Did you know that, in the recent edition of the The State of the Rockies Report Card, Gallatin county was named the best place there for small business creation and healthy living? Gallatin county includes Jackson, which has been a gateway for many tourists visiting national parks.

Nearby are the Yellowstone National Park, the Grand Teton National Park, and the national Elk Refuge. It is not surprising that many people are looking for homes in this region, and some are even looking to have a custom built home. If you are looking for custom home designers, what are some things you should keep in mind?

First, did you know that Jackson is located near a world renowned skiing resort? If you are planning on skiing often, then consider asking your custom home designers to incorporate this into the design. This is really a general rule about custom homes, since this is your chance to build your house to suit your family, rather than fitting your family around the constraints of your home.

Second, when you are looking for custom home builders, make sure to look at their portfolio of work. This can give you a really good idea of whether these are perhaps the right custom home designers for you. A great designer can be the wrong one for your house if, for example, they specialize in colonial architecture, when what you want is a modern home design. You do not want to be the experimental architecture piece for them, unless you are feeling very daring.

Third, make sure to also contact past clients in order to get a better idea of how on time and on budget your custom home designer is able to be. They might assure you the project can be done in six months, but talking to clients or even reading reviews online might make it clear that they tend to be two months behind schedule because of low staffing. Better to find out now, than have to live out of an expensive hotel for two months. Read this for more. Visit here for more.

    very interesting! I know you were writing about Jackson but it could honestly be true for a lot of places. So thanks for that, I will keep these in mind.

    Good point about building your house around the needs of your family. Custom building really does offer that unique chance, and people should take advantage of that. Heck, build a secret door and mini room behind a bookcase.
