You're finally at a time in your life where you're able to design your dream house.
It's exciting and satisfying.
But it's all a process that needs to be done right.
When it comes to approaching design, it's important to not misunderstand what you want.
You have to be able to answer one simple question when it comes to your design.
Why do you want this design?
Listen to Sansa Stark.
Simply have the answer to why.
Harder than you thought right?
Believe it or not but the hardest part of design is yourself.
It's so easy to get caught up in the first pictures we see, but don't let a magazine convince you what your house should look like.
It's important to understand why do you like it. This is the place where your memories are made.
If you can't understand why you like this design, then maybe it's not for you.
It's so easy to want the only thing we know, but imagine the possibilities if you open yourself up to more.
The design of your house should represent your lifestyle.
It all comes back to why.
Once you have your why, the rest comes quick.
You need to have an estimated timeline and budget.
