Prairie Pine Court and Custom Home Design Process

Custom home design’s rewards and challenges will be spotlighted in this series of blog Posts.

Many consumers are leery of designing and building a custom home and for many good reasons. As a professional building designer for over 35 years I have seen firsthand the benefits as well as the pitfalls experienced in the process. It doesn’t matter whether you have built a home before or where it is being built. These problems are almost universal. I will be posting a series of blogs to highlight the ups and downs as well as how to make the home design endeavor an enjoyable one.

While there is much more than these issues to consider in the home building process. These seem to be the most common problems I encounter. Addressing these areas in a healthy fashion will minimize any possible pain when designing and building a new custom home.
