With the “official” half-way point of summer (and of the year) now behind us, it’s time to start thinking ahead to the goals that you’d like to accomplish before the close of 2018. And, if one of those objectives is to turn your dream home into a reality, one of the primary factors in that process is the time of year that you choose to get started. That’s because there are a number of criteria that can influence the time it takes to complete a home building process, as well as what the cost of the project can be.
While Central Florida doesn’t typically have to contend with snow and ice, which could in turn delay your home-building time line, there are some other factors that are important for you to keep in mind.
For example, here in sunny Florida, hurricane season can play a big role in many types of new construction projects. In this part of the country, for instance, hurricanes are most prevalent between June 1st and November 30th, with the peak being late August and September.
Likewise, and probably not coincidentally, the month in which Florida sees the most rain is September. Saturated ground can make it more difficult to proceed with pouring the foundation – which can then lead to delays in other areas of the overall building process. With that in mind, narrowing down a time in the late fall or early winter to get started with the building of a new custom home in Florida could turn out to yield the best results.
If you’ve been considering building a custom home in the Orlando or surrounding Central Florida area, we can help you to determine the time frame, cost, and other key criteria, so that you can go on with confidence. So, give us a call today to learn more.
