Reno NV HomesThe path to planning your dream Reno custom home is usually filled with twists and turns, and unexpected elements always come up. You’ve of course been thinking about what you want, but before you start the process you’ll want to have ranked your top criteria to make the process go as smoothly as possible.

Sometimes when dreaming gives way to reality it’s important to be realistic with your home. While we don’t want you to stop dreaming about your perfect home it’s important to take into account your lifestyle. This blog will offer some help determining what’s vital for your Reno custom home.

Create Your Dream Lifestyle Home

Think to yourself what is your dream home? Maybe it’s the perfect location or a certain layout that you’ve always loved. As you plan, however, it’s important to differentiate what you want and what you need. This is also a good time to narrow down your budget. Think of your current home and what it offers. What is essential in your home and what is just an added perk?

As you progress with the planning process you will start to be able to prioritize your wants and needs. Also, be open to change and different ideas. If your criteria are too rigid it will be more difficult and take substantially longer. Our professional Northern Nevada custom home builders here at Lifestyle Homes NV are here to help you develop or refine your ideas.


This can be one of the most difficult parts when it comes to planning out the design of your custom home, and knowing your wants and needs comes in to play here. Try to determine what you can compromise for. Would it be size or location? The number of bedrooms or a basement? A pool or a lot? While you don’t know exactly what you’ll need to compromise it’s helpful to know what you’re willing to give up for another thing.

Future Planning

You’ll also want to think about what your life will look like in a few years. Try to imagine living in your house. Is it practical? Does it fit your lifestyle? Do they have a good school system? These are very real things that can determine the practicality of your Reno custom home.
