Building a new home is really exciting and you have the opportunity to design a space that you can live in for years to come. It’s a huge project however that needs to be carefully managed at every stage. Read on and find out the steps that will help you successfully build a new home.
- Set your new build budget
This is a natural place to start, as there’s no point in planning your dream home if you can’t afford it. Talk to your bank about what options are available to you and find out if there are any special options for new builds.
- Look for land that you love
Choosing the land you’d like for your new build is a really exciting step. Consider the community, proximity to your workplace and schools, and what is in the area. The land can have a significant impact on costs, so it’s a really good idea to consult an expert to look at the site and identify any potential hidden costs or problems from the get-go.
- Design your dream home
Many people dream of this moment and this is when you get to bring your vision to life. Find a draughtsperson or architect who can capture your vision on paper. Give a very clear brief and budget and work with them to design the home of your dreams.
