When it comes to Kansas City custom homebuilders, Larson Building Company is at the head of the pack. Building stunning custom homes across Kansas City, they were recently featured in an article in KC At Home magazine featuring the top building tips from the industry pros. Below are some of the top insider tips mentioned in the article, straight from the source!
Tip #1: When building a new custom home, it is important to spend the time up front in making the correct planning strategy in selections and developing detailed specifications, before construction starts. This results in a smoother construction process, shorter construction timeline and adherence to the budget.
Tip #2: What distinguishes one custom builder from another today is the customer experience. More so than the price or quality, this is one of the most important things to be comfortable with when choosing the right custom builder for you.
Tip #3: Monitoring humidity levels in the air and raw materials as they are being installed is a critical element, according to Larson Building Company. Expansion and shrinkage will occur in sub-floor moldings and hardwoods as humidity changes. Having an adequate system in place and knowing how to adjust these conditions even after you move in, is important.
Tip #4: Be sure to treat the hardware in your home like you would a fine piece of jewelry. There is a world of difference between a plain cabinet door know versus an eye-catching knob that catches your guests notice and provides an elegant feel.
Tip #5: Building a custom home doesn’t have to mean building the most expensive home. A custom home simply means taking the time to think about the type of home you want to create and live in. You can create a beautiful space at any price point, and create the home you have always dreamed about.
