As exciting as building a new home is, it does require a lot of work. To avoid the hassle of hiring each professional and supervising their work yourself, opting for a turn-key solution can be the perfect decision. When a single firm is hired to manage the entire building project, from checking on zoning to the new home’s interior design, not only will it save a lot of headaches but also time and money.
The very first step to take before building your new home – and even before getting the permit – is to find out what your land is zoned for. If you haven’t made your purchase yet, it would be a great idea to check that first, before buying, to determine whether the home you envision can be built.
So you have a piece of land and you are ready to build your new home… Not so fast! There is a series of steps to take before any construction can begin. Even before you can get your hands on a building permit – which will allow you to start building – there is zoning, financing, surveying, architectural and engineering work to deal with.
