All Too Common and Persistent Myths about Custom Home Building

All Too Common and Persistent Myths about Custom Home Building

Join us now as we debunk some frequently-encountered myths about the home building process.

Myths are a part of just about everything in our daily lives. As is the case in many industries, misconceptions and false assumptions are bound to confuse prospective homeowners. Whether you are building a brand new home on your lot, or you’ve decided to join a burgeoning neighborhood filled with neighbors, the journey doesn’t need to be complicated. Join us now as we debunk some frequently-encountered myths about the home building process.

Future Homeowners Must Understand Design Principles

The design phase of any home building endeavor is usually the most fun part. Even so, inexperienced homeowners are hesitant to proceed because they doubt they can grasp the complicated concepts involved. By working with reputable home building professionals, this process becomes far easier to understand. After all, your home builder partner will handle the hard work and know the ins-and-outs of home construction. Your part will guide the creative vision of what you want to see once the house is built. Design teams and drafting experts will turn that wish list into a reality.

Unexpected Costs are Bound to Pop Up 

Successfully finalizing a reasonable budget needs to happen. Otherwise, delays and overruns caused by insufficient planning can slow down the pace of completion. While it is easy to assume that unexpected costs are the largest obstacle, there are ways to prevent them in the first place.  When setting a budget for the house, always keep 1%-3% in reserve for those items you see once construction begins that you didn’t see when it was lined up on a page.

The Construction Phase Will Take Too Long

Once the preparations are made, foundations can be laid. After that, the construction phase should continue without a hitch. Many homeowners are also scared that the project’s entire timeline will miss deadlines for one reason or another. Foul weather and supply shortages will contribute to unnecessary delays. However, the team here at Accessible Home Builders will strive to avoid any such issues. 

Too Much Complexity Will Derail the Project 

Likewise, another enduring myth about construction has to do with complexity. There are plenty of decisions to make, but our pre-construction process will simplify them for you. Various options are available, and they will make sense for your budget while achieving your aesthetic goals. Becoming overwhelmed is a common pitfall of building your own home. Still, you don’t need to let that negative outcome happen!

Problematic Communication Breakdowns Occur

Communication is essential. After all, you aren’t just building a structure – you are cultivating a relationship as well. The two key building blocks of any relationship are strong trust and constant communication. We will call you every Monday during construction to give you a status update and to keep those communication lines strong. We also appreciate your input and feedback if you change your mind about details or have questions about your home.
