Building one's dream home starts with a plan, design, and budget.  Finding the right home builder to pull off the project is who another matter.  It's important to get multiple quotes from different home builders near you before signing anything.  Talk with local governments over zoning and other programs including possible rebates.  Always be sure to have the proper permits and insurance before starting any work.

Many folks work with planned developments so they are limited in certain styles or floorplan configurations, but custom home builders are able to produce home's from scratch with unique designs and elements that are envisioned by a professional architect.  An experienced home builder will be able to provide many details about the project and keep you informed throughout the process.
