Building Your Dream Luxury Home

Most people have thought about building their luxury dream home, but how many would know where to begin if they were given the opportunity to do so? The answer to that question, unsurprisingly, is very few.

Building a home, let alone the luxury dream home of one’s dreams, is far from a simple task because there are so many things to take into consideration, look into, and decide upon.

To give you a rough idea of what is involved, consider the following points.

The ‘Golden Triangle’

The ‘Golden Triangle’ – quality, price and time – is a concept used in many fields, most notably project management, and it is known as such because of its complexities which make it impossible to achieve.

This is something you need to understand when building your dream luxury home – it is impossible to build the highest quality home at the lowest possible price in the shortest amount of time.

When you recognise this, you are empowered to look at the project in an entirely different light and make better informed and more perceptive decisions.

Working with the right team

The build and design team(s) you work with is crucially important to the outcome of your project and it is therefore of critical importance that you source the right build and design team.

There are many things to look for in a build and design team, experience is one, price another. But there are many other equally important qualities to look for, like passion and the desire to have you feel as proud of the completed project as they are to have played a role in designing and building it.

The landscape on which you build

Whether or not you have bought a plot of land yet, you must still factor the landscape on which you will build. There is more involved, however, than how the house will be positioned on the plot and similar considerations, because a luxury home’s quality should be reflected in its immediate surroundings.

Landscaping, including gardens and fences, should be discussed with the design team, as should the suitability of the plot of land on which to build if a plot has not yet been purchased, or the suitability of your ideas for your home if you have already.

Think of the future and what it might hold

It is very easy to design a home for your life now, but what about your life five years from now? Something as simple as adding an extra bedroom can make a world of difference to the overall success of your project as you have to remember that your dream luxury home is not only about your total satisfaction in the present, but also for many years to come.

These are several of the many things you need to think about when building the luxury home of your dreams. There is plenty involved and the more informed you are about the process, the better the decisions you make will be.
