Advice From a Calgary Custom Home Builder
Building a home? Here are 10 things for you to consider.
Building a home is an exciting process. While your home builder will take care of the physical labour, here are 10 things to consider before that first shovel (or excavator) hits the dirt.
1.Pick an Experienced Builder
Your home is not only a reflection of you; it is a reflection of your home builder. Green Cedar Homes is a family-owned business of professionals who have specialized in construction and engineering for decades.
2. Pick a Reputable Builder
Reputation is everything. Green Cedar Homes is proud to have an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau.
3. Location! Location! Location!
Choosing a lot location is arguably the most important consideration (after choosing your home builder of course.) Consider factors such as local amenities, walkability, schooling and transportation.
4. Lot Orientation
While lot location is paramount, for some owners, lot orientation is equally important. Do you want sunlight to flood your backyard from sunrise to sunset? Or would you like Mother Nature’s help melting the snow off your driveway and sidewalk?
Absolutely everyone has a budget. We believe in delivering high-quality work without breaking the bank.
Do you entertain? Do you have kids? Is the kitchen the heart of your home? How you live your life can impact your home’s layout and design.
Everyone’s value set is as unique as his or her home. Consider what you value most in your life and determine how your home could best reflect that.
8. Long-term Goals
How long are you planning on living in your new home? Do you have
