The Fine Details: Preparing To Build A Custom Home

Whenever there is a project to be done, it is important to have adequate preparation to help ensure success. Planning for a custom-built home is no exception. You will want to keenly evaluate your options and make the best possible decisions to turn your vision into your dream home.

Three factors that are of paramount importance for building your new home are financial implications, construction time and the nuts and bolts of the building process. This post will explore each of these things in detail so you can have a better understanding of the process that will lead to your new residence.

The following post takes a closer look at what you should expect to be the cost of constructing your custom made home:

What Does It Cost To Build a Custom Home?

The simple answer is that costs vary based on each individual home design. Construction costs for a custom home can range from $150 to over $400 per square foot, but cost per square foot is not the best way to evaluate the price of a custom home. It is best to evaluate the primary cost centers for construction, exterior materials and interior finishes to understand how they impact the design of a home.

On average, building a new home takes about six months. But few homes are average. The length of time it takes to build a home can vary. Modular homes may take just three months. On the other hand, large custom-built homes can take up to 16 months.
