80% of new home designs never get built
Would it surprise you to find out that somewhere around 80% of people designing new home plans never get built? The reason for this is that the vast majority of projects come in way over budget.
Building designers and architects may have a brief discussion with potential homeowners about their budgets. However, these professionals may have little knowledge of building costs and may underestimate expenses, or spec items or methods that burden the job with an unnecessarily high price.
A simple solution
Involve a home builder in the design phase. A home builder has the experience to point out many of the cost implications of the building site, or of adding different architectural features.
By involving the home builder in the design phase, you may save thousands of dollars in redesign fees, as well as months of wasted time during construction.
