The impact of the Coronavirus is being felt across a wide range of industries – not just in the United States, but also around the globe. Due in large part to our worldwide economy, pandemics and other crises can result in a domino-like effect when it comes to coordinating and completing projects like the creation of new custom homes.
The good news is that if you’ve been considering turning the idea of your dream home into a reality, it can still be done – even in the midst of the current Coronavirus environment. That being said, though, there are some factors to consider in terms of the potential timeline and budget going forward.
For instance, given today’s strict social distancing requirements, fewer workers are allowed both inside and outside the home. This means that in many cases, plumbers, electricians, and masons will all need to “stagger” their duties, and in turn, depending on the size and expanse of the project, this could slow down the overall progress.
Likewise, transportation issues could result in a delay on various materials getting to the job site. This can be due to both the actual movement of the items from place to place, as well as ensuring that they are properly packaged.
There are, however, some strategies in place for getting the custom home project underway, as well as taking care of many of the financing requirements. Thanks in large part to online chats and other virtual solutions, meetings with designers, architects, and other professionals can still take place, without putting anyone at risk.
