Steps in Building a New Bay Area Home

Custom Home Construction Starts with a Solid Plan

As exciting as it is to design and construct your dream home, building a new home from the ground up is a complex project that requires a comprehensive construction plan. Finding suitable land and a trusted contractor is just the beginning of your new home construction journey. The experts at Flegel’s Construction share the key steps in building a new Bay Area home.

Top Considerations for a New Build in the Bay Area

  • Land and contractor selection: If you are considering a teardown to rebuild your luxury dream home, you may already be a few steps ahead in your new home construction journey. However, if you are looking for a piece of land in the high-demand Bay Area, it is no easy task. The processes around regulatory compliances, land development regulations, and building permits can be tedious and time consuming. Hiring a knowledgeable and competent custom home contractor is one of the most crucial steps in building a new home in the Bay Area.
  • Design considerations: Seeing your dream home come to life can be an extremely satisfying process, especially when every aspect of the home caters to your specific needs, lifestyle, and preferences. While going through the design and planning process with your new build contractors, it is important to consider:
  • Architectural styles: Selecting your preferred architectural style is a critical aspect of planning your new build. Whether it is Craftsman, Queen Anne, Monterey-Revival, Eichler-inspired Mid Century Modern, Contemporary or some other style, your custom home can be exactly what you want it to be.
  • Privacy elements and views: Plan for practical layouts and natural light-maximizing solutions, without compromising on views, safety or privacy. Think skylights, atriums, sunrooms, or indoor – outdoor living with glass walls, outdoor kitchens and so on.
  • Aesthetic elements: Finalizing the aesthetic elements for a long list of features and fixtures in your home interiors and exteriors is exciting. It involves making color choices, materials, finishes, décor themes and various other aspects.
  • Fixtures and amenities: Plan for lifestyle-friendly solutions that enhance your quality of living. Think about modern conveniences and smart, Wi-Fi-enabled homes where you can remotely control lighting, entry-exit points, and appliances.
