Reasons to Track Your Selections

Tracking your material selections is crucial when building a custom home for several reasons:


Stay within budget: One of the most important reasons to track your material selections is to ensure that you stay within your budget. Building a custom home can be a costly process, and it’s easy to overspend on materials without realizing it. By keeping track of your selections, you can compare costs and make informed decisions that align with your budget.


Ensure consistency: Tracking your material selections can help ensure that you maintain consistency throughout your home. For example, if you choose a specific type of flooring for your living room, you may want to use the same flooring in other rooms to create a cohesive look. By tracking your selections, you can easily refer back to what you’ve chosen and make sure that everything works together.


Avoid mistakes: Building a custom home involves making countless decisions about materials, finishes, and design elements. It’s easy to forget what you’ve chosen or make mistakes along the way. By tracking your selections, you can catch errors before they become costly or difficult to fix.


Keep records for future reference: Finally, tracking your material selections provides a record that you can refer to in the future. If you decide to remodel or make changes to your home down the line, you’ll have a record of what you’ve chosen that can help guide your decisions.
