Building a custom home is incredibly rewarding, and the beginning phase of building your dream custom home is the most funniest part of the whole project. Well, at least for me it was! From planning all the cool features, to deciding on flooring and counter tops, this is a great time to really get your creative juices flowing. Though, putting it all together with your contractor may be a bit stressful, it will be incredibly rewarding in the end with the help of the right Cape Cod architect. Let’s not forget, the fun part!
You’ve finally signed the contract with a trusted premier Cape Cod architecture firm, and you’re ready to start building your new custom home that’s been tailor-made to you. So, now what? A great way to enhance the experience of building your custom home, and make it even more fun, is to share the experience with your loved ones, like family and friends. If you’re like me and always looking for cool new ways to spice things up, check out these 3 great ideas, from INTEGRATA architecture + construction for your next custom home building project!
Step One: Create a Blog
Building your dream home is exciting, and you want to share the experience of building with family and friends. Let’s face it, what’s the fun in building your dream home if you can’t brag just a little. What better way to get started then with a blog! Your blog can include written updates, progress photos, and even fun little videos. Not only will you make the entire process more fun, but you’ll also make your family and friends feel like they’re experiencing all the excitement, right along with you, every step of the way.
Step Two: Ask a Friend
Can’t decide between the nice, clean look of bamboo, or the cool rich hardwood? Not exactly sure which tile to choose for your master bathroom or kitchen backsplash? Have a slumber party, open a few bottles of wine, and make it a fun night night for all! Need help making a quick decision? Post photos of both options on Facebook or Instagram, and ask which one they like best. However you ask your family and friends, don’t forget to make it a fun way to enroll the help in your custom home design process.
Step Three: Celebrate
There’s nothing like the feeling of watching the walls go up on the home you personally designed yourself. It’s the moment that makes your heart pound as you realize your “dream” home is becoming a reality. Celebrate every milestone with family and friends by posting regular updates about your home’s progress. Create your very own hashtag like #integratadreamhome so everyone can see and keep track of how your home has progressed from week to week.
Once your is home is finally complete, there’s nothing left to do than to throw an amazing housewarming party! Celebrate with the people you love, and the ones who happily joined in your custom home building journey, your family and friends.
