Planning Ahead 

Before you fall in love with one of the plans, consider these essential factors:

Land: Where Will Your Vision Live?

Do you already own land? If so, is it suitable for the type of home you want? Factor in things like terrain, accessibility, zoning regulations, and utility hookups. If you need to buy land, the cost and availability will massively influence your project. Start exploring early.


Budget: Money Matters

Considering your budget early in the process is key!  While SimpleStart Designs offer a streamlined approach, remember that factors like site-specific requirements, customizations, and your chosen finishes will all influence the final project cost. Get a realistic idea of:

  • The cost per square foot in your area. Ask local realtors, bankers, and builders.

  • Potential additional expenses (site preparation, custom features, etc.)

  • Be honest about your financial resources.

Financing: Making It Happen

Financing your new home build requires careful planning. Explore different mortgage options, including traditional loans and construction loans, if you're building from scratch. Pre-approval can streamline the process and give you a clear picture of your budget. Don't be afraid to shop around and compare lenders to find the best rates and terms for your situation.

Builders: Finding the Right Partner

Finding a good fit with your general contractor is crucial for a successful and stress-free building experience. Your GC is essentially the captain of your project, overseeing everything from scheduling subcontractors to managing the budget. A skilled and compatible contractor will have the experience to handle potential challenges, communicate clearly throughout the process, and advocate for your vision. A strong relationship with your GC builds trust, ensures your goals are aligned, and ultimately contributes to a finished home you'll love for years to come.


Thinking Beyond the Basics

  • Design Style: What speaks to your soul? Rustic mountain estate, contemporary masterpiece? Inspiration is key.

  • Size and Functionality: How much space do you need? Consider current and potential future needs.

  • Timeline: Are you in a rush? How long is the "building season" where you are building?

With these things sorted out, you'll be armed with the right questions for a productive conversation with the designers at Arrow Timber.

Your dream home starts here!
