There are many issues one would face during a custom home project. Here is an overview of some of the common issues that might arise during a custom home project.
Mismanagement of the budget is the most common problem of a custom home project. Custom homes are usually very expensive and require a very large budget. Inexperienced builders may not handle the budget well. It is important to make sure that the construction plan and the budget are in sync at all times. If not, the costs can easily exceed the budget.
Deviation from the planned design is another common issue that may arise during a custom home project. This can happen when there is no proper communication between the designer and the builder. I have seen many projects where the designer and the builder don’t talk to each other at all. The designer would in fact exit the project right after the design phase. This is a mistake because builders can easily misinterpret the designs and build something else other than what the client had initially envisioned.
Delays in obtaining the necessary permits and approvals is another common issue with a custom home project.
