The construction of a custom home happens in phases. Building a custom home is quite complicated. Hence, it takes place in phases. Otherwise , it would become difficult to manage the whole process.
The primary phase of custom home building is the discovery phase. This is the phase where the homeowner, architect and the builder sit together and discuss about the project. They would chalk out what to do and what not to do. The discovery phases includes aspects such as plot hunting, design creation and so on. The budget would also be decided during the discovery phase. This is a phase which should not be rushed.
Even though the professionals involved discuss about the design of the home during the discovery phase, there would be a separate design phase where the home designer goes into the details and develops the blueprint for the home.
Once the design phase is done, the construction phase would then begin. Even though the custom home builder would be involved in the earlier phases itself, his real job starts during the construction phase and the realization of the design happens. This is the longest phase of custom home construction.
