If you have the opportunity to design and build your own home, you have the freedom to compile the features you desire and join them together into the perfect house. As you work together with a builder or architect, you may find that some details need to be cut from your plan to stay within budget. Even if you’re unable to complete everything immediately, it is wise to lay the groundwork for future improvements. Here are two major features you should plan for during the building process.  

Finished Basement

You may not be able to finish your basement as a game room or den right away. If your builder knows how you plan to use the space in the future, they can build in components that will make that transition easier to work through. If you are planning a walk-out basement, build the framing for an exterior door. If you plan to add a washing machine, utility sink or bathroom to your basement, running electricity and plumbing during initial construction can get you set up for success.

Solar Panels

Installing solar panels will help you save on home utility costs over time, but the initial purchase can be a considerable expense. If you know you will add solar paneling to your home at some point, prepare for it by running electrical in your attic and roofing now. Invest in a solid roof structure so you can manage minimal upkeep and keep your roof in shape for adding in the panels when you’re ready. 

If you can’t afford some of the home features you desire during your initial build don’t just forget about them completely. Always speak to your builder about what you want and get their advice on cost-saving measures you can take now to set yourself up for augmenting your home after the build is complete.
