Here are some questions you need to ask yourself, you have designed the house, it looks good, makes sense and now you are ready to build. Have you really finished? Is everything really as you want it? Can you clearly see how the house will work? And last but not least, have you allowed money in your budget for changes.
The elevations usually give you an idea of what the outside of the house will look like most homeowners can get a pretty good idea on the outside and even some of the interior sections of the house.
You have probably spent enough time working with the architect and you may be the contractor and you might even have finished with this part of the planning. Let's just start building the house, between the architect, the engineer and your local building department, you've had it and would like to start the project.
I know what you think, I know where you were, now I want you to focus on my original question. Can you clearly see how the house will look like?
Make sure, and I mean, make sure you have a good idea of what your house will look like. After the planner, the architect and the house designer have given you your plans and they are now complete, spend at least an hour each night, review the plans and make sure you are comfortable with layout, interior and exterior decoration.
Any changes you need to make now will save you a lot of money in the future, even if it could delay the work of a few more months. It's very important and you really need to consider the plans, completely.
Happy building and I hope this will help, because I've saved thousands of dollars to homeowners, just by asking the question, are you really sure that's what you want.
