If you’ve decided that you’re going to work with a team of home builders and have a brand new home built for you and your family, you should know there is a lot of work ahead. Congrats on making this major decision!

The home building process can take quite a long time in certain instances but can be much shorter in others. Make sure you are fully prepared for both and consider every factor of your new property. It’s important that you remember all these aspects of the home building process.

General layout

Luckily, because you’re working with plan specific home builders, you’ll have excellent layout options available for you to choose from. There are a few home designs that you should browse through before you make your final decision, but at least going over the layouts that are offered is a great first step. Once the design layout has been selected, it’s time to start focusing on some other aspects of your new property.

Outdoor features

You should decide fairly early on whether or not you want certain outdoor features like a lanai or patio set. Though you can always add on to your home down the road, you should make these decisions prior to the actual construction of your home. Of the 648,000 single-family homes completed two years ago, 183,000 had a patio and a porch, and 14,000 had a patio and a lanai on their property. If you can swing it, these outdoor features can be great for your property.

Furniture, appliances, and decorations

Though you shouldn’t focus too much on these decisions during the actual building process — because there are more productive ways to spend your time — you still should give some thought to how you’re going to set up your home once it’s built. Start looking at furniture options and the types of appliances you want.

As you and your team of builders begin the home building process, make sure you know what to focus on. Decide on the perfect design, think about your outdoor landscape, and plan for the future. Enjoy your new home and contact Inland Homes if you want to learn more.
