The design stage is the most exciting phase of the construction process for our homeowners. It involves sitting with our professional design team and letting us know all the rooms, special areas, outdoor living spaces, and any little detail you want to add to your new custom home in Calgary.
Your custom home design is the base for a successful building project. We will start the construction process only once the design stage is ready, the drawings are completed, and we have the necessary permits. Read about all the details of the design process in our article The 4 Phases of the Custom Home Design and learn more about the Building Permit Basics for Your New Custom Home.
Picture Your Custom Home Before Building
Choosing an experienced home builder with a highly capable design team will help you create a detailed scope of work, but most importantly to be able to visualize how your custom home will look. Additionally, having a definite and approved drawing for your custom home will allow your custom home builder to create a realistic timeline for your project.
Create an Accurate Budget
Your final design will allow your Calgary custom home builder to create a more accurate budget for your project. Once your design is finalized, you can make selections of your flooring, building materials, plumbing, and lighting fixtures, stairs, countertops, cabinetry, among other items. Once this is done, you can make any necessary adjustments to ensure the design and selections of your new custom home meet your desired budget.
Make Changes Before Breaking Ground
Another essential feature of the design stage of your infill home is that any changes are made before breaking ground. This includes enhancing your home's energy efficiency, the extent you wish to implement home automation, and any change in your building materials to make your home greener. Both your experienced designer and bespoke home builder can guide you and provide you the necessary information to adapt your new dream home to your wishes.
