There aren’t many ways to look at this pandemic in a positive light, but we want to encourage you to take the extra time to be productive and proactive when it comes to figuring out how to plan for the future for you and your family.

Plan for Your Future Home

Building a new home can be an incredibly exciting experience. There’s a lot to think about and dream up when planning for a future home, so here are some ideas of things to plan that is sure to keep you busy!

Modern or Contemporary

With so many different directions that you can take on a new home project, it’s crucial that you understand what your style is. There are many differences between modern and contemporary but some of the lines are blurred and some styles infuse both to create a hybrid. Some of the differences between modern and contemporary have to do with the architecture, decor, colors, and materials. If you’re interested in learning more check out our post, modern vs contemporary homes.

Pro tip: don’t think about what style you’d like to have, sometimes that keeps you from truly finding what you love. Instead, look at what style of dishes, art, and home decor you enjoy. Is it modern or contemporary?

Location

You might love your current neighborhood or you might really be feeling the need to move. Maybe you’d like a nice piece of land or to live on the water. The great thing is, in Minnesota, you have options. Those who are looking to build homes in Minnesota or other places in the midwest have many different types of locations to choose from. There are pine forests, rivers, suburbs close to downtown areas, and some amazing lakes such as Lake Minnetonka.

When looking into building a new home finding the right location is essential. We’ve done a number of reviews including Best Golf Courses in the Twin Cities, Minnesota: Best Fine Dining, and city guides for both Edina and Wayzata.
