Once you have the home building guide here are my recommendations…
I recommend printing out the home building guide and placing it in a three ring binder with pockets on both sides. What will end up happening is you’ll start collecting ideas from varying resources on floor plans, photos of homes, decorating ideas, building materials, etc., and this will give you a good place to keep everything organized and in one place. Plus, you’ll be able to carry the home building guide with you out in the field and write notes as you start exploring possibilities.
Once you have the home building guide printed out, find a comfortable place to relax so you can focus on the material. Highlight the information as it suits you, and makes notes at the space provided at the bottom of each page. Write down any questions you might have so you’ll remember to ask them.
NOTE: The information presented in the home building guide may not happen in the exact same sequence when you actually go to buy or build a home. Some steps may happen earlier, later or may happen simultaneously. Also, some steps may or may not be pertinent to you, and additional steps might be required that are not covered in this home building guide depending on what type of new home you’re interested in.
