Building your very own custom home is an exciting experience – but it’s also a long journey, with many moving parts and different parties.
One of the best ways to succeed in the construction phase of your new custom home is to ensure that you’re properly prepared with an accurate construction timeline and that you’re equipped with the best tools, custom home building team, and processes on your side.
The fact is, you’ll need to make a lot of important decisions throughout the construction of your new custom home, and every single one of them plays into the construction management process. While your custom home builder and construction supervisor will be overseeing the onsite day-to-day operations, you play a key role in the construction management process and will stay involved through regular meetings with your team.
A recent survey found that new-home buyers want more proactive communications about their home construction – and this makes perfect sense. Building a custom home is not a black box process, so there’s no reason for you to feel in the dark as to what’s happening with your project.
To help you get started, we’ve provided some key questions to help you choose the right builder for your custom home project. At the top of the list are questions related to construction management process, including project management and change orders.
