized is to take note of key things to remember as you put together your plan in motion. Here is a breakdown of some major steps in homebuilding.
Major Steps in Home Building
6. Purchase Insurance
Should anything go wrong when building a custom home, you want to know that you are covered. Purchasing insurance should be something you do prior to any construction work beginning. Make sure that all of your contractors are insured.
7. Begin Construction
Once all the plans have been finalized and the approvals have been obtained, you can begin construction on your custom home! Be sure to participate in the process and ask for clarification when necessary. Check on the progress regularly and be as involved as possible during the process.
8. Follow up With Inspections
At various stages of the project, the construction will need to be inspected by your municipality. Make sure that this is being done. Ask your contractor to provide the dates of the inspections and follow up to find out the outcome of each one.
9. Finalize Landscaping
Once your home is built, you can begin to pay attention to the exterior of your home and find ways to make it as appealing as possible. You want your home to offer curb appeal so get creative with some awesome landscaping!
10. Obtain Occupancy Permit and Close Building Permits
Before you can occupy your new home, you will need to make sure that you obtain an occupancy permit and a close building permit.
