Designing a new custom home or cottage can be a complex and unnerving process. To most clients this process is new and it’s difficult to know where to start. This simple guide answers a few of the most common questions:
- What is the design process for my new custom home or cottage?
- What services do architectural designers provide?
- What is involved at each step of the process?
You may ask yourself, “Why do I need an architectural designer?” and “Why not design my own custom home?” These are good questions! In this easy-to-read, one-page guide we address those questions and more.
Finding the right architectural designer to work with you on your project is critical not only for a successful outcome but also for the quality of the journey along the way. Use this checklist resource as your guide when you interview architectural designers to help find the best fit for you.
One of the most common questions we’re asked is, “How much will my dream home cost to build?” This calculator will give you a “guessimate” of the cost. Of course, there are hundreds of factors that can affect the actual build cost, so this is a general estimate only. Budgeting is an integral part of the architectural design process, and as you progress through each phase, the budget becomes more and more accurate.
