The way we see it, there actually just two ways that you can do home building and design. It’s either you hire a professional architect or you do it yourself. But even if you do it yourself, you would still need to enlist the help of a professional architect to draw a workable design that a contractor can build on.

So, really, when it comes to the look of your home, it’s you who holds the vision and it’s the professionals who have the keys to making it a reality, unless of course, if you were an architect yourself, which we doubt you are.

Where can you find an architect? It’s simple. You just need to go to Google and type in the word “architect” plus the name of your local area. There you should be able to find the building designers and custom home builders that are operating where you live. The thing with architects is that they need to work with a contractor, so it’s either you hire a contractor that has an in-house architect or your hire a star architect and find a contractor who can build the design.There is no right or wrong way to go about it.
