List of design/materials decisions to make when building a house

7 years ago

Has anyone come across a tidy list (or made your own?) of decisions to be made when building a house? I'm not thinking about floor plan considerations, but the finer details. Just a few examples of what I'm looking for...

  • Driveway material, dimensions, shape
  • Garage door windows/styles/color
  • Entry door
  • Entry door hardware
  • Base and case trim species, width, stain/paint color
  • Stair railing style/materials

Our architects had some general suggestions/ideas, but we're making a lot of the final decisions ourselves. Our foundation walls are being poured tomorrow (!!!) and we're wanting to make as many decisions as early as possible so we are never the cause for any construction delays.
