A new home build is one of the most exciting projects home owners can undertake. The possibilities are virtually endless and the opportunities for uniqueness are compelling. So where do I sign?
When it comes to a new home build there are many advantages to this possibility.
The most obvious bonus here is that you can get exactly what you want by designing your own home rather than perhaps settling for less than your true dream place to live.
You can also keep the cost under control because when you’re working with a building company, you will be able to choose exactly how much money you want to put into your new home.
However, if you are going to build your own home from scratch, you do have an important decision to make. You need to decide what type or style of home you want to build and there are various options here.
New Home Build: Standard Construction
If you work with a typical designer, they can offer you a standard construction on your home. Usually, a house like this will consist of brick and mortar, three or four bedrooms, a couple bathrooms, a living room and a kitchen.
You might also have a garage either separate or attached and that describes your basic home. The benefit of building a home like this is that while you’re under control of the design, you also keep the cost under control too.
Arguably, this is the cheapest option when building your own dream home. The only problem is that it might not turn out to be the dream come true you hope for. So, let’s look at other possibilities.
New Home Build: Ultra Modern
You can think about designing an ultra modern home, similar to the one in the photograph below.
As you can see it’s beautiful, rather stunning and it would certainly stand out from the rest of the street. Or rather it wouldn’t because if you build a house like this, it will need to be in a secluded area or nearby similar designed properties.
The benefit of a home like this is that while it is most likely going to be quite expensive, it is the definition of style. If you want your friends and family to go green with envy when they see your home, this is the one you need.
The interior will also often have all the awesome modern tech features that you desire from a smart home control to energy saving equipment.
New Home Build: Rustic And Rural
Of course, if you are building a home in the country you might want to ensure that it fits in with the surrounding aesthetic. If that’s the case, you should consider building a log home.
You need to know exactly what you’re doing but there are guides online from sources such as Build Log Homes to help here, and you could theoretically do all the work yourself. You do however need to be prepared for the extra level of maintenance
A log cabin home is just an example of an alternate construction, where the house is built out of materials other than the typical brick and mortar.
Similar, you can build the home with a steel frame to make it cheaper. It is worth examining this possibility if you’re on a tight budget.
Hopefully, with this advice, you will be able to choose the right new home build for your property.
