Choosing the Right Lot to Build On

01021b7b49f1f6ea6bc1eb116adfbb5a18226c5b1eAs a Design-Build Construction Company, one of  the many services we offer (and encourage clients to use) is assisting in the selection of the property for their Dream Home.  Maybe you’re looking in Georgetown for a lot that boasts beautiful Live Oaks draped in Spanish Moss with views out to the Winyah Bay or Waccamaw River; or maybe Pawleys Island for a quaint setting overlooking a Golf Course or Marsh or even the Atlantic Ocean, here’s a summarized list of questions to ask yourself as you get started finding your perfect site for your Custom Home.

Find your Desired Location: Do You Want to be on The South Strand? Grand Strand? Waterfront?

  • Your Lifestyle?  Beach, Shopping, Attractions, Destinations, Boating, Fishing
  • Neighborhood? Average Size Houses, Styles, Fees
  • Amenities? Pool, Golf, Beach Access, Memberships

What Kind of Monetary Investment Are You Comfortable With?

  • Is there an Area or Neighborhood Premium?
  • What are the Construction Costs related to the Property?
  • Fill, Clearing,  Permitting Cost, Impact Fees, Water and Sewer Fees?

Here’s where we really start to benefit our Clients in their Property Search, we can process some of the answers to the above questions and assist in the individual property selection, and help narrow several options down. The next equally important questions that we work together to answer are related to the Design and Construction of your Home.

What Considerations Should We Have For The Residence?

  • Size and Layout of the Home
  • House/Garage Orientation and Setbacks
  • View Points from the Interior and Exterior
  • Porches, Window and Door Placement
  • Garage Entry Placement (Courtyard, Side Load, Park Beneath, Detached, etc)
  • Height (Required Steps, Railings)
  • Trees and Vegetation to remain

These are just some of the Topics we cover when working with our Clients. We will always go out and view Properties in person for ourselves, to get ideas of the Topography, Trees, Lot Size, and Neighboring houses just to name a few. Like mentioned before, we are a Design Build Company where we handle and process all of this information, in-house, to look at the Project as a whole and meet the requirements of the Client. We are pleased to give input from our years of experience working with people in the Low Country, South Strand, and Grand Strand areas.
