Would you finally like to have your own dream home? Building your own home will allow you to have a home that mirrors your reality. Whether you want to build it yourself or hire a general contractor, our specialists can assist you in your decision-making.

Choosing the Right Lot

Choosing a lot that suits you is not always an easy task. It’s important to carefully consider your requirements in order to choose the right lot.

Lot Location and Municipal Regulations

Lot location plays an important role since it will greatly influence the lifestyle that future owners are looking for. It’s important to consider the lot’s proximity to hospitals, schools, the transit system, shops and roads since they will be decisive factors. Lot choice will be quite different from one person to another depending on your tastes, hobbies and interests. In addition, city regulations and urban planning standards may limit your choice of roof, color or the types of materials you are allowed to use, depending on where the lot is located.

Lot Status and Desired Positioning of the Home

Sun exposure often determines the positioning that the home will have. Therefore, one must consider this aspect when choosing a lot. In addition, soil composition will be an important factor in the type of foundations required and therefore, in choosing plans.

Access to Water, Sewer and Electricity Services

Depending on the case, it’s quite possible that you’ll have to ensure access to services provided by the city or dig a well and septic field. In either case, costs can be substantial. In addition, access to electricity may cost more if your lot is far from other properties that have already been built. Ideally, you should have a study done on this subject to properly assess the costs and avoid unpleasant surprises.

Deciding between Building Your Own Home and Using a General Contractor

Whether you are very capable and decide to carry out part of the work yourself, or want to manage the entire project, building a home by yourself is a solution that may please you. For those who want less hassle, using the services of a general contractor is a great way to simplify your life. A general contractor will know how to guide you during every step of the construction and can refer you to the best subcontractors.
