Every new home starts with a dream. It’s an idea of a living space that’s made just for you. A home that reflects who you are and how you live.
The vast majority of homeowners dream of building their own home, but instead go the resale route. Up until the creation of myHouseby, that was the easier solution. With hundreds of customizable home plans to fit unique lifestyles, modern homebuyers trust myHouseby to help them discover the right home, in the right location at the right budget, all within one single marketplace.
But it’s hard to make your dream a reality when you’re starting with someone else’s vision.
Bringing the Big Picture in Your Mind Into Reality
When you make the decision to build a new home, let your imagination run wild. After all, the possibilities are virtually endless when you’re starting from scratch.
The dream phase is one of the truly fun parts of the home building process. It’s your opportunity to think about the big picture and not only what you need in a home but what you’ve been looking for that you haven’t been able to find. That’s because it hasn’t been built yet.
People take different approaches to the dream phase. Some like to jot their ideas down in a stream of consciousness, primarily noting the must-have essentials. Others like to draw up what their house would look like from the street. Then there are the Pinterest board enthusiasts that collect images of homes that peak their interest.
There’s no right or wrong way to dream up your dream home.
What’s important is that you begin to build a clear picture in your mind of what that home looks like and how it will suit your lifestyle.
Putting Your Mind, Heart and Soul Into a Home
As you dream up your new home you’re probably feeling the first emotion of building – excitement. There’s no denying it’s an emotional process. Over the course of the build you’ll feel every emotion in the book from apprehension to elation to a huge sense of accomplishment. Fortunately, myHouseby takes the frustration out of the process so you can experience more enjoyment.
Many elements go into the emotional process of building a home. It’s a huge investment, which will certainly drum up emotions. The architecture itself has an emotional impact, but when it’s your home there’s a deeper connection.
Your home is a huge piece of your identity. It’s an extension of ourselves and our life. It’s your comfort zone where you can truly be yourself. It’s where unforgettable memories are made with family and friends.
We impact the places where we live and they affect us in return. Building a home takes that concept to a whole new level.
Put simply, home is the one place where we can feel like we belong, which is why it’s so important to us. Building a home may feel like you’re on a rollercoaster of emotions at times, but at the end of the ride you’re exactly where you need to be.
