Why You Shouldn’t Use An Architect To Design Your New Home

Design & Build New Home

Would you like to save thousands on your new home? Here’s a valuable design tip for you…


In fact, it sounds counterintuitive… But before you look for an architect for your new custom designed home, choose your builder first.


Well, did you know 80% of architectural plans never come to fruition?

You see, an architect focuses on what a home will look like. The design. The problem is, they rarely factor in the costs. So what you end up with is a design that can quickly become very expensive to build…

Think about it: architects are trained to be visionaries. They ‘live’ to create the ‘perfect house’. That’s what you pay them for. But, they are not always focussed on the practicalities of building – how much extra time and money certain design elements may take.

Practicality is the first thing your builder thinks of. They constantly question if and how they can do it for you.

And the reality is, architects get paid for the design they create, whether you end up using it or not.

There is a way to fuse vision with the practicalities of building. With a few small modifications, you can often achieve the same ‘design result’ for a lot less money.

When your builder and architect work together, you get the best of both worlds…

You get a design that is beautiful and functional and a design that is affordable for you to build.

So it’s best for you to choose a custom home builder first. Then find an architect. And get them to work together.

Better yet, most professional builders already have designers so they can work with you together on your new home.

Knowing the right information will help you identify these professional builders a lot quicker so you can avoid becoming another victim of the building industry.
