Don’t Make These Mistakes When Designing Your Custom Home

Designing and building your perfect custom home in the Hill Country is exciting. It’s easy to focus on the “fun” things like colors and furniture, but without a bigger-picture plan you may end up with a custom home that’s beautiful, but not really right for you.

Here are three mistakes to avoid when building your dream home.

Building only for now

Most of our clients come to us with a list of what things they need in their home right now — enough bedrooms for their children, a craft room, a two-story home, etc.

It’s important that your home be comfortable and useful when it’s first built, but we believe it’s also important to think about how you will use your home five, 10, or even 20 years from now.

I’ve got some tips on ways to design a home that will be comfortable for years to come.

Not planning for what you really need

Sometimes we get caught up in thinking about things we want and forget about what we need.

It’s fun to add in those unique “extras” that make your custom home your own, but it’s just as important that your home be functional and comfortable.

Here’s a quick guide to making sure your custom home fits your family’s needs.

Ignoring what goes behind the walls

The visible parts of your custom home should be beautiful and high-quality, but what about the parts you can’t see?

Using energy-efficient construction materials can help keep your home comfortable, lower heating and cooling costs, and possibly even lower your mortgage risk.

As a green certified builder we use “green” construction materials and building practices to make your custom home as energy-efficient as it is beautiful.
