design your own dream homeTapping into the knowledge of stay-at-home parents is key to designing a house that is functional for your family. Because your home is your profession, you are the one who knows the best place for the laundry room, or how to make the living room inviting to your kids and their friends. That’s why, at HOW Building Services, we want to work alongside you to make your vision a reality, and to make your home work for you!

How can you begin planning the design of your home before starting the remodeling process? Here are some tips on what to think about if you want to design your own dream home.

Design Your Own Dream Home: Where to Begin?

Location, Location, Location!

Where you live makes an impact on what features you want in your house. Does it tend to rain or snow frequently? Then perhaps consider a mud room. Does it get cold enough for winter coats? Then a coat room off of the foyer will be perfect for when you entertain in the winter. Your location can have a huge impact on the needs of your family, and therefore the needs of your home!

Any Plans?

Consider the goals of you and your family. Do you and your spouse want more kids? Do you plan on working from home while being a stay-at-home mom? What are your kids’ interests, and how might they affect the space? All of these life possibilities can affect how your house will need to function, so it is worth thinking through future plans when designing your own dream house.

What’s REALLY Important?

You know better than anyone what your family actually needs. Yes, your kids may say they really want a game room, but those stacks of unused board games in the closet say something different. Or maybe your hubby says that he would grill more if you had a larger patio, but you are pretty certain that won’t be the case in the long run. Don’t be afraid to call it as you see it, and put work into designing a dream house that focuses on the important stuff.
