Advice for building a custom home

Building a custom home can be a very exciting process. You get to help plan and design your dream home, built specifically to suit your lifestyle and needs. As lovely as that sounds, building a home can feel very overwhelming at times!

Silvercliff Homes in Edmonton are custom home builders. Whether you’re building a starter home or an executive home, they share some helpful advice.

Choose a home builder you can trust.

There are many home builders out there, from small businesses to large-scale developers. Choosing the right home builder for your project is essential to its success.  Silvercliff Homes has extensive experience in design, experienced knowledge of construction, and making smart decisions on the fly. You want a builder that can guide you through the entire process with transparent communication. When choosing a builder, always check for licensing, insurance and ask for references.

Consider how you want your home to function, then worry about design.

How your home is going to function on the day-to-day is important. Surprisingly, many homeowners get overwhelmed by making design and aesthetic decisions without putting enough thought into how everything is going to work. You want good traffic flow, a functional layout, and ample storage. You should also consider things like energy efficiency, home security and home automation.

Build a home you can grow in.

Building a custom home is a major investment. You want to make sure the home you build will grow with your changing needs. If you’re a young family, make sure you have enough rooms in the house for future children. It might also mean putting bedrooms and a bathroom in the basement to give them space in their teenaged years.

If you’re building your retirement home, ask your builder about building to age-in-place. That might mean building a ranch-style bungalow with bedrooms and living areas on one floor. You want to make sure your home continues to fit your needs perfectly, even as they change.
