What to Expect When You’re Building
You've been saving pins on Pinterest and getting inspiration from Instagram for years, but what does the new build process look like when it comes to delivering a beautiful, cohesive home?
If you are anything like us, you might have ideas and pictures pulling from different design styles. An essential first step is to figure out which style is yours. Which one is most comfortable for you? Which one represents the way you want to live? Which one can you picture your family in making a life together? Our Central Texas Architectural design styles are Farmhouse, Traditional, Modern, Hill Country, Minimalistic, and Coastal.
Once you have your overall vision and style decided, it's time to begin narrowing your focus to design elements – interior and exterior. You want to concentrate on materials that will highlight and accentuate your style, not distract from it. For example, tumbled limestone and rustic wood timber are common in Hill Country homes. You want to incorporate these thoughtfully selected materials to stay true to your style.
By keeping a common design theme starting with your floor plan and continuing to final touches and furnishings, you can achieve the feeling of balance and beauty in your new home. Below is an outline of the typical sequence of events when building a new home, which will prioritize the material selections and provide you with insight into the overall new build process flow.
