A custom built home is a dream comes true for most common people. Every family looks forward to having their own house which has been built to fit their lifestyle requirements. Every member of the family has his or her own needs and looks forward to having these needs met with a custom built home. Most people start off in life in rented places. This is a point in life where they do not have too much choice. Their choices are usually defined by financial constraints. This is why they always dream of having a home that is built exclusively for them. They have all kinds of expectations which come out of a lot of dreams. Unfortunately for these people, every one of their ideas may or may not be practical. They might have a lot of unreal expectations. One should also remember that what seems like a good idea right now may not always be so. Also one has to remember that every member of the family is going to use the entire house. Irrespective of their ages, the living room, the kitchen and the dining area are all going to be used by everyone in the family. Even the children’s bedrooms will not remain there bedrooms forever. Once they grow up and go away those rooms are just extra rooms that need training unnecessarily. A person designing the house needs to be careful attention to the family’s needs. The designer needs to incorporate as many of their dreams as possible into the house. It is also important that the designer needs to make the family understand that the house is going to last for at least a few decades. During this time the family is needing me either grow or shrink. This is why in earlier times; people use to get actual physical models of their homes made by architects. These models used to be very expensive to make but were needed to give the family a better idea of the finished home.
Physical models are expensive and no longer needed
- Luckily computers have made it much easier for people to be able to visualize a finished home even before starting construction.
- One can now view home in a 3d architectural view on a computer screen to get a better idea of what the finished home will look like.
In addition to taking a view or a tour of the house from the inside, one can also plan on how the interiors and furniture will look inside the house in different areas. This is a very important role that architectural renders play in designing the home. A family can begin not just planning on the house, but also on the furniture and other woodwork such as closets and shelves.
