The custom home construction process is highly misunderstood by a lot of people in the USA. Many prospective homeowners initially start out with the intention of getting a custom home built. But, ultimately they end up purchasing a home which has already been built.
The main reason why many potential homeowners abandon the idea of custom home construction and go for an already-built home is that they lack the clarity about the sequence in which the whole process needs to be carried out. Most of them would purchase the land first. Then they would hire a designer or an architect to design the style of the home and come up with a blueprint for the construction of the custom home. Once they have the plan ready, they would then go to a builder to get the plan realized. This is a completely wrong approach when it comes to custom home construction.
When it comes to a custom home project, it is important to hire the builder first. The builder is the most important resource for the successful construction of a luxury custom home. Once the builder is finalized, you can then go on and talk to the designer or the architect. As a matter of fact, even the purchase of the land should come after hiring the builder.
