Rancho Santa Fe - Ranch Custom Home

Whether building a new custom home, or remodeling an existing home, everyone wants to make their home special. However, for many owners building a custom home or starting a remodeling project can be overwhelming. Where do you start? Are there budget considerations? What about the style, design, and plans? Is the property in the right neighborhood or location to make changes that will increase its value? Are there community or homeowner association restrictions that may impact the design or plans?

Others wonder if there is a professional that they can trust who will take full responsibility for the entire project? Should you form a team? Which professionals do you need, and how do you select them?
