Our first two tips from Mr. Hillert covered liquidity and where to build a custom home. Below, we finish our coverage of his advice.
3. Spend lots of time with your architect. An extra $5,000 spent on designing every detail of your home, from the hinges to the cabinet knobs, can save a great deal of time and money later on in the process.
4. Be flexible. During the build, you may have to make decisions quickly. Be sure that you and your spouse work out a framework for decision-making ahead of time, so that nobody gets caught by surprise if the construction process takes an unexpected turn.
