The first step in designing a custom home is you. Your creative ideas and home inspirations will be where the designers start. Even if you only have a loose idea of the type of home you are looking for, your architects will have a better idea of where to start. If you can, create a must-have’s list of things that you admire in other homes. This may include simple structural features such as number of rooms/bathrooms, or it may include major design aesthetics such as traditional, modern, western, etc. You may also want to include a list of things that do not interest you.
The next step is to either find a custom home contractor or reach out to a residential architect. Very few homes are designed by architects, who often specialize in larger construction projects. However, if you want something that is truly unique and you want someone who can devote all their time to your project, they specialize in schematic design and design development to ensure you have every detail you are hoping for.
For most custom home projects, you will likely use the services of a home construction contractor. This will allow you to work with one person or company from start to finish. A contractor will also have many partners, giving you access to a large variety of products and options. Custom home contractors generally have many years of experience, and they will help you form your ideas into a beautiful custom home.
