Building a home instead of buying it comes with many options. Design choices such as building materials and room size are only a few of the choices a home builder will have to make. Each part of the project should contribute to the overall look of the new home. Using stone, wood or concrete are all exterior design choices. Deciding how much light will come into the home is a very important design choice. It determines the number and size of windows needed.
The beauty of having design choices is making sure the home works well for the self-builder. It is important to consider all the design choices before construction begins. It may seem there are too many details to contemplate, but this is part of customizing a home. Each design choice leads to the home being comfortable for those that will live in it. Choices such as hardwood flooring or ceramic tiles are important for the person that will walk on them for years to come.
