Buying a Lot
First of all, obviously, you will need to purchase a lot for your home to be built on. How much this costs depends on the market in your area, the size of the lot that you choose, how desirable the location is, whether or not work needs to be done to prepare the home for building, and more.
Paying for Architects and Engineers
You will probably want to work with an architect who can talk to you about the design that you want for your home and who can draw it out for you. Then, you may want to have your building plans looked over by an engineer to be sure that the plans will work and that the home will be safe.
Paying the General Contractor
Naturally, you're probably going to want to have someone who you can work with directly who is knowledgeable about custom home building and who can help with managing the various aspects of the project, such as a general contractor.
Covering the Cost of Building Materials
Of course, a variety of building materials are going to be needed to construct your home from the ground up. The cost of wood, screws, flooring, roofing, and so much more will be included in the cost of building your custom home. One of the joys of having a home custom built is the fact that you can choose the materials that you want to have used, so you can choose what you want to have used based on look and price.
Paying for Permits and Inspections
Permits will need to be pulled during the construction process, and various inspections will have to be performed. Permit filing fees, inspection fees, and other similar costs are related to these permits and inspections.
Paying the Construction Workers
