Choosing your general contractor first
Would you like to save thousands on your home remodel project, choose your general contractor first. Here’s a valuable design tip and we know it sounds counter intuitive. Before you look for an architect to design your home, choose your general contractor.Why? Well, did you know 80% of architectural plans are never built? Why?
An architect focuses on what a home will look like, the design. The problem is, they rarely factor in the costs. So what you end up with is a design that can quickly become very expensive to build. Think about it architects are trained to be visionaries. They live to create the perfect home. That’s what you pay them for. But, they are not always focused on the practicalities of building and how much extra time and money certain design elements may take. And the reality is, they get paid for the design they create whether you build it or not.
There is a way to fuse vision with the practicalities of building. With a few small modifications, you can often achieve the same design result for a lot less money. When your general contractor and architect work together, you get the best of both worlds, a design that is beautiful and functional, and a design that is affordable to build. So it’s best to choose a builder first. Choose Trust Company and we have every piece of the puzzle to build your dream home.
