How to Design Custom Build Homes

Designing custom build homes may seem overwhelming, but it can be incredibly exciting. Stellco homes help you with the first most important step which is finding self build serviced plots that are ready to be built on so you can start your first few steps to designing the house of your dreams. The following four steps can get you started on the right path.


Keep It Simple

For now, you need nothing more than a pen and some paper. You do not have to be a professional designer to design your dream home. You only need to start with some basic information. 


Answer Relevant Questions

Some of the most important facts you need to be clear on are those such as how many bedrooms you want and the number of bathrooms you need. You can start adding information as you go along but be sure to have clarity on such details.

As you do so, be sure to think about the future. If you plan on having kids- or having more kids- later down the line, or if you anticipate your mother coming to stay quite a bit, make sure you factor that into your plan.


Make Any Extra Notes

After you have written down the basics, you can dive deeper. Start thinking about things such as:

  • Do you want a separate laundry room?

  • Would you like a bay window in your family room?

  • Do you appreciate chandeliers?

  • Would you prefer one floor or two?

  • Do you need an attached garage?

  • What type of siding would you like?

  • Would you like a winding staircase?

  • Does anyone need a lift for a wheelchair?


This is your dream home, so make a note of anything you want in your home. Don’t hold back - Stellco’s professional home designers can help you come up with the perfect solution.


Look for Some Inspiration

Take a look on the Internet or browse home design magazines for inspiration. Find some things you love and would like to incorporate into your dream home.


Now that you have your dream in mind, it’s time to take the next step. Stellco Homes custom home designers are ready and excited to start this new journey with you.
