How Calling a Contractor Changed My Life

This might sound completely crazy, but the most important call I ever may was to a construction contractor. I can remember the day as if it were yesterday. I had decided to rebuild parts of my home. This involved removing part of the roof, knocking down a brick wall and removing some electrical wires and water pipes. I started out just fine but then I started to have problems. I realised I was in out of my depth and decided to call an expert. The contractor who came around was great and he quickly fixed up the mess I had made. Since that day, I have had a keen interested in construction contractors. I hope you like this blog.

Avoid These Mistakes When You Want to Build a New Home

Building a home is a great way to ensure you get all the features you want, and that the space works perfectly for you and your family. However, having a new home built is not always as easy as you might expect; note a few common mistakes you'll want to avoid when working with a designer or homebuilder, so you and your family are happy with the new house for as long as you own it.

Underutilized rooms

When having a home designed from scratch, you have the chance to include all the unique rooms you need; this can include a hobby room, gym, music room and so on. However, be careful of creating rooms that will be underutilized and used just once or twice in the year. Instead, consider rooms that might do double-duty. For example, a room for all your scrapbook supplies might also work as a home office and den, so it's always going to be used even when you get tired of creating scrapbooks. By avoiding underutilized rooms, you won't have any wasted space in your new home.


When choosing windows for your new home, consider how they will affect the home's interior and  your overall comfort. For example, very large windows in a family room can mean a glare on the television screen, or too much light and noise in the bedroom when you're trying to sleep. On the other hand, small windows in a home gym can make the space seem dark and dull and discourage you from using it, and lots of natural light in the kitchen can make the space seem cleaner and ready for food prep. Work with your home designer to plan the windows carefully so there's just enough light in every room of the home.

Oversized rooms

Large rooms that are not crowded with furniture can be very comfortable and inviting, and you may be looking forward to large living and dining rooms in your new home. However, designing rooms that are too large can also be a mistake, as your furniture may seem too spread out and inconvenient; as an example, if you need to walk across a large bedroom to reach the dresser, or cannot see the entertainment centre from the living room sofa. Leave enough room for your chosen furniture and comfortable foot traffic when designing a new home, but ensure that the rooms are also cosy and relaxing and not outright inconvenient because of their size.
