Flexibility is a very important trait when it comes to a custom home building project. You have to be flexible, your designer or the architect, and your custom home builder have to be flexible. As the owner of the home, you need to make sure that you check in on the progress of the project as frequently as possible. You shouldn’t give an impression that you are not paying proper attention to the project.
If it is possible, you need to go to the construction site every single day. If you cannot go yourself, you can ask one of your family members to visit the site. If none of your family members are willing to go or have the time to go, then you can appoint a paid supervisor to oversee the project. The supervisor must be someone whom you trust and he should have good experience.
It is very important to take notes every time you talk to the builder, supervisor or the architect about the custom home. It is not a bad idea to maintain a diary to track the progress of the custom home project. There are many online diaries and mobile apps to help you do this.
