After buying land, building a house is always a big project for a household. We invest time and a considerable budget in order to give birth to a property that resembles us. In addition to building the walls, a house in its image is necessarily a personalized house. Because who would want to buy the exact same house as their neighbor across the street? Not many people.

If the decoration of an interior house allows precisely this customizable aspect, it is important to anticipate it from the construction work on its land. Surface area, lifestyle, facade or even interior space layout, bedroom or kitchen measurement, several parameters must be studied upstream. Let’s see together how to make the right choices in terms of personalization, in order to plan your construction project more serenely.

Choose the type of new house before construction

Getting started on the construction of a new house is a project stretching over several months. However, it is at the beginnings of the realization of the plans, after having acquired the land that you must decide which road to take, especially in terms of style. And who says new house, does not necessarily say a sanitized and soulless house. Because precisely the soul, it is you who breathe it. You have to think carefully about the style you want to offer your new home.

Custom home builder is above all choosing a model that you like. It is up to your builder to show you the possible types of houses according to the price you are willing to put. Contemporary, classic, rustic style, you have free rein. However, think about the possible resale, it would be a shame if your creative choices block your future buyers. It is not uncommon for first-time buyers to fear overly original houses, and little dare to realize their ideas. Do not forget that you are creating your nest for the next few years, and that the advantage of buying also comes through this creative freedom. Provided you can afford it, of course.

It makes sense to strike the right balance between current trends, the regulatory constraints inherent in construction and your personal taste. Once you get your finger on the pulse of what you aspire to, building your new home will take shape in your imagination.

Take care of the exterior surface of your new home according to your budget

At a glance, it is possible to judge the aesthetics of a house. Yep, its exterior is logically the first thing you and your audience will see. This is why it is essential not to neglect it . First and foremost, it is the facade of your future new home that must be studied. Your builder is supposed to suggest several material options: plaster, wood, concrete, etc.

In addition to the material of the facade, you will have to choose the color of the coating of your choice. If the less daring are moving towards traditional white, gray, black, the more daring opt for brighter colors to give a  real character  to a new house. The roof is just as important: tiles or slates, this choice are not always a matter of personal taste. Most cities force the choice of one or the other in order to preserve a certain harmony in the municipality.

On the outside, you will also have to select the model of your door and your windows to sublimate the whole construction. This choice should not be taken lightly as it provides a strong guarantee for the visual identity of your new home. Here too, the builder can guide you towards the preferred model, depending on the type of house desired. Classic two-leaf door, in wood or metal, bay windows or Italian-style window, in short, several solutions are possible.
