Top Tips for Planning Your New Home Build in the Beautiful Okanagan

Planning a new home build can seem like a daunting task, but it doesn’t have to be. Below are tips from the experts at Chriscan Construction to help make the process as smooth as possible.


Tip One: Hire a trusted professional

When choosing a contractor in the Okanagan make sure you do your research and are comfortable with your builder’s expertise. Ask for testimonials from previous clients, ask about experience, and look for trust providers like awards and associations.


Tip Two: Choose a building site you love

There are so many beautiful areas to build throughout the Okanagan. Whether you are planning to build in Kelowna, Lake Country, Penticton, Vernon, or anywhere in between, choose a piece of land in a neighborhood that you love. Consider factors like views, nearby parks, local amenities, and the general feel of the community.


Tip Three: Explore your home design likes and dislikes

Get to know your home design style. Are you a fan of craftsmen, contemporary, or modern? Have you considered finishes and fixtures that you would like worked into the design. Perhaps you have always dreamed of an infinity pool or a feature fireplace. Having an idea of key features that matter to you will be helpful during the design phase of your project.
