When Should You Start the Design Process?

The journey toward building your custom mountain style home can span years. During that time, a lot of things can change, including: your needs, the economy and the building industry. For those reasons, the design process can't really begin until your are about one year from when you want to start construction. That doesn't mean there isn't work to be done. Find out what you should be doing in the years before you start the design process.
