Building a custom home can be exciting and inspiring, but it can also present its fair share of challenges. With hundreds of decisions to make and account for, things may not always go as planned. To help you be aware of the most common issues when building a custom home, we have compiled a comprehensive guide to provide you with more information on these common issues. 

Misuse Of Your Budget

To avoid wasting your budget, bringing a builder on board early in the architectural design phase is essential. At Accessible Home Builders, we understand the importance of working collaboratively with you to see your plans come to life. We can provide updated estimates for your plans, allowing you to quickly catch any issues and make tweaks before your architectural plans are finalized. We will help you prioritize your needs and guide you on which materials and design elements will maximize value. 

Issues With Permits 

When building a house, obtaining permits, licenses, and HOA approvals is a crucial part of the process. It’s also essential to understand that obtaining permits can take longer than expected. However, staying in touch with your contractor about permits and upcoming inspections can help you anticipate any delays or problems that may arise. That’s why it is wise to choose a contractor such as us with the years of experience we obtaining permits, licenses, and HOA approvals.

Unexpected Delays And Costs

When planning to build a house, knowing there might be unexpected delays and unforeseen costs is important. To prepare for such situations, discussing with your custom home builder what could happen and how much to budget for unforeseen expenses is advisable. Construction delays can be caused by various factors that may not directly affect you but could still affect the construction of your home. To avoid any surprises, adding some extra time to your timeline beyond the given delivery date is recommended, just like you would do with your financial budget.
