Using Social Media To Help Build Your Custom Home
Nearly everyone uses social media to stay connected to friends and family on a daily basis. Social media allows us to stay connected in peoples’ lives, share exciting news, or just share day-to day life events. Sharing with the people you care about keeps us linked. So why not share the exciting custom home building process with them? You can take your family and friends along for the exciting ride while also leaning on them for support.
Update Your Followers
Posting regular photos of your home as it’s being constructed can allow you to celebrate each milestone with your friends and family, even if they aren’t local. Use your social media to document the custom home building process. Your friends and family are certain to offer encouragement and share in your joy and excitement along the way.
Ask for Input
There are hundreds of decisions to be made when designing a custom home. Before construction is started you will have already picked out your floorplan and architectural style. But there are still dozens of more decisions you’ll need to make during the home building process. Decisions such as paint and wallpaper color, lighting design, flooring, cabinets, and even small things like light switch covers.
You have access to tons on inspiration online in places like Pinterest, but why not ask your nearest and dearest for their opinions and ideas?
You can post photos of unfinished rooms along with tile, cabinet, and paint color options. Stylish friends and family can give free advice that may be as good as hiring a professional designer. Get your friends and family involved in the process by tagging them in the posts where you are looking for guidance.
Building your custom dream home is a whirlwind journey and years from now it’ll seem like a blur. But if you take the time to post your experiences building a custom home, you’ll be able to revisit those memories. Posting on social media is both to keep your friends and family connected, and also to create a recorded album for yourself. During the custom home building process, you’ll hardly have time to appreciate the process. But with a digital record you’ll be able to relive the journey.
