There likely aren’t many people who are thinking about building their own home at the moment due to the current worldwide Covid-19 health crisis. But this may actually be the prime time to begin designing a custom home. Planning and designing your dream home with a designer and builder typically takes several weeks and by getting started now you may be able to have it completed by the end of the year.
COVID-19 has certainly taken its deadly toll across the globe but fortunately it will pass and life will return to some type of normal routine when a vaccine is introduced. By planning your dream home now, you’ll be ready to start building as soon as the crisis is over.
Why design your home now?
Designing and building a new home consists of a lot of hard work and it takes time to make sure all pre-construction preparations are in place. There’s no time like the present to get started and be prepared once the pandemic restrictions have been lifted.
When planning to construct a new home you’ll need to come up with a budget and make sure your vision can be achieved at that price. The size and specifics of the home will depend on your budget and enlisting the aid of a builder is highly recommended to make sure you’re on target. A builder will be able to offer their professional advice and expertise when it comes to erecting the finest home for the most affordable price.
Make the most of your free time
Many people are still working through the Covid-19 pandemic but if you happen to have some free time on your hands it’s a good idea to put it to use. This could be the ideal time to start doing some research and planning when it comes to a new home. You may have the time to seek out a builder who can offer their design and constructing services during this critical stage of the project.
Life during COVID-19
The Covid-19 restrictions imposed by the government are justifiable and understandable as they are designed to protect society’s most vulnerable members. However, the good news is they don’t stop you from getting started on your new home. You can always get the wheels in motion when it comes to designing your home, finding a builder and getting quotes.
Most professional builders can still be contacted via telephone and email and many of them may even be able to meet virtually with you online. This enables you to go about your business while still practising safe social distance etiquette. We have been working with homeowners during this crisis by using virtual consultations to answer questions, suggest ideas, and to kickstart the planning process.
Getting a head start
Once the pandemic has passed or eased up there will likely be a mad dash for the services and expertise of professional designers and builders. Finding the perfect builder may be a more difficult task in the near future because of this and you could be disappointed. If you don’t want to be left on the outside looking in you may want to get the jump on other new homeowners.
