Are you thinking of ordering a custom house from a home builder? You want a house personalized to your needs and wants. However, you still want a good deal. In this video, you will learn how to save money on your custom home.
One of the biggest ways to save money is to decrease your square footage. You can have the same house, but in slightly smaller dimensions. All the features can still be there, they will just be more compact and space efficient. Sometimes, a house will be designed at the original scale before being sliced down to the smaller scale. This is known as strategic slicing. It can save hundreds of thousands of dollars.
The other way to save some cash is with your cabinetry. Often, people specify more cabinets than they actually need. All the parts and assembly of these cabinets can quickly add up. Plus, it can be expensive to have all those cabinets painted. Instead, only request cabinets that you will actually need. Further, avoid cabinets along hallways as they just take up more space and don’t necessarily provide much benefit.
