team-caliex-gumbs“Getting started” in the custom-home-building game requires nothing more than answering a few basic questions.

  • Where do you want to live?
  • What do you want to build?
  • Can you build what you want to build, where you want to live?
  • How much do you want to spend?
  • How do you build it?
  • Where will you get the money to pay for it?

All of these questions involve issues that are interwoven with each other, which means that each of the answers will influence how the others are answered. One obvious example is the project’s budget, which will directly impact the home’s location and size, as well as the type of materials and level of finishes used. A more subtle example involves the interplay between lot acquisition, house design and feasibility, where supplying each separate answer necessarily involves being thoroughly conversant in all three areas.

The bottom line is: the more educated you become regarding all of these issues, the more prepared you will be to effectively answer each of these required questions. Castlewood’s diverse collection of in-house talent can help you do this, with as much or as little guidance as you need, when you need it.
