Advantages and Disadvantages of Building a Home

Moving into your own home is an exciting time, whether you purchase a pre-built one or decide to build your own. There are several advantages and disadvantages to building a home instead of buying one ready to live in.

Advantages

  • When you build, you get more say about the design of the floor plan and can usually add or change certain features without it costing much – or anything. For instance, you could add a laundry chute from a bathroom to the laundry to save a lot of work and heavy carrying.
  • You get to choose the materials the home is build with inside and out. The colour scheme is your choice and so are the light fittings and window treatments.
