To build the perfect home, is one of the sweetest victories in life. Imagine if you will, a kitchen that has everything that you could possibly ever use, all at your fingertips. Imagine a sink that holds as many dirty dishes as you want it to hold, and a dishwasher that will clean them for you. How about a bathroom with a built in magazine caddy, or a bedroom that isn’t dwarfed by that extra-large California King that you refuse to live, or sleep without. Realizing this dream begins with a phone call to some custom home builders.
You can start the process by building your dream home in your mind. Start by picturing where you would like every room in your home to be located, and then start filling those rooms with furniture, but only those things that you want. Then make a sketch, or even a drawing of what you can imagine. This helps you get perspective. The hard part for many people is dimensions. Some people make tiny paper models that are complete with tiny pieces of furniture and appliances that are also made of paper. This only works if you can make the entire thing to scale, but if you can, it is amazingly easy to design your home.
Once you have an idea of the size of your home, and just how it should look on the inside, then you should really start thinking about the outside. Remember that this is your dream home, so there is no such thing as too much indulging. It’s alright to plan on that swimming pool with the waterfall on one side and the hot tub on the other. While you are planning, you might as well put your swimming pool in the center of a nice garden, and don’t forget the back deck where you can entertain guests. The tough decision is whether or not you should put the barbeque in the kitchen, or on the deck. Professional custom home builders can help you with those types of decisions. They have the experience that you might lack.
Choosing where to put your dream home is as much a part of the dream as the actual home. Should you live on a beach or on a mountain? Are you a city person, or is it part of your dream to get away from the city? I know that my dream home is being built in Annapolis, Maryland. It is a city that is steeped in tradition and is also family oriented. It is a beautiful sea port that is large and yet maintains its personal small town feel. It is part of my dream, what is yours?
