Custom Home Builder Asheville, NC - Blue Ridge Homes Inc. -

Site Selection and Site Grading in Asheville, NC....

Before You Can Plan Your Build, You Must Know Your Site

As a licensed general contractor and custom home builder in Asheville we always tell our clients that you must begin planning from the dirt up. How many times have you seen a building lot in the mountains where the homeowner and the builder tried to force a building lot to fit the home? These lots can be seen around Asheville if you look. They consist of large stair-stepped cuts, maybe large retaining walls, the indicators are numerous.

The Lot and the House Plan Must Compliment One Another

Have the End Goal In Mind

The lot determines what your environment will be for the rest of the home's life. Do you want your home to exist in a wooded environment? Do you want your home to utilize passive solar? Do you want your home to have year round long range views? All of these are valid questions and there could be hundreds more. So, at Blue Ridge Homes we tell all our clients to take a sheet a paper and draw a line down the center and label one side, "Must Have" and, "Want".

Start filling in these columns and be honest with yourself and your budget. I know that most people would love to have a beautiful mountain view with a stream running through the backyard and a nice flat grassy area, but most can't afford to have everything. So, be honest!!! Once you have your sheet filled out take it with you everytime you go looking at a building lot in Asheville or the surrounding area.

By keeping your list with you it will help take some of the emotion out of the process. You want your selection in location to evoke strong emotion, but you do not want that emotion to drive you nuts. Using your list will help you stay grounded and focused on the end goal and the construction of your dream home.
