There are several common mistakes when you choose to build a custom home with someone other than Craftmaster Homes LC.  Before you make a final decision, give us a call! We would love to sit down and discuss what Craftmaster Homes LC can provide.

Building the Home Yourself
Building a home yourself always sounds like a great idea in the beginning..and then you start the process. Many times you get in over your head and level of expertise and have to seek outside assistance. Craftmaster Homes LC brings over 25 years of experience in custom home building to our projects. The majority of people who choose to build their own home never actually complete it. This might be reason enough to make a down payment on a home that is completed rather than sinking money into something, just to live in an unfinished home for years to come.

Running Out of Money
A serious issue that people who build a custom home encounter is running out of money. It is advantageous to secure your financing and lock in your budget before getting started building your custom home. Craftmaster Homes LC will work with you during the entire building process, beginning to end, to make sure we are staying on budget. Changes will come up, but those changes will be discussed with you to ensure there are no surprises in spending. This is another reason to choose a custom home building company over building yourself. You may save on labor costs, but you will not have access to lower cost materials and construction management skills needed to complete a home within your budget.

Blueprint and Placement Confusion 
Correctly building a home can be difficult. Following directions and blueprints is vital to getting the home you desire and the right design. Without much construction experience it is easy to build a whole room or layout infrastructure in the incorrect place. This will delay the completion of the build, as well as cost more money to undo the work. Other than not budgeting and planning correctly, this is one of the mistakes that dooms home building projects most.

Foundation Issues 
A faulty foundation can sink a home, figuratively and literally. It can cause your home to collapse. More likely is a slow degradation of your home over time, leading to leaks in the cracks of the foundation and plumbing. A faulty foundation means major reconstruction or ongoing repairs for your home. It is possible that your home could become condemned. That’s an expensive price to pay just because your builders were not thorough or because your foundation was improperly inspected. Regardless of who you choose to build your custom home, make sure you ask, time and time again, whether or not the foundation is secure.
