Many people choose to construct a BOYL home in Charlotte because it gives them the most freedom and flexibility when it comes to home design. Not only can you orient the home in the optimal direction to take advantage of natural sunlight and views, you can design the home to perfectly accommodate your family and lifestyle.
When thinking of building your ideal home on your land in Charlotte, there are a few important factors to consider as you begin the design process:
The land may need to be cleared and graded, but if there are any mature trees or landscaping that you’d like to keep, they should be incorporated into your house plan. The direction you’d like your home to face may dictate how many windows you have, which bedroom is on which side of the house, or how large your front porch is.
Your Goals and Lifestyle
A beautiful home that works for one family may not work for another. Will this be your forever home? One to raise your children in? Or one to accommodate multiple generations? The answers to these questions will determine your style of home and the number of bedrooms, bathrooms, living spaces, and more.
