Building a house is a huge project but it is definitely a rewarding one. Here are ten things that can help the project go smoother. The first thing is to use the builder’s schedule as a guideline. Consider your future when you design the house. Are you going to have kids there? Have lots of storage in the design, you can’t have enough storage. Wait until the house is finished before you move in. Don’t try to move in the almost completed house.  Always research your contractors. Invest more money in quality fixtures and use neutral colors in the design. Colors can always be changed. You will always spend money out of your own pocket, it can’t be helped. Even though building a house can be very demanding, it is very rewarding.
