Ready to Design Your Own Custom Home? Design Checklist

Considering a new custom home? Planning to tackle the project on your own? We created a handy checklist to help you determine if you’re prepared for the challenge. Consider the following questions:

 

❑ Do I know exactly what my family needs and wants and will I be able to translate those requirements into an affordable, efficient and realistic design?

❑ Am I fully aware of the opportunities and restrictions of my property?

❑ Will I know all of the relevant municipal (e.g., zoning, codes, bylaws) and provincial legislation that applies to my project and can I produce the detailed drawings/documents required for the permit application?

❑ Do I have detailed knowledge of the process I need to follow to design and build my home and the time and resources to manage the project?

❑ Can I calculate a realistic cost estimate and know the budget I have will be sufficient to cover all project costs? Do I have everything I need to secure the financing?
