Because we care about our customers, we encourage you to do a bit of research before setting your sight on a design that you might like.

So without further ado, here are 3 mistakes to avoid when building your home:

1. Badly placed rooms. We recommend that you spend some time thinking about each room and its function. As an example: Do you want a garage? If you do, then how is it going to affect the rest of the house? Badly placed rooms can be quite nightmarish. Yes, that’s right: Don’t ever place the master bedroom near the garage.

2. Useless rooms. Sure, having your own in-home bar is an appealing idea. But realistically speaking, how often are you going to use it? What if you decide to stop drinking in a few years? Think well before adding non-traditional rooms to your home. To avoid further headaches, you should also ensure that those rooms can easily be changed into “regular” rooms.

3. Poorly planned home. Right now you might be young and childless, but those things change before you know it. Even if you tell everyone that you don’t want kids, people have changed their mind before. When making such a big investment, it is always good to plan ahead. Think about incorporating a guest bedroom that could easily be changed into a child’s room, perhaps. Also think about how easy your home will be to navigate through when you are older.
