As exciting as it is to build your very first custom home for you and your family, it can also be a rather stressful time. Amidst the hustle and bustle, it’s easy to not consider some of the most important parts of the design and planning process. Our custom home builders West Vancouver are there to guide you along the way, and make sure you come out the other side with the home of your dreams.

Let’s take a look at things you and the Archia team will consider together when getting started not he project.

Bedroom Location

Getting a good nights sleep goes hand in hand with a well-located bedroom. Place it on the side of the home that faces the road and you can forget about getting a restful sleep. Place it above the garage and get woken up by someone coming home late or leaving the house early. It’s also important to keep it far away from the family living area or kitchen where chatter and the clinking of pots and pans can disturb your sleep.

Storage Space

Storage space is important, but it’s even more important to carefully place it with intention, in areas of the home where you need it most. For example, taking room away from the bathroom by installing tons of storage will only make you feel cramped, but installing ceiling-high cabinets in the kitchen is ideal, in which case rare-use items can be stored up top.

A Good HVAC System

You may not be thinking about it in the early stages of development, but a good HVAC system will determine how comfortable you are during summers and winters inside your home. Install a small system and you’ll be unable to heat or cool your entire house. Install one that’s too large and out of property, and watch your bills skyrocket. Your Archia custom home builders West Vancouver will speak to you about the best options in accordance with the size and layout of your home.

Pet-Friendly Area

You may not think of this at first, but a pet-friendly area can be a great option. If you’ve got a lot of pets, a comfortable room with all of their toys and beds with an easy way to go inside and exit can be fantastic for them at night time. We can also create an easy place for them to get bathed in the garage before walking inside the house and trekking in dirt, or install a high-power exhaust fan for the room with the litter box.

There are so many things that can oftentimes be overlooked when starting from scratch and building a custom home. Our custom home builders West Vancouver can’t wait to work with you on your project and present your innovative ideas that will improve the way you experience your home.
