Who hasn’t daydreamed about what their custom-designed home would look like? Now you’ve finally made it and are about to make that dream a reality. It’s an incredibly exciting time, but you cannot afford to overlook some of the more mundane elements of custom home design. Remember – it’s about the big picture, not just those must-have features.

Is it open and easily accessible? How well designed is the family room? These nine tips from Truoba House Plans will help ensure that your custom home is an actual dream come true.
