If a new custom home is in your future, consider doing at least the preliminary designs yourself. Of course you have no doubt already looked at countless home designs in magazines, but none fit your bill – exactly.With today’s technology, computer drawing software has been made extremely user friendly. There are a number of design software options available that the complete novice can quickly manage. And many of these programs are powerful enough for professional designers as well.Simple and professional. What could be better for your own do-it-yourself custom home design software? Now you can take the best ideas of all of those plans that you have been browsing over and try to incorporate them into your special home.Many of these software programs offer simple “drag-and-drop” features. This speeds up the design process considerably and allows you more time to do the more important design tasks like bathroom designs and kitchen designs and closet designs…..Now designers, architects and builders will do this work for – FOR A PRICE. But it may take a few generations of drawings to get to your desired home design. And we all know that time is money!You will gain a great deal of insight into your home when you design it yourself. You will look at space requirements and flows that you may otherwise disregard if designed by someone else. And some of the small but important spaces – closet, linen storage, laundry, even kitchen cupboard spaces – will get the extra attention that you deem is required.Having this kind of input into your special new home design will be exciting and self-satisfying as well. Imagine having you friends over raving about a particular design feature and being able to say “That was MY design idea”.Now you will likely still have to engage someone to produce the construction set of drawings, but the design is still YOURS. And you will truly end up with a custom home designed especially for you.
