Maybe you knew from the very first what style house you wanted. For instance, maybe you've always had your heart set on a Mediterranean style home or on a colonial style home. No matter the exterior of your custom home construction, it might be that you are still in the designing part of the interior of the house. If that is true, here are some ideas that might cause you to brain storm other ideas to end up with exactly the house you've dreamed of.
A Two-Story Home - Have you decided that you'll get more square footage in a two-story house because the lot your house will be on is not huge?
A One-Story House - If you have large acreage, you might be wanting a one-story home. That will be especially nice as you get older and you may not want to deal with climbing stairs.
If you go with the two-story house, think of having a terrace upstairs that will overlook your garden. For a one-story house, design the outdoor patio to go right into the back yard.
Once you have decided on the basic interior design, meet with a custom home construction agent. He or she will have the experience and the training to fine tune your own design. For instance, if you go with the living room and dining room being one great room, the construction manager might suggest that an attractive archway separate the two rooms visually.
