A custom home isn’t something you’re going to build every year, so you need to set your priorities and decide what you want in your house. You want to get the essentials right the first time.
Making a want, need and must have list for your new custom home is necessary even before the construction process begins. Why? It allows you to make a list of the things that are wants and must have’s.
Turning your house into a home is a huge undertaking, and the best way to get what you want is to really think through what matters. It should be a team effort so that it reflects everyone’s personal priorities and not just your own to make the house a comfortable place to live for everyone. Include basic room size if you can and think about storage (linear feet of closet, kitchen storage…). Study your existing home – what works and what doesn’t.
