If you are considering building a new home, there are several things you should do before you make this huge commitment. Listed below are 4 of the top ways to prepare to build your new home!
1. Learn the Home Building Process
The more you know about the home building process the more enjoyable the process is likely to be. Research potential construction schedules online and talk to people who have built homes before about how the home building process typically goes. On the Cypress Homes website we have a section that explains our build process, check it out here. By doing this you will have a better idea about how the construction process on a new home typically goes and a better idea of what to expect when building.
2. Find a House Plan to Suit Your Needs
Think about how many square feet you want your home to be and what rooms you would like in your home. After you figure out what rooms you may want and how large you want each room, research potential home plans. On the Cypress Homes website we have pictures and floor plans of many different homes we have built, check those out and see which one best suits you and your needs!

3. Check Out Home Building Books
Books are a great resource to use when building a new home. They can help you get ideas and information about almost anything in the home building process, from concrete, electrical, and building codes to decorating, landscaping, and painting. Go to your local book store and pick a few books out, check some out from the library, or order some online.
4. Learn About Loans and Mortgages
