Building a Custom Home? Share Ideas With Friends and Family

Building a custom home used to be a very serious process that was done behind closed doors. You’d painstakingly pick out all the design choices in solitude, hoping that you made the right choice. Should I go with maple or oak? Should I do a Jack and Jill bathroom, or is that too Brady Brunch? Should I choose granite or butcher block for the countertop? The choices can be maddening! In the old days, it wasn’t until months later when you could finally let the world see your new home– but what if you’d like input now?

Here at Wayne Homes, we think it’s a great idea to get everyone in on the action. For example, if you’re stuck between two different types of cabinets, and don’t know which one to choose, set up a poll on Facebook with images of the two options. Then, your friends and family can vote on their favorite choice. Think of the fun it will be to reveal the final choice at your house warming!

If you’re set on your design choices, you can still make building your custom home a social event. Many of our customers have even started blogs to keep their friends and family up to date on the process of building their home. Take a look at these three awesome blogs from our Wayne Homes’ customers:

As you can see from these examples, a blog is a great communication tool. Sometimes, it’s hard to describe a floor plan in words. That’s when having a blog comes in handy, because you can share pictures of your home, from floor plan to conclusion, all in one location.

Alternatively, you can also share your images on Twitter and Instagram. Be sure to add the hashtag #waynehomes so that we can all cheer you on!

If you’re still in the planning phase, grab some inspirational photos from our Flickr page. You can pin these images onto your own custom home design idea Pinterest board. Pinterest and home design are made for each other! Name your new Pinterest board, “My New Wayne Home,” and be sure to share the link with your friends and family. You can also invite them to join and pin images that they think you’ll like onto your new board.

As your custom home builder, we want you to have fun building your dream home, and.The best way to do that is with the encouragement and support of your friends and family. 

So why wait? Even if you’re not ready to begin building your custom home, you can still start planning. Visit our 3,000 photo-rich Flickr page and start tweeting, pinning, and posting your way to your dream home today!
