2) Step 1: Determine your style
There are a lot of decisions to make when you’re building your own home. One of the first major decisions is about your home’s style and design. The first thing you’ll need to determine is what kind of house you want to build. Do you want a country farmhouse or a modern, sleek glass house? You might also consider if you want your home on one level or more than one level, if it will be big or small, and how many bedrooms and bathrooms it will have.
3) Step 2: Set your budget
Before you can figure out what kind of home you can get for your budget, it’s important to set a budget. Asking yourself these questions will help: do I want to purchase or rent? Do I need a lot of space for a large family? How much time am I willing to spend maintaining the property? What are my goals and plans for the future?
4) Step 3: Start with the basics
It’s never too early to start with the basics and figure out how much you can afford. This is a key step in the process because it will help you determine what size home you can afford. The next step is to calculate your down payment amount. A good rule of thumb is that this should be between 10% and 20% of your total purchase price, so if you’re buying a $200,000 home, it would be $40,000-$80,000 for the down payment.
5) Step 4: Add in the extras
A lot of people underestimate the importance of the extras when building a home. The finishing touches can really make your new home feel like a second home. You don’t have to break the bank on these, though. There are plenty of less expensive items that will add just as much character to your space as more expensive ones. For example, you can use pillows and blankets for accent pieces, or put up wall art and family photos to brighten up the walls in unused spaces.
6) Step 5: Put it all together
Now that you have all the pieces, it’s time to put them together. The first step is to measure the area where you want to install your hardwood flooring. This will give you the accurate measurements for cutting the boards and ensures a tight fit. You can use a measuring tape, or a chalk line on the ground to mark out one foot increments.
7) Step 6: Customize your space
What are some of your favorite things? What’s the color scheme of your room? What about the style of furniture? Do you have any pets? These questions will help us tailor your space to fit your needs. For example, if you have a dog, we can make sure there’s enough room for him or her to run and play. And, if you love to cook, we can install a kitchen with plenty of counter space and beautiful cabinets to store all of your cooking supplies.
