Building a custom home can be a huge undertaking even if you have entrusted the project in the hands of an experienced builder. You will get ideas and inputs from all directions on how to get your new custom home built. Filtering out all of those stuff is in itself a huge task. But that’s something you cannot avoid.
When you talk to people about building a custom home, you will get unique ideas. Each person will have his/her own ideas and its not often that you get duplicate ideas. It’s actually a good thing because it will enhance your own project particularly if you have no experience or ideas about custom homes in general. But, it can get overwhelming sometimes.
In the initial phase of your project, you can talk to different people and collect ideas. You can call this discovery phase. You don’t have to decide anything at this phase. After this phase, you can start going through the ideas and filter out what you don’t like and come up with the final list. During this phase, you should not get anymore ideas.
