3 Tips For Builder Custom-Designed Homes

If you’ve decided to go ahead with a custom-designed home, you’re in for an exciting journey. From the layout of the floor plan to the orientation right down to the colour of the faucets and LED lighting, the choices are yours. You’re spoiled for choice with an abundance of suppliers on the market. Things can get a little overwhelming with so many decisions to make in builder custom-designed homes. That’s why we’ve put together three tips for your builder custom-designed home.


1. Make selections early


Choosing your design selections early on during the architectural phase will make for a more seamless and stress-free custom-building journey. This gives you time to evaluate your options, consult with your family and feel confident in your decisions. With everyone on the same page, this will minimise the chances of costly mistakes and allow your builder to give you a more comprehensive and accurate quote providing you with peace of mind.


2. Make sure your builder uses high-quality tradespeople


Using experienced tradespeople who understand how to mould quality materials and have experience with your specific type of project will make all the difference in your custom-build. You’ll want a builder with proven abilities. Inexperienced tradespeople can result in delays and costly mistakes that need to be redone or lead to warranty issues further down the track. To avoid this, determine if your builder has an in-house team of contractors; if not, ask them what their hiring process is.


3. Expect the unexpected


As with most projects and journeys we may experience, there’ll always be hiccups along the way. Some of which are unavoidable. Recent flooding in southeast Queensland and northern New South Wales has brought this issue to light. Mentally prepare yourself for delays, whether it be weather-related, delivery of incorrect materials or inspection delays. Things don’t always go to plan, but the right builder will always try to get everything back on track.
