One of the advantages to building your home is the opportunity to design throughout the entire building process.
Once your house is framed, I recommend setting up a time to meet with your electrician for a walk-through. This lets you see how the house is progressing and re-evaluate where any electrical components are going to be places. During this phase of construction, homeowners can still make changes at a minimal cost.
Next, think about outside outlets. If you plan on celebrating the holidays by decorating the outside of your home, make sure you have enough outlets to support your holiday spirit. Or, if you spend your summers in the backyard, make sure there are outlets near your outdoor furniture.
Remember to give serious consideration to two and three way switches throughout your home. This adds convenience and a sense of security while you are in your home.
Next week we’ll delve into designing the perfect outdoor entertainment space.
