Planning on Building a New Home?

Wednesday, April 30th, 2014 by Nick Cohen

Setting out on building a new home is an exciting and intimidating adventure. If you’re considering taking this path, you’re probably filled with both excitement and anxiety: there will be stressful months ahead, and there isn’t any way to eliminate all of the stress.

However, you can eliminate most of it—as much as possible—with proper planning and the right contractor working on your project. We’ll look at what you can do at the beginning of this new adventure to thrilling, not terrifying.

Considerations for Building A New Home

  • Look for an “under one roof” contractor: What does this mean? It means you should try to reduce the number of different contractors you will need to deal with during your home construction. The more contractors involved, the more chance of misunderstandings and miscommunications that will lead to delays, cost overruns, and of course, extra stress for you. Look for a comprehensive new construction service that has architects, engineers, and builders under one company roof.
  • Find a contractor with advanced design technology: One of the best ways to relieve your tension about the project is if you can have it realized long before the construction work actually begins. This means computer-aided design that goes beyond standard blueprints. Work with a designer who will provide you the best sense ahead of time as to what the final product will look like. (Which will also help you keep the project within your set budget and remove concerns about cost overruns.)
  • Let someone else sweat “the small stuff”: Since you are most likely not involved in the new construction business yourself, there will be many aspects of building a new house that you won’t have yet considered. We can’t list all of them here, but we shouldn’t need to: taking care of all the things you haven’t thought of is the job of a quality construction company. There are issues of insulation, energy efficiency, electrical hook-ups, water pressure for the plumbing, and the many different local permits…. If you find the right contractor, all this “small stuff” that can drain away the joy of designing your own home will rest in the hands the people who can best take care of it.

You can see how important it is to hire the right contractor for the job. Advanced Builders & Contractors combines all the tasks necessary for ideal new home construction. We take care of the designing and building, the engineering, and all the red tape problems that might get in the way. With our talented and experienced home builders in Hollywood Hills, CA, you will experience the thrill of the adventure of building a new home with few of the perils.
