Selecting a Custom Home Builder That is Right For You

The Cottage at Blackhawk Drive Custom Home

You’ve made the decision: you are ready to build a new home, a custom home. Perhaps you’ve decided you want to move onto a lake, perhaps a prime piece of land along a river or in the country.  Location aside, the experience of designing and building your new dwelling should be a positive one. You should enjoy the process and have a relationship with your builder that includes trust, support and honesty. Selecting a custom home builder that is right for you is one of the most important decisions you’ll make when creating your custom home.


So how do you find that builder and what questions should you ask?
