If you know anything about building custom homes Vancouver WA then you’re probably saying “there are a lot more than nine big mistakes?”

Yes, having a custom home built can be daunting and frustrating, but Tuscany Homes wants the experience to be as enjoyable possible.

To that end, we’ve compiled a list of the nine biggest mistakes to avoid when building a new home. In this installment, part one of three, we look at mistakes made about design and hiring contractors.

Not Knowing Your Home’s Design Before Building. You need to know more than just the floor plan of your new home before building starts. You need to know your home’s design.

If you don’t know your future design elements, then you could find yourself holding up construction. Holding up construction is going to cost you big bucks.

Frequently Changing Your Mind During Construction. This piggy backs on our first mistake. You can’t keep changing your mind while contractors are working on your home. You need to pick something and stay with it.

Hiring the Wrong People. Hiring a third cousin who’s “between jobs” or the best friend of your favorite neighbor’s son-in-law might sound like good ideas, but it could potentially lead to headaches and financial woes.

Those that build custom homes Vancouver WA implore you to only hire licensed and properly insured contractors. Also, you should ask for and review references.
