How to design your own home
So you already decided that you want to design your next home? It’s not a surprise. If you are like most future homeowners, you have an image in mind of exactly how the “dream house” should look, and it is rare to find a home in existence that matches your vision. There are many things to consider when designing your own home, so here’s how to take this process to the highest level so your next home can be the home of your dreams.
Start with a vision Get inspired. Before you draw a single line, consult an architect, or buy that great new application program that will do everything, consider your dreams. At the very beginning of this process, it is not about measures of tables or setbacks or even location plans. It’s how you define your desires. Much of this you already know, is your dream after all!
Visit your favorite neighborhoods. There is a reason why they are your favorites, and it is probably because you love the homes that are there. Do not take into account the price or feasible yet. What you are looking for is what inspires you.Attends home inaugurations. Look for homes that are for sale in the neighborhoods you love, and during this phase make a small habit of visiting sample homes on weekends. Each one of them will have characteristics that inspire you, and characteristics that will be indifferent to you. Take note of each one of them: it is very important to know what you do not care about, or really dislike.
Take pictures. Take every angle of every building you like, inside and out. You will find more details in the photos than what you saw in person, and after visiting dozens of houses, these will be a good way to remember that thing that you loved from the beginning.
Get organized. Dreaming is good, and it is vital to have a vision of what you want to achieve, but achieving it can be much harder if you are constantly looking for that paper cut that you think left you there. Get a solid, grid-bound, fabric-bound notebook (commonly called “computer books”), and keep it with you until your home is finished. Its squared and numbered pages will help you keep your thoughts organized and your drawings well cared for. You can use it to paste photos with glue or tape, make a list of quotes, contractors, numbers, and anything related to the project. Dedicate a couple of pages up in the center for things that your house should have – be it 3 bathrooms or bamboo floor, these are things you need in your house. Dedicate one or two pages to make a list of each feature and wish you have selected from various sources, and call it “Wish List.” This can be anything from a way of conditioning a bathroom with Italian tile.
Paint the big picture. Now that you’re specifying what things you love and want, it’s time to focus.Do you prefer urban or rural housing? Do your needs put you in a large house with space for children to play and dogs run, or a cozy ‘bungalow’ for two? Do you prefer modern and well-defined or detailed lines and handmade?Are you happy with the normal building techniques, or are you considering sustainable designs?Perhaps the most important of all considerations, what is your budget? These questions will help guide you as you begin to focus your vision on viable steps.The more information you can give your architect or builder about the details of your image, the more likely you are to get not only the design of your dreams, but also keep you within your budget.
Find a location. This is where the tires touch the road … or perhaps more properly, where the shovel touches the mud. Before you can really delve into the design of the house of your dreams, you will need to know what you will be building. The landscape matters. Building on a hill has a different set of requirements and design challenges than building on flat ground. An area surrounded by many trees can make a big difference in terms of windows and lighting, not to mention solar panels or other energy considerations.Many of the nearest motorways or other areas that produce noise will need more attention in acoustics than isolated rural locations. Access to utilities and other services varies by location. Make sure you have chosen a location that includes things that we generally take for granted.Zoning can make the difference between making your dream home a reality, or a house full of commitments. Get the help of a real estate professional who can help you calculate your real estate options from an objective point of view.
Design a design Consult a professional architect. Designing a home should be a project that gives you years of satisfaction when your dream is fulfilled. The best way to make sure that this happens as successfully as possible (and more effectively) is to bring an architect to the current design process. Your part of the design is to know what you want. The part of the architect is to help you make your design goals work, and steer you in the design traps.
