Only a few people can do all the steps required to build a custom home, but you can act as your very own general contractor and hire other subcontractors in the order they are needed.
There might be certain aspects of the labor that you can do on your own, but only by getting a good understanding of the whole custom home building process could you decide which tasks need to be done.
This guide will outline the basics as well as the chronology of organizing the construction of your custom home all by yourself. Hiring subcontractors when needed and saving cash where you can by using sweat equity is the single and most effective money saving technique whenever it concerns building a house.
Site and Home Building Basics
The first thing you need to do is to get situated. So, you need to clear out the building site and make sure there are no debris at the ground level as well as 25 feet around your preferred home perimeter. Your surveyor will stake out the lot according to the original plot drawings that show the boundaries of the property. Make changes to the topography of the site when needed to change the water flow across to the site. This usually requires a general contractor with earth moving tools.
