Planning the budget, finding a suitable plot of land, choosing the type and size of house and drawing up the floor plan: if you are planning to build your own house, there are lots of decisions to be made. As a future home-owner, you therefore need to invest a lot of time and passion in your building project.
To avoid losing sight of the big picture when planning your house, it is a good idea to draw up a checklist including all the tasks you need to complete. Read on to find out how to plan your house yourself and the important points to be aware of.
When planning your house, the very first things you need to do are:
- clarify the financing,
- look for and buy a suitable plot of land (if you don’t already have one),
- check the development plan for any potential restrictions and
- decide on a construction method and type of house.
Plan a sufficient buffer for all steps. This applies to both schedules and financing. Unforeseen events always occur. So it’s good to have some financial breathing space and time to resolve any eventuality without stress.
