The custom homebuilding process is one filled with planning, especially when it comes to placing your home correctly on your lot or land. Obviously, if you’re in a subdivision on a flat lot smaller than ½ an acre, positioning your home is going to be relatively straight-forward. But perhaps you’ve done your research and found a piece of land in close proximity to your favored activities, perhaps within a school district you want. The perfect spot. You know it will suit you best and you’ve made the purchase, or are about to. Now what? Where to put your home on the land?
We have several clients in the process of this very decision. If you’re using an architect, it’s good to get him or her on board at this point. At the very least, include your contractor so he can help assess your land from the perspective of constructing the home. He can offer insight as to what will be possible, what will cost the most, the least, where the home would be most efficiently placed, etc.
