To date on our quest for a spectacular new custom home in Andersonville: we have ripped everything out, added new walls and sub-floors, installed all new mechanicals in the walls, and sprayed in insulation. Along with about 100 other little projects along the way…and now we have…DRYWALL!
Now those of you with no vision, you know who you are, can see where all these new rooms are going to be. Start imagining all your interior designs, you need kitchen designs and bathroom designs and overall home designs. So now there are walls, all the designs should be well under way. At this pint our homeowners have picked out every piece of tile, all the appliances, every plumbing fixture and piece of trim.
When building (or remodeling) a custom home, there are about 10,000 decisions that need to be made, fairly quickly. Before you start, have a good idea of what you like (or what you hate). I have found a list of “must haves” and a list of “it would be nice to haves” helps when making decisions. Know the items you are willing to go over budget on and those that are just not that big a deal to you. When you prioritize you make decisions a little easier – and there are lots of decisions in building a new custom home!
If you are not doing a complete gut re-hab to create your new dream custom home – what is the one area of your house you would re-do to get closer to your custom dream home? Most would say a kitchen remodel. Or maybe remodeling the master bath. For lots of folks with kids, a basement remodel tops the list. What’s on your dream home list?
