6 Things You Didn't Know You Could Do While Your House is Being Built

When you're building a house, it can feel like you've been trapped in the house-building process. But there are many things you can do while your new home is under construction.

Here are 10 things you may not have considered:

1. Plan your landscape

One of the most important things you can do while your house is being built is planning your landscape. You'll want to think about what kind of landscaping you want, how much time you have, and what kind of budget you have for it.

2. Decide what kind of flooring you will use

Another critical decision during this time is deciding what kind of flooring you are going to use in your new home. There are many options out there that are safe for infants and children, so don't feel like you have to rush into getting carpet or vinyl flooring.



3. Get quotes on appliances and fixtures

If you're building a home with an open concept kitchen or living area (or if it just opens up onto another room), then it's essential to get quotes on appliances and fixtures before they're installed so that they all match each other as closely as possible. This will also help reduce costs by allowing you to find deals on appliances when they're on sale!


4. Choose Your Interior Style

You may not think that interior design is something that needs to be done before construction begins, but it does. Choosing the right color scheme, furniture style and layout for your home can help ensure that the end result will be exactly what you want.


5. Choose paint colors.

You might be tempted to wait until after construction to decide on paint colors, but that can be a mistake. The builder will usually have some paint samples available for viewing at the model homes and sales center. If you don't like those choices or want something different, ask the builder if they would be willing to provide samples from one of their preferred vendors in your color palette choice.



6. Shop for furniture, appliances, and window coverings

 This is a great time to start thinking about what you want in your new home, including where you'd like to place furniture, what style of cabinets and countertops will work best for your family and how large windows should be based on where they'll be located within the home.
