If you’re considering building a house in Minnesota, you might wonder how to transform your dream design into a successful, custom home build. That’s where our team comes in! We’ll help you understand the basics of what things to consider when building a house and then show you how we work to create a custom solution that’s tailored to fit your wants, needs, and location. 

Basics of Building a House in MN

  • Consider the Time of Year: Most people leave home construction to the warmer months of the year, especially if you’re considering building a home in MN. But the winter does provide some pros in terms of price for labor and contractor availability. October through February is traditionally a slower time of year for the home building industry. 

At ADŌR Homes, we’ll meet with you to discuss what time of year is the best option for your home build. We’ll look at your location, materials and labor needed, what building permits and requirements are required. Afterward, we’ll create a custom plan for you that works in your schedule and ensures your home build is a complete success, from start to finish. 

  • Consider Your Budget: In recent years, the cost of building a house in MN has increased, resulting from higher fees in land purchases, sustainable materials, and quality labor, not to mention more complicated local, state, and federal requirements each year that could potentially halt production if compliance is not met. Therefore, you’ll need to consider how much you’re willing to spend on a new, luxury home and be honest about that number. 

By partnering with ADŌR Homes, you’ll enjoy working with one point of contact to help you navigate through all the complexities and unexpected price variances of building a custom home. You can trust us to manage every detail while keeping your build on schedule and your budget in check by troubleshooting any challenges that may arise.

  • Consider Your Must-Have Home Features: This is one of the more exciting things to consider when building a house. Are you planning to build a lavish master bedroom with an ensuite bath and spa area? Looking to build a bigger kitchen with stainless steel appliances for friends and family to gather? There are many popular custom home feature trends in 2020 that you’ll want to take time to explore and visualize for your own dream home.

As part of your initial discovery process, our team at ADŌR Homes will work with you to understand your wants and needs. The next step will be the design and development process, where our team will help you hone in on the overall design of your dream home using hand-drawn sketches and conceptual schematic design (SD’s), as well as architectural construction documents (CD’s) to help us construct your home and budget out its build. During these earlier phases of the project, you’ll have many exciting choices to enhance your home build, and our team will guide you through this journey, so you’re always getting the best investment.
