Building a home is a big step. It is likely the most expensive purchase you will make, so it’s important to consider all aspects of the process to make sure it fulfills your dreams. Here are some points to remember when planning to build your home.


Perhaps the most important part of your decision is choosing where to build. Location is the one thing about your house that you definitely can’t change, so make sure you pick the right spot.


Avoid the pitfall of purchasing more house than you can afford. Consult a financial professional for advice, and make sure you understand adjustable rates and compounding interest. It’s better to be conservative when choosing your budget.


Consider how many people will live in your house, and whether that number may change. Also keep in mind how often you will entertain and have overnight guests.

Floor plan

Choose a floor plan that you will be happy with and comfortable in for many years. You may want to consider a single story if you expect to live there into your senior years when it may become more difficult to climb stairs.

Room design

Decide what types of specialized rooms that fit your lifestyle. Examples include exercise rooms, home offices, workshops, and craft rooms.



Often the outside of your home is just as important as the inside. Think about what you’ll see out of the windows, as you probably don’t want to look into an alley or your neighbor’s wall. Also remember that vacant spaces may not remain that way, so consider what your future view may be as well.
