Are you getting ready to have a custom home designed to build on your property? Here are a few services the home designer you hire should be able to offer.
One important service your custom home designer should offer is unlimited consultation meetings. You can expect to sit down with your service provider to initially discuss your home design and the specific amenities, features, and structural styles you prefer. You'll likely also have subsequent meetings during the days and weeks afterward to discuss design specifics and to start putting together sketches. But you should also have the ability to schedule additional consultation meetings even after the actual home design process has started.
Whether you have questions about the design process or concerns about the design timelines, your service provider should be happy to meet you in person and address your issues so you can gain a clear idea of how your project is coming along and see reports and designs for yourself. Your designer should be available even after your completed house design has been signed, sealed, and delivered.
Free Design Revisions
While you may feel that you know exactly what you want in a custom home now, things may change as your design starts coming to life and you see how things are playing out on paper. You might find that a closet you originally wanted in the hallway just looks weird when added to the design on paper, and you want to move it elsewhere. You may even decide to add another room to the home because you've found the money for it in your budget.
No matter the case, your service provider should offer you the opportunity to make design revisions at least once or twice at no extra charge to you. Make sure you get the revisions stipulations in writing so you know exactly when your revision deadlines are and what can and can't be revised.
Once your custom home design has been completed, you'll have to get permits from your county building department to legally build the house on your property. You should be able to count on your home designer to apply for the permits for you so all you'll have to do is hire a contractor to get the building work done.
They'll handle all the paperwork and make sure that you have plenty of copies of everything that is submitted to the building department. You can pass the copies off to your contractor to ensure that everyone is on the same page.
