You can download our eBook here Â» You’ve finally made it to the best part of building a custom home—moving in! Once you’ve gotten settled in and started showing people around the beautiful home you’ve carefully designed, planned, and built, what sort of things can you start expecting in your home?
Building a custom home is a long process, filled with a lot of decisions and excitement—and sometimes, the little things that need to be done before you move into a new home can be overlooked. Whether it’s remembering to schedule a time with the moving company or activating your phone service, the professionals at Sekas Homes have compiled a list of some of the things you need to do approximately three weeks before your closing date.
âAging in placeâ refers to the ability to live in one home for the rest of one’s life—meaning you’ll never have to renovate or move to accommodate for your changing needs throughout your life. It’s often an alternative to living in a health care environment or nursing home. At Sekas Homes, we offer a number of features designed for people interested in aging in place, so you can enjoy your home for years to come.
Once drywall is hung, your house will really begin to take shape—but before you reach this stage, there are a few things you should check with your builder before drywall goes up, including things like room dimensions, outlet placements, and more. At Sekas Homes, we understand that you expect the best from your luxury custom home, and that’s why we have a thorough preâdrywall checklist for you to go over before the next stage of your home’s construction begins.
Your master bathroom should be a sanctuary—a place where you can decompress in a deep soaker tub, buried in bubbles, or get ready to face the day in the morning. At Sekas Homes, we have designed many beautiful and functional master bathrooms to suit a variety of tastes and styles, and we can create one for you, too. But first, take a look at some of our previous work and find some master bathroom ideas to inspire you.

Virtually any potential concern in your home will be infinitely easier to address and fix before construction begins. Which is why it’s incredibly important that you and the builder are completely on the same page before construction begins. That’s why, at Sekas Homes, we’ve created a basic pre-construction checklist for our homebuyers.
