Five Decisions to Make Before Finalizing Your Floor Plans

If you are thinking of building a custom home, you have to have several items clear in your head and on paper before you begin. You may have an idea of what your home should look like, but there are things that must be carefully defined early in the process. Let’s review five decisions you need to make before you finalize your floor plan:

Your Budget

You must have a very clear idea of how much you can afford to spend for your home. A new home contains a lot of potentially hidden costs if you haven’t built before, and it’s easy to get in over your head. Along with your budget decisions, consider Nutter Custom Construction for your management consultants. We can handle all the construction-related decisions to help bring your home project to life.

Your Contractor

Your choice of contractor is key to getting the home you desire. You need a reputable advocate who understands how to translate your dreams into the home you want. Nutter Custom Construction is building high-end residential construction in greater Sarasota with a team having over 30 years of combined experience. But we don’t want to speak for ourselves; read our customer testimonials.

Home Size

When planning the layout of your home, don’t just consider the present but look to the future. If you are younger buyers are you planning to start or expand your family? Is there a possible need for parents to live with you in the future? Do you have guests stay with you regularly? All these possibilities should be considered when planning a home’s design.


This is where you can let your imagination soar within the constraints of your budget. Nutter Custom Construction has showcase homes you can choose from, or you can work with us to design a custom home to your specifications. You can also decide what upgrades you wish such as a custom kitchen, bath, or outdoor features such as hot tubs or pools.

Custom Touches

Finally, think about custom touches that will make your home unique and perfectly fitted to your tastes and lifestyle. If you love to cook outdoors, perhaps an outdoor kitchen would suit you. If you have a water view, we can help you design the right windows to take best advantage of the view. Nutter Custom Construction will also help you utilize the size and shape of your home lot to show off your home and make the best use of the space.

If you are ready to build your dream home, we welcome you to consider Nutter Custom Construction and contact us at 941-924-1868 for a home design consultation.
