Building Your Own Home From Start To Finish

The housing market is a mess right now. It’s filled with properties that people buying homes can’t afford. If you’re looking for your dream home, it probably isn’t on the market. If it is, it’s most likely not in your price range. Even buying with a loan won’t get most people the home that they want or imagined. That’s why many people are instead looking into building their home. Building your home is perhaps easier than you imagined. It used to be a possibility that was only available to the rich but now everyone can afford it. There are plenty of businesses offering this possibility, but we’re getting ahead of ourselves. On this post, you’ll find a complete guide to building your own home.

Plan What You Want
The first thing that you should do is plan what you want your new home to be like. You should think about how many rooms you want and what unique features you would like built in. Perhaps you would like a swimming pool in your backyard? If you bought a home you would probably be looking at paying well over a million for this possibility. But, since you are building your home, it can be fitted into a budget that is far more reasonable. Think about everything you want in your new home and forget about price for now. We’ll worry about that later.

Design A Budget
You then need to think about the absolute maximum you’ll be willing to spend on this new home. That might include a potential loan that you could take out. Remember, you don’t have to pay for the home right from your own pocket. Similar to buying a new home, you can borrow some of the funds. This is typically the only way most people can afford to build a brand new property. Write down a number that you are comfortable with and work with that. Again, it might be amended at a late stage, but you don’t have to worry right now.

Find A Builder
Your next step to take is to find a builder to create your home for you. You should be looking for a company who will take the job on from start to finish. Don’t settle for a company that will complete half the job for you and expect you to sort out the rest. When a home has been built it should be ready to live in without any extra work from you. That’s the job that you’ll be paying them for. Be careful when you hire a builder because you need a team that you can trust. It’s important that you don’t make the mistake of falling for the promises of a scam company. We recommend you look into Roe Builders. They are a great company that could provide everything you’re looking for.

Buying Land
Once you’ve arranged a building team, they will work with you on a budget you’ve chosen. They’ll tell you what you can and can’t afford based on your budget, and they shouldn’t pull any punches. After that, it’s time to buy the land. You need to choose a place to build your home. We recommend you buy land in an area where there is already development. That way your new home can be part of a new planned community.

When you walk through the door of your finished home, we guarantee you’ll be walking into the house of your dreams.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
