The Process


If you determine that custom home building is the right option for you then you need to consider what the process is.  The first step in this process is to find out if you are allowed to build a custom home.  There are certain areas where people are not able to build custom homes.  These areas are generally housing estates where the developer wants all of the homes to have a similar look or to be completely identical.  If you are not in one of these areas then you should not have a problem with building a custom home.


The next step in custom home building is to get the design of your home.  There are three ways that people commonly do this.  The first way is to hire an architect to design the house according to the specifications that the people have.  The second method is to look for designs that have already been done which are close to what you want.  The last option is to design the house yourself, but this is generally not something most people will attempt
