Well, being a designer as well as Realtor, building a flat roof would probably be
the most inexpensive, and also, are you going to do shingle roof or tile? And how much
of a pitch , if any for that roof..
Southwest Ranches may require you to build the home to a certain size due to the lot, but
you should contact the building department on that.
Also, keep in mind the more details in the home, then the more you will spend. Example,
Impact windows, they are more but however, you dont need to worry about the storms,
I'd say do that.
The other is marble or tile, and what marble you will do?
Pool or no pool? Pavers or concrete for the exterior, Interior doors,hallow core or you want solid wood?
How will your ceilings be , flat, coved, recessed?
Little details add up.. Kitchen will it be standard or do you want to
go for the chefs kitchen?
I would say once you have your drawings done by the architect, plan to send them out to 3-4 home builders for a proposal and make sure you know about any changes that will come up.
Been designing for a while and even had my home built.
Good Luck and if you have any questions or would like some advise contact me.
