The architectural design phase is the most important phase of a custom home construction project. It is the starter phase of the project. You will hire a good architect and start working on the design of the custom home. Some people make the mistake of not hiring the builder along with the architect. It is highly recommended to hire the custom home builder as well during the architectural design phase of the project.
The collaboration of the builder with the architect is very important. In fact, the builder should also work very closely and should be in sync with the interior designer as well. While the architect is designing the plan, the builder should also prepare the timeline and the schedule for the construction of the custom home based on the plan. The builder should also participate in the design process and provide inputs and ideas to the architect.
As the design is getting ready, the builder should also start working on the cost estimates and keep informing the client so that he can take a call. Such an approach keeps the whole project proceeding in a streamlined manner.
