You have to choose the house plan, the contractor and then all the fun begins!
You don't realize how many decisions will have to be made in the process until you start going over all the details.
That's why it is so important to find the right contractor who can walk you through all these choices and help you make informed decisions.
For example, light switch placement. When you walk into a room, have you ever thought that the light switch was in an odd or inconvenient spot? That could be due to poor planning in the wiring stage. You have to plan where to place the switches before the house is even framed so that the electricians don't have any obstacles preventing them from placing switch boxes where they need to go.
That is just one small detail amidst hundreds that you would need to consider as you build , so that in the end you have the dream home you always wanted.
