First Steps; the Right Lot

Once you decide that you want to build that custom home you have been dreaming about you will need to find the right lot.  Choosing a lot that has the qualities necessary to satisfy your vision and budget is an essential first step.  The lot can have the most impact on your budget and what you are able to build.  It is vitally important that you critically assess the characteristics of each lot that you are considering and how it will affect construction of your home.

Every lot is unique with its own special views that you want to capture and views you don’t want to see.  The size & shape of the lot probably will determine the floor plan of your home. Lots with dramatic topography may have increased steps requiring additional site work and the need for retaining walls.  Are there boulder outcroppings?  Will there be privacy issues for you or your neighbors?  These may impact your budget and construction schedule however they also may provide dramatic design opportunities.
