My husband and I wanted to add an addition to our home for years before we finally decided to act on the idea. However, we then realized that we desperately needed to update our kitchen, as well. Before we started the remodeling process, we prepared for what we expected: stress. We made sure we cleared our calendars and didn't have any other major commitments during the remodeling process. However, once we began planning the renovations, we quickly learned that we were actually having a lot of fun! The renovation process also went very smoothly and, now that the process is over, we both joke around that it feels "too quiet" in hear without the company of the contractors. I enjoyed t all so much I decided to start a blog to share my remodeling tips to help others who will soon be taking the plunge!
If you have always dreamed of having lots of land to raise your kids on, then you may want to build a home in a rural part of the country. If you have recently purchased some land in a rural area and want to build on it, you may not know where to start. This article will list three primary things you need to have in place before you can really get going on your home-building project.
You aren't going to be able to function or even build a house without having some water on your land. The first thing you should do is have a water line installed so that your contractors can access water for a variety of house projects, like mixing cement, painting, laying tile, and doing any other work that requires some water. Plus, the sooner you have your water line installed, the sooner you can get things rolling.
If you are going to be building a house, you are going to need to have a gas line installed by a gas line installation company. If you decide to have gas appliances, like a gas furnace, gas stove, gas dryer, or whatever else, having a gas line is essential for many parts of your home. And, on average, a gas line installation costs only about $200-$500, which makes it a relatively affordable expense.
If you moved from a city, then you may only know of one plumbing option that you have, which is a public sewer system. A public sewer system is one cohesive system with pipes that are connected to it. However, people who live in a rural area often rely on a septic system, which is essentially your own plumbing system under your ground. The size of the septic tank you will need for your new house will depend on a variety of factors, including your family size, how many bathrooms you have, and how big of a house you have overall. The average cost of a septic system is about $5500, which may seem like a lot up front but is actually quite reasonable in the long run.
Building a new house in the middle of nowhere is a great adventure, but it does require some additional work on your part. The sooner that you get these things installed and in order, the closer you are to starting on the home of your dreams. To learn more about these services, contact your county officials.
