With the holiday season rapidly approaching, you have the perfect opportunity to show off your new custom home by hosting a party. With so many ugly sweater parties and white elephant gift exchanges that seem to take over the party circuit this time of year, hosting a wine and cheese party at your home will be a much welcomed and refreshing change.

If you're currently in the early stages of the custom home building process and are considering putting in a swimming pool at your new home, you'll want to give some careful thought to the lot that you select. This is one of the reasons why it's a good idea to walk a prospective lot with a builder to best determine if it will be able to accommodate your needs, such as a swimming pool.
