You’ve decided to build your first house – congratulations! You’re excited and can’t wait to move in. The only problem is they’re just breaking ground, and you’re already getting impatient! Exactly how long does it take to build a house?
The time it takes to build your dream home can vary depending on size, location, complexity, and weather. An average size custom home can range anywhere from 10 – 16 months assuming everything goes as planned.
Here are some of the main things that can delay or speed up your home build:
- One of the most significant factors that can delay the building process is you! There are many decisions you will need to make throughout the build, and if you’re unsure, change your mind often or don’t respond the build time will be extended.
- Living in Minnesota, weather plays a massive role in a build timeline. It is no secret that the weather can change at the snap of a finger, which can cause delays in the process.
- Another step that people may not think of is the process of designing the house and getting official approval to build. This process can take a few months. When you’re planning your home, it is essential to think about a design that will work for you for many years.
