It’s very exciting to build your own custom home. But there’s so much more to building a home than decorating with the perfect furniture. One of the most important things you have to do is to find the right land for your home and there are several factors to take into consideration. Here are 3 things you need to know about your land before you build.
1.) Soil and Sewer Conditions: think you can identify good land just by eyeballing it? Think again! You want to explore all of your options before you build on lowlands and rocky soil. Remember that clay drains poorly while sandy soil drains very quickly. Nearby bodies of water can also be contaminated by your sewer septic system, so you’d have to take these into consideration if you’re going to build your custom home.
2.) Service Location: while living away from the hustle and bustle of the city on a peaceful little hill may sound appealing, you still want to make sure you’re building your custom home near service locations. Aside from hospitals, schools, and police stations, you’d also want to consider power, water, and telephone and internet availability.
3.) Disaster Areas: choosing land to build your custom home on requires more than visualizing what the perfect view from your balcony will look like. You need to find out if the land you’re considering building on does not fall on fault lines or is not affected by mudslides, floods, and other natural disasters.
It takes a lot of research to identify your land before you start building your custom home, but it’s worth the effort if you want to be fully satisfied with your custom home. Crystal Creek Builders knows how important it is to know your site before you build. That’s why we offer a free lot evaluation. A home is only as solid as its foundation so before building a home, we will first meet with clients to evaluate their land. The site or lot evaluation is a free visual assessment that we provide and we consider several factors to help in designing and pricing your new home including soil conditions, power availability, water and sewer location, and many more.
