Vital Information For Your New Home Building Contractor

When you hire a new home building contractor to construct your house, you will need to provide them with some information so they know what to build. If you're not specific enough during this crucial step, you could wind up with a house that doesn't suit your needs. 

Here are some of the things a new home building contractor will want to know:

How Much Square Footage?

How big do you want the house to be? You should figure out how many total rooms you want and approximately how large you want them each to be so you have an idea of the total square footage you require. Square footage is a critical aspect of designing a house, so the earlier you have the estimate, the better. 

How Many Floors?

Do you want a single-story home, two stories, or more? Some people prefer having all of their living space on one floor, while others like to build up so they require a smaller area for building. You should also let your contractor know which rooms you want on each floor. 

Basement or Slab Foundation?

The contractor can build your new home on a basement or slab foundation. You need a solid base for a home to prevent it from sinking into the ground. Basements will give you extra living space and storm protection, but a slab foundation is less expensive. 

How Many Bedrooms?

Many people consider the number of bedrooms the most crucial detail when building a home, so make sure you think it through before letting the contractor know. If you choose the wrong number, it can create lots of problems down the line. You must remember to consider additional children being born, whether you want anyone sharing a bedroom, and whether you wish to have any guest rooms. 

How Many Bathrooms?

Once your home is finished, adding an additional bathroom is difficult, and it probably won't be in an ideal location. You should think carefully about how many bathrooms you want and where you want them to be and let the contractor know. 

How Do You Want the Layout?

Do you want lots of walls in your new home, or do you prefer an open layout? Do you want your bedrooms close to one another or spaced apart? A home's layout plays a significant role in how comfortable and convenient it is for whoever is living in it, so choose carefully and work with your contractor to come up with solutions for any issues you foresee with the layout.
