Treasure Island Construction is there to support you throughout this process. Which is why we have created a list of our top custom home building tips to help you along the way!
Select The Ideal Location
You’ve heard it before and you will certainly hear it again: location, location, location. While you certainly can’t go wrong with any of the beautiful places in Roatan, there are certain areas that boast more amenities and conveniences than others. We recommend spending some time on the island before committing to a certain area. Once you’ve decided on a lot, we also recommend taking the time to see which areas get more wind, sun exposure, shade, etc. After all, you will want to make sure your home plays to the strengths of the land.
Choose an Experienced Team
It goes without saying, but selecting the appropriate team of experienced architects and builders is vital to achieving your dream luxury custom home. You know your ideal design better than anyone else, so you should have individuals on your team who can bring it to life. Ask plenty of questions and research portfolios of previous work to gain a sense of the work your architect and builder have done before.
Be Involved in the Floor Plan Process
Though your team of custom home building experts is a trustworthy crew, you’ll still want to be a part of the blueprint design process so you can achieve your desired floor plan. Your architect and builder will be able to provide wonderful insight into the layout of your home based on the space you have, but you ultimately have the final say in any decision. This is your opportunity to create the elegant beach home of your dreams, so being involved in the planning process is key to ensuring you get everything you want. But also remember to heed their advice – after all, this is their area of expertise!
