As a free starting guide from BHS Contracting, here are some important issues to remember when planning your project -

  • Site Plans are usually required and necessary when planning your house, cabin or cottage

  • Have a vision of what you want, then draw up a building plan. Start with a rough sketch, then get a contractor, architect or draftsperson to help with the details

  • Check on legal planning with the City, State and County

  • Check on permits and cost of development fees

  • Have an Accurate Budget with breakdown of costs

  • Work on the Financial Planning for your loan and building costs

  • Have Detailed Construction Costs with a contingency fund built in

  • Be aware of Rural Issues - Septic, Well, Road, Weather, Access, Fire Prevention

  • Research types of Materials to Use - quality vs cost vs budget
