Naturally, with a new home project on the horizon, it’s hard to resist the temptation to dive in and start knocking down walls on your own. You can’t wait to get it done and see the final product. Of course, implementing a successful home renovation project requires a lot of work and careful planning. We’ve guided many successful home renovation and custom home projects to completion, so we know what it takes. Here are four important steps needed to plan a successful custom home project:
Choose a Designer
In order to create a detailed plan for your project, you should hire an interior designer. They will help you create a detailed scope of work and offer decorating and material suggestions. The process of finding a design professional can be difficult. Luckily, the Tri-Link team includes an in-house Interior Designer and Architect. All their Clients are very pleased with her professionalism, she is very personable and she truly listens to each Client’s wants and needs. She is perfect for your project and works seamlessly with the rest of the Tri-Link Builder team to ensure your custom home vision is brought to life.
Make a Plan
Now that you have an interior designer, it is time to start planning! Having a wishlist is the ideal start so you can capture all the key components that are important to you in your new home. Once you have your wishlist (this will take some time and thought), it is time to sit down with our in-house designer/architect so she can understand your needs and start envisioning your home with you. In a nutshell, she will transform your vision on to paper (drawings).
Pick a Contractor/Builder
the detailed design drawings for pricing have been created and approved by the Client, it is time to bring in the Builder. The Contractor will then send out the drawings to their Trade Partners for pricing so they can provide you with a preliminary estimate of costs. Interviewing and finding the right contractor can take a while, as this is not something that should be rushed. Especially if you’re planning an intense project like a custom home, you want to do it right. Ask around – when you consider quality, price, experience, qualifications, craftsmanship, and customer service, and you’ll see why Tri-Link Builders is the right choice for you.
Get Your Permit
The time and cost of getting a permit depends on the scope of work to be done – ie. new custom home, or is it a new addition? It could take 6-8 weeks for the development permit so preparation is everything. Tri-Link will handle the permit process for you so you don’t have to deal with the hassle.
The length of time between deciding to start a custom home project and completing the project can be long, but each step is crucial to the successful completion of your new home or addition.
