Happy New Year from all of us at Midwest Electric & Generator. We wish to extend our deepest gratitude to all current, past and future customers we have been able to provide service to!
With every new year comes new resolutions, perspectives and motivations. It is easy to think of all the things you wish you had and dream about all the things that would make your life easier and more enjoyable day-to-day.
When you are currently residing in a home, it can be difficult and costly to make those dreams a reality. It would be much more cost-effective if you’re in the market to build a home. That is the beauty of building a new home, all your dreams can be considered! However, the trick is to not overlook or forget about them with all the other major decisions that take place and come along with building a new home.
Whole Home Integrated Electronic Systems
This is not old news, electronics are a basic necessity these days, and with each day that goes by, new and improved devices are being created and massed produced across the entire world. From computers to smart T.Vs, to smart thermostats, automatic sprinklers, alarm systems, and remote control curtains, installing an electronics control station with a touch screen can make maintaining your home simple and convenient. Imagine speakers pre-wired in every room to enjoy your favorite movies and music with surround sound. Your friends will surely be impressed!
Laundry Room Location
You can only procrastinate doing laundry for so long… Doing the laundry doesn’t have to be a painful chore with multiple trips down to the basement lugging overflowing baskets of dirty clothes. While chutes might be help with this scenario, consider locating the laundry room where most of the bedrooms are. You can also consider creating a larger mud room to include the laundry room on the main floor keeping all boots, jackets, umbrellas, etc in the same place. Once you decide on the location, don’t forget to include a sink, outlets, charging stations and counter top space for folding clothes without breaking your back! Under cabinet lighting can help you mend clothing or simply see that pesky stain you wish to remove.
Outdoor Home Construction Plans
If you grill often, it’s not a bad idea to have a natural gas line leading to the grill location. Imagine never having to refill a propane take again! Also, during the Holidays, especially cold winter months, hanging decorations or lights can be tough and sometimes dangerous. Make sure to install electrical outlets on all sides of the exterior. This will save on the hassle of running multiple electrical cords.
You never know what you might want to install after the house is built, which is a good reason to run empty PVC pipping under the driveway. If you have to install an invisible dog fence, plumbing or more electrical, you’ll have a conduit for doing so, without the need to pay for demolition to the driveway or other parts of your yard and landscape.
Standby Generator Installation for Back-up Power
By installing a standby generator at the time you build a home it will save you more money and is much easier for the gas and electrical installation. You can determine the location for the concrete pad and have it go with your designed landscaping too. Standby generators are proven to increase the value of your home which is essential for new construction homeowners to build equity. Reliable back-up power in the event of a power outage is an invaluable addition to any home and should definitely be considered in the new construction plans.
If you are going to build this year, wouldn’t it be great to have all your wants, needs and dreamed items running at all times, even during a power outage? Design, create and build for the future!
