Why Do I Need a Home Building Checklist?

Most people realize how much more productive and efficient it is to go to the grocery store with a shopping list, but they often neglect to make such lists in other parts of their life. While forgetting to buy milk can ruin tomorrow’s breakfast or require a return to the store, neglecting an essential part of your home building process can seriously delay the completion of your custom-built house or cost you thousands of dollars in additional expenses.

You don’t build a new house as often as you go to the grocery store, so it’s understandable that you may not be accustomed to the process of building custom quality new homes. It’s easy to overlook crucial details if you don’t have experience with building your own move-in-ready house. Fortunately, you don’t need to learn such important lessons the hard way.
