There’s something fun about the thought of building a house from the ground up. For many, there’s also something daunting and scary about the thought. When it comes to a home, many people choose to buy an existing home rather than build new. Reasons for this could include lot availability, locations, lower costs, less hassle, and less “unknowns”.

While all of those reasons may make sense in some circumstances, there are other times when building new makes more sense.
