There's nothing more exciting than building your dream home. Take a look at
your living area now. What would you change? The floor plan for more open
space, the flooring or maybe add more windows.

How about a big kitchen with a bar or a spacious family room. An office or
study is a great retreat for family members. Get your family together and
sketch out your ideas. Make your dream come true.

Planning is crucial, therefore have a well developed plan and put it in
action. Knowing what features you need will simplify the process. Consider
everyone's needs when deciding on a home plan.

Carefully research home design plans and make scetches of your own for
comparison. Often planners will customize pre-designed plans that will
functionally meet your needs. Deciding on a home plan should be fairly easy,
it's the choice of materials that can send you reeling.

Most importantly, if you hire someone to contract the building of your home,
take an active role, compare material cost, foundation, framing, electrical,
plumming etc. You'll be surprised at the savings. Also, consider whether
your willing to do any of the work yourself. Something as simple as doing
your own painting could save you enough to have that pool, you may not have

Talk to everyone you know that has built a home. Most will tell you, if they
had it to do over, they would have done things differently. There's no need
to hurry, a well though out plan is crutial. After all, you're building your
dream home.
