Frequently Asked Questions
I want to build a new home. What are the next steps?
Before embarking on your next big project, you have a few things to consider:
- Your budget
- Choosing a lot
- Picking a house layout
- Finding a contractor
Once you know your budget and where you want to build, you can work with a professional home builder to hammer out the other details. A home builder can also help you select a lot, design your home, and build out your team if you need architects or excavators. They can also help you obtain building permits and finalize your project plan, so contacting a home builder is a great place to start.
How long does it take to build a new home?
Building a new home can take anywhere from 6 months to 2 years. It varies on the size of the job, who’s involved, and any planning and permit obtainment that needs to get done.
Generally, for a custom home, you should err on the side of caution. Expect it to take two years—one for planning, one for construction—so you don’t rush it.
Should I build a new home or renovate my current home?
That will depend on your needs, wants, and budget. Sometimes, all you need is a remodeled kitchen and a new home addition to make your house feel like a dream home. But other times, you may have loftier aspirations (and a loftier budget) that necessitate a home built from the ground up.
You should consider building a new home after consulting a contractor to see if it’s within your budget. If your current home is old or in ruin, it may not be worth renovating.
Can I visit the construction site during construction?
Yes! Before visiting, please book an appointment so your builder can escort you safely. The construction site is a work zone and can be dangerous, so we strongly advise you to follow the builder’s safety instructions.
Should I buy land before or after I speak with my home builder?
We always recommend buying land after you speak with a home builder to ensure it’s ready for development. But if you’ve already purchased land, don’t worry: a builder can still certainly help you develop it.
