What you need to know about building a home in 2021

Homebuilders in 2021 face a complex set of construction challenges: supply delays and skyrocketing materials prices, low property inventory, and the lingering effects of the worldwide pandemic. 

It’s enough to make anyone long for the days where the biggest challenge to home construction involved finding the right contractor—which is also more important, and harder to do, than ever before. 

While there’s no simple solution to the obstacles of building a home in 2021, a little preparation for what to expect can go a long way, and make the experience less stressful and even possibly less expensive. Here’s what you need to know if you’re determined to make 2021 the year of your dream home. 

Anticipate Delays

Residential construction was already a cycle of “hurry up and wait” but you can anticipate even longer wait times now. Why? Several reasons:

  • Many contractors and builders are still behind schedule on pre-existing projects derailed by the 2020 pandemic. Which means finding a reputable contractor with any upcoming availability is especially challenging. It’s worth keeping a short list of professionals you’re interested in working with and checking in regularly to see who can start your project fastest. 
  • Pandemic-related shipping delays. A return to normal consumer behavior means an increased demand for shipping services. But suppliers are struggling to meet this demand both due to reductions in labor and a reduction in available transportation—especially maritime transportation. For Hawaiians, this is nothing new. Shipping materials from the mainland was always an expensive and time-consuming endeavor, but the new delays mean that patience is especially crucial for beginner homebuilders. 

Plan for and Mitigate Increased Costs 

  • Shipping delays and shortages are also driving up the cost of most construction materials, most notably lumber. Reports from The National Association of Home Builders state that material shortages are more widespread than ever before, especially for materials such as lumber, plywood, and oriented strand board. This is causing the prices to skyrocket, and further increasing existing construction delays. 
  • Some builders and contractors are trying to mitigate rising construction prices with “price escalation” clauses in their building contracts, which means that cost of construction will remain based on the current price for building materials, regardless of how much the costs increase over the course of construction. 
  • Another option? Deliberately pausing construction when prices spike without risking the structural integrity of the home. Some builders are building in a planned wait time after the foundation is built, or after the major framing is completed. 

With all the complicating factors associated with building a home in 2021, it’s never been more important to work with the best and most experienced professionals in the industry. We help homebuilders find the right contractors, architects, designers, and builders for their new home, and our free online estimator can help you navigate the ever-changing economic landscape of residential construction.

Green Light: Hawaii’s Next Steps Toward Sustainable Energy

A new utilities program sponsored by the Public Utilities Commission will provide cash incentives to homeowners who install battery energy storage systems to new or existing solar power systems— on the condition that they allow Hawiian electric to access and use the stored power during the hours of 5 and 9 p.m.

Proponents of the program hope it will help prevent a power shortage after the planned closure of a coal-fired power plant in 2022.

Homeowners can get an immediate upfront payment from Hawiian Electric on the condition that they allow Hawaiian Electric to access their stored battery power for two hours a day for 10 years.

However, installing a solar power system requires a building permit from the Honolulu Department of Planning and Permitting, so homeowners need to act quickly if they hope to get the necessary permits in a timely fashion.

The solar power initiative is one of the many ways both the Hawaiian government and many developers are  attempting to increase sustainable construction practices while protecting economic growth.

Potential homeowners can also limit their carbon footprint during their construction by working with sustainability-minded architects and builders with experience in green construction. And this means going far beyond installing solar panels on the roof. (Although that’s always a great, and financially savvy place to start!)

For example, architects can design a home that requires minimal external heating and cooling elements based on how they orient windows and doors, take advantage of natural light, and use the surrounding landscape to shade homes from excess light and heat.

Builders can swap out traditional insulation for high-quality alternatives that do more to regulate the temperature of the home. And as more alternative forms of insulation become mainstream—think recycled cotton and wool instead of the standard fiberglass foam—insulating a home can be environmentally friendly from start to finish. 

Limiting the amount of impermeable surfaces on a property can help prevent flooding and erosion, and home and landscape design that includes rain-water disbursement can also reduce water use and energy costs over time. 

Whether changes to the construction industry are mandated by legislation or simply become a better alternative to traditional practice, residential construction in Hawaii continues to go “green” in order to better achieve sustainability. 

So if you’re hoping to navigate the permit process in time to benefit from energy incentives for homeowners utilizing solar panels, or want to build a climate-friendly home from start to finish, let the team at Home Planning Hawaii help you find the right professionals and resources for your needs.

Big Changes at the Department of Planning and Permitting

Honolulu’s Department of Planning and Permitting is undergoing some major changes, all intended to increase access to affordable housing and streamline the permitting process for new builds. Here’s what you need to know: 

Updated Affordable Housing Income Limits 

The DPP recently updated it’s method for determining affordable housing income limits. The guidelines now align with the limits established by the Hawaii Housing Finance and Development Corporation (HHFDC).

As a result, the 2021 affordable housing income limits decreased 4.0%, representing the biggest drop in income limits since 2001. Additionally, the maximum rent for affordable rental units decreased by an average of 7.1%

The new guidelines are intended to help more Hawaiians qualify to purchase or lease affordable housing on Oahu. Maximum monthly housing payments  are based on income qualifiers of Low, Very Low, and Extremely Low in order to best serve a variety of economic situations. 

In addition to the updated income guidelines, The Honolulu City Council approved a $170 million toward affordable housing measures. 

Electronic-Only Permit Applications 

For over 20 years, anyone hoping to get a building permit approved in Honolulu has been forced to navigate the outdated DPP permit filing system. Applicants were allowed to submit both paper or electronic plans, which created duplicates, loopholes, and major inefficiencies. 

As of June 2021, the department only accepts electronic building plans through it’s ePlans system. This applies exclusively to the new construction of residential properties, although plans for additions and alterations, as well as commercial projects, are all slated to go online by 2022.  

The City Council also approved a $300,000 budget to modernize and upgrade the software used by the Department of Planning and Permitting 

No More Cash Payments 

In response to the federal indictment charges against five DPP employees involved in a bribery scandal, the Department of Planning and Permitting has announced a series of sweeping reforms designed to prevent future malfeasance. 

In addition to computerizing all permit submissions, the DPP is also eliminating  cash payments and fully digitizing the payment process. The possibility of adding a built-in auditing mechanism is also being considered.  

By going fully online with both the application and payment process, the DPP hopes to eliminate any opportunity for wrong-doing while simultaneously improving efficiency. 

A report from an independent investigator and the hiring of a “special master” to investigate management issues are also intended to reform the department.

Three Ways to Increase the Value of your Home

Whether you’re planning a move or planning a remodel, everyone wants more financial security when it comes to the property value of their home.

Fortunately, increasing the value of your home is possible with just about any budget. Here’s our top three tips for a guaranteed return on investment, from improving the curb appeal to embracing the unique aspects of your home. 

Up the Curb Appeal

Curb appeal is a relatively obvious way to increase the value of your home. After all, a home that looks inviting and ready to move in is likely to sell for a better price than a home that looks like it needs substantial repairs.

But the benefits are more than just aesthetic. Whether it’s replacing a damaged roof, adding some landscaping, or repainting the exterior, upping the curb appeal has additional financial benefits. 

Repairing damaged roofing and repainting exposed exteriors can help preserve your home against additional weathering, preventing leaks and serious damage now and in the future should you choose to sell. 

Adding landscaping, especially in the form of large foliage or trees, helps create a shade canopy around your home and can help prevent soil erosion and flooding. Shade canopies also keep your home cooler during the day and provide additional protection against the elements.

With the right landscaping, you’ll not only save on energy bills, you’ll also improve the financial value of your home, especially once your trees, bushes, and shrubs mature. 

Windows for the Win

When it comes to building a brand new home or remodeling your existing space, bringing in plenty of natural light is a simple way to increase the value of your home. That means prioritizing big, high-quality windows as much as possible.

Even if you’re working with a smaller square footage, larger windows make every room seem bigger. This can increase the value of your home, since future buyers see a light-filled space as a blank canvas that could work for a variety of lifestyles. 

Planning on staying in your space for a while, or in the process of building a new home? Larger scale windows not only make rooms seem more spacious, they can help regulate the interior temperature when paired with high-quality insulation.

Triple-paned windows let in light but not heat, and insulation helps each room retain a consistent temperature. Now your windows are not just a cosmetic investment, but an energy-efficient choice that  reduces energy costs. 

Embrace the Quirks 

It can be easy to see all the quirks of an older home as an obstacle to resale, but embracing a home’s traditional charm can actually increase the value of your home. 

From original moldings, arched doorways, or unique design elements, highlighting and maintaining the things that make your home unique can often be a selling point to potential buyers looking for a home that isn’t like every new build on the block. 

And if you’re building a new home, don’t be afraid to add in a little personality and charm for fear of ruining the resale value. As long as it’s an element that can either be changed with little cost to a future owner, giving your home a little personality can be a selling point.

Past, Present, Future: Things to Consider Before Remodeling

Ready to remodel? 

Renovating a home can be an extensive project requiring plenty of careful planning. Here’s  a comprehensive approach to  remodeling your home that takes the past, present, and future into account.

Remembering the Past

Before you begin knocking down walls or adding additional bedrooms, take time to consider your motivations for a remodel:

Why is there no longer enough space for everyone in the kitchen? 

Do you really need an extra bathroom on the main floor?

What spaces used to work in your home, but don’t anymore?

These questions are more than just a nostalgic walk down memory lane, they’re your roadmap to planning a successful renovation. If your house used to work well enough for your needs, what changed? 

Maybe your lifestyle or family changed since you first moved in. What was once the perfect home for a busy single professional now feels too small for an active family with young children. The lofted guest bedroom was perfect for weekend visitors, but won’t work for aging parents coming to live permanently. Or, like many people, the 2020 pandemic made you realize that a functional home office is no longer a luxury, but a necessity.

Once you determine what changed in your lifestyle or family situation, you’ll be better able to figure out what needs to change about your home. From making a space more accommodating for multigenerational living to customizing a space for working from home, revisiting the past is a great way to plan for your home’s future. 

Protecting the Present

A successful remodel should solve design problems in your home without creating additional stressors. That may seem obvious, but it’s surprising how many remodels unintentionally create new problems while attempting to solve others. 

As you work with your designer and contractor, make sure to identify the areas of your home that currently work well for you and your lifestyle. Spend a few days really noticing the flow of your home, identifying where people regularly gather, any unused spaces, and spots that seem overcrowded or perpetually messy.

If you notice that everyone seems to gather on the back patio every evening, it might be unwise to sacrifice that space in order to build a larger closet off the main suite, even if that’s what your designer initially proposes.

On the other hand, your formal dining area may look perfect in photos, but in reality, it’s mostly just a dumping ground for backpacks, work projects, or recreational equipment. In that case, transforming the space into a home office or gym might be the perfect, if not photo-worthy, solution. 

Planning for the Future

Once you’ve considered the past and present versions of your home, you’re finally ready to start preparing for the future, and designing a remodel that will help your home feel both timeless and functional.

Just like you remembered how your lifestyle or family changed since you first moved in, now it’s time to anticipate the future changes that may impact the design of your home: 

If your kids will be moved out and on their own in the next few years, how will that influence your renovation? 

How does an empty nest function differently than a home designed around the needs of a growing family?

Will this be where you spend the majority of your time, or do you plan on travel and exploration after retirement?

Are parents or grandparents planning on living here in the future? Is this home accessible for their needs?

Design Solutions 101: Never Enough Space

Thinking about building a new house or remodelling an older home ? You’ve likely experienced the following problem: never enough space in the kitchen or bathrooms.

No matter how many times you rework the layout or rearrange the walls, there’s just never enough room for everything you need. 

In our Design Solutions 101 series, we’ll tackle these issues and provide solutions for creating a truly functional dream house. Starting with finally giving you the space to finally love your home.

 Let’s get started!

Problem: Never enough space. Even homes with healthy square footage alloted to the kitchen and bathrooms can still feel too cramped. Which means smaller homes can feel especially tight. 

Cause: In many cases, a normally sufficient space feels too small due to over-sized appliances, fixtures, and cabinetry. 

In bathrooms, this means unnecessarily large bathtubs and showers, supersized vanities, and fixtures that are simply too big for the space. 

A similar issue can happen in the kitchen, especially when a homeowner chooses the biggest appliances available, including refrigerators, sinks, and dishwashers. 

Likewise, they may fall into the trap of trying to create so much storage that they overcrowd the room with extended cupboards and cabinetry.

Solutions: Stay to scale. There’s really no reason for a large, free-standing tub if your bathroom space can’t comfortably accommodate it. Yes, you can convince a builder to install it, but if you find yourself cramming a spa-size tub or shower into a standard size bathroom, your space will always feel too small. 

This rule applies to kitchens as well. Very few individuals or families truly need an industrial sized refrigerator, bakery-grade ovens, or a farmhouse sink large enough to bathe livestock. And more importantly, they probably won’t fit comfortably in the kitchen— leaving it feeling smaller than it actually is. 

Collaborate with your designer and builder to pick appliances, fixtures, and cabinetry that fits the scale of your home. Choosing one “must-have” oversized item might be reasonable, like the coveted double sink, but as a rule it’s best to stick to the scale of your home as much as possible. 

Working with  an especially small space? Consider downsizing your lower cabinets from the standard 24 inches to a slimmer 15 inch depth size can help open up a space and prevent you from losing your favorite kitchen items in the back of the cupboard. And if you really need more storage space, you can always extend the upper cabinets all the way to the ceiling for a little extra room.

Ready to get started? You’ll need a budget. Check out our free online estimator to start planning for the costs of your new space. Next, contact us for help finding the right contractors, designers, and architects needed to put your budget to work.

Wait— don’t forget the building permits! We can help you navigate Honolulu’s infamous permitting application, as well as connect you to a third-party reviewer to expedite the process. Whatever you need, Home Planning Hawaii is here to help—even if it means talking you out of that supersized refrigerator. 

2021 Hawaiian Home Must-Haves

Ready to dive-in and build a new home? Residential construction is constantly evolving, but here’s what designers, architects, and contractors consider the “must haves” for new homes in 2021. 

The New Home Essentials

Energy-efficient design features are now considered the “essentials” for any new home, replacing earlier trends that focused solely on luxury building materials or status symbols—regardless of their cost or functionality.

Today’s home “must haves” now prioritize form and function to create beautiful living spaces that protect the environment and the homeowner. Which means three of the main essentials for building a home in 2021 are energy efficient windows, solar panels, and high-quality recycled materials. 

Window stories: Large-scale windows are nothing new—they’ve been a popular home design feature for decades. But today’s oversized windows not only let in plenty of natural light, they can also protect against UV rays and help maintain a consistent temperature within the home. 

This  allows you to spend less on both lighting and  air conditioning, all while enjoying Hawaii’s beautiful landscape. 

Solar panels: Solar panels went from an eventual addition to existing homes to an integral part of every new home design plan. Not only do they help the current owner save on energy bills, they also increase the overall property value of your home.

Recycled materials: The increased cost of construction materials, both throughout the U.S. but especially on the islands, means using recycled materials is a crucial way to maintain your budget while building a home. Lumber and reclaimed wood are the most commonly used recycled material, but other options include concrete, metal, and even asphalt. 

An Open Concept Break-Through 

Our recent post on COVID 19’s impact on residential construction noted how a year spent at home revitalized the open concept design trend that’s dominated the last 10-15 years. 

But as things slowly return to normal, home designers are noticing a slightly more nuanced take on open concept floor plans. While homeowners still appreciate the functionality of combined spaces, they also recognize that a fully open floor plan might not be the best option for their lifestyle.

The latest  home designs now feature partially open floor plans, with flexible features that allow for the best of both open concept and “broken up” living spaces. Think pocket doors that disappear into the wall when open, sliding doors and partitions between central living spaces, and partial walls or interior window spaces that maintain both sightlines and a sense of privacy. 

Space to Work Out and Work In  

Even in the post-pandemic future, many people intend to continue working from home, especially since they’ve already adapted both their tech and their work habits for remote work. 

More individuals working from home may be the impetus behind the rise in partially-open concept home designs, since their work requires a quiet space to virtually meet with colleagues. 

But homeowners are also opting to build their home with dedicated work and recreation spaces, whether it’s a “zoom room” for work and school, or a fully functional home gym with both the equipment and tech needed to participate in online workout classes or training programs. 

In the past, these spaces were seen as “bonus” amenities, which were included in the design plan only when the budget and space allowed. But many homeowners now consider them “must haves” and therefore a priority when designing a new home. 

From an open concept dream space to a command center for working from home, let us help you get every  “must have” on your new-home checklist. We’ll help you find the best professionals in the business so all you have to do is enjoy the results.

Ideal Outdoor Living for 2021

Beautiful weather and warmer temperatures mean we’re all ready to spend more time outdoors enjoying Hawaii’s natural beauty. And if we’ve learned anything from the last few months of limited travel, it’s that the right outdoor living space is crucial to enjoying time at home. 

While most Hawaiians consider some type of outdoor living space as a standard feature of island life, the home construction trends for 2021 indicate that true outdoor living means more than just setting a few chairs out on the patio.

Today’s homes include outdoor spaces fully integrated with the rest of the home, and many even incorporate the same smart tech and high-end construction materials used indoors.

This means that whether you’re cooking in the kitchen or out on the patio, you’ll still be able to control the temperature, access the wifi, and protect your investment from the occasional inclement weather. 

So whether you’re building a new home or remodeling an existing space, here’s a few ideas to consider when planning the ideal outdoor living space. 

  • Large scale living: Time to consider your outdoor space an extension of the actual home. This means designing a larger space that can incorporate outdoor furniture, dining options, and even entertainment options like music or movies. 
  • Make the outdoor living space accessible from a common area of the home, like the kitchen or living area. And whenever possible, use sliding or retractable doors between the indoor and outdoor spaces to allow for a  full integration of the two spaces. 
  • Invest in high-quality furniture that can withstand occasional exposure to the elements, but isn’t out of place with your indoor furniture and design aesthetic. And don’t forget to think beyond the standard dining table and chairs—a great outdoor space includes lounge furniture as well. 
  • Consider equipping your outdoor cooking area with more than the standard grill. Outdoor refrigerators, food prep stations, and wet bars can help make outdoor space truly feel like resort-style accommodation.
  • Hawaii may be known for its relatively temperature weather most of the year, but both the rainy season and the hotter summer months can wreak havoc on outdoor spaces. Make sure to include to protect your outdoor space with retractable roofing and walls, shade panels, or screens. 
  • Get smart with technology that helps manage your space, from installing ceiling fans that can be managed via app to stay cool, adding solar panels to help power appliances, or just making your patio wifi accessible, the right tech can help transform the back deck into a home office, living room, or even entertainment center.

Remember, regardless of what your plans are for Summer 2021, an outdoor living space can only add to the value of your property— while also improving your time spent at home.

Three Ways COVID-19 Changed Residential Construction

The COVID-19 pandemic fundamentally changed the way society functions, altering how we work, learn, shop, and socialize. Whether it’s  utilizing contactless delivery services to buy  groceries  or learning how to run a staff meeting remotely, life looks dramatically different from the way it did last year.

And since many people are still spending  more time at home than ever before, it’s not surprising that residential construction is also changing in response to COVID-19. Fortunately, many of these changes have the potential to improve our way of life, and are likely to become permanent fixtures in most homes.

So if you’re planning on building or remodeling in the near future, here’s a few home ideas that will help keep your space happy and healthy both now and in the future.

Open-Concept, Multi-Use

Prior to 2020, some trend forecasts indicated that the obsession with open-concept home design was coming to an end, but a year of pandemic living convinced most homeowners otherwise. 

Design that allows the whole family to gather comfortably in once space is more important than ever, and an open-concept layout tends to provide room for everyone.

 More importantly, open-concept designs tend to be more versatile, allowing kitchen, dining, and common areas to also function as home offices, work-out spaces, or studios. When building or remodeling your home, ask yourself if each room can function in a variety of ways. This will help prevent costly renovations in the future, and help you enjoy your home for as long as possible. 

Sustainable Design

If your previous attempts at conversing energy in the home consisted of turning off the lights or air conditioning while at work, it’s time for an upgrade. Now that a house is quite literally a home base for every interaction, energy efficient design is key.

New homes include more windows than ever before, both for increasing the amount of natural light in the home and to create cross-breezes that may render the need for round-the-clock air conditioning obsolete. 

Window treatments, shade overhangs, and high-quality insulation can also help regulate temperatures in the house, and solar panels are an increasingly popular way to cut down on long-term energy costs.

Smarter, Greener, Homes

Investing in the latest tech can also help make your future home feel like modern oasis, starting with basics like energy efficient appliances and air filtration systems that keep air within the home clean and germ-free. 

More creative options include things like smart lighting, thermostat, security, and entertainment systems that can be controlled through your device—both at home and remotely. So even when the world opens up again, you’re still able to maintain and protect your home from afar. 

We are all eagerly anticipating the time where it is safe to branch out of our homes and gather with friends and family. But having spent so much time at home, we know it’s more important than ever to build or renovate a space that works in all circumstances and conditions.

If you’re ready to create a home that works for everything, contact us today to get started. We’ll connect you with the best experts in the area, help you start your budget, and provide you with the permitting information needed for your future home. 

Three Tips for Building a Multigenerational Home

More and more Americans are adopting the multigenerational family model, but multi-family homes are a time-honored tradition for many Hawaiians. Not only does this living arrangement allow for parents, grandparents, and children to all foster meaningful relationships, it can provide a higher and more affordable standard of living for everyone involved.

From allowing elderly family members to age in place, to saving on housing costs in Hawaii’s notoriously competitive market, multigenerational living continues to be a highly sustainable option for many families. But creating the perfect multigenerational household takes some careful planning. Here’s our tips for building a home the whole family will love.  

Accessibility for All

Multigenerational homes serve a wide range of ages and abilities, so accessibility is the primary focus for most multi-family spaces.  And since family members of all ages need to access and enjoy most areas of the house easily, an open-concept floor plan is a great place to start.

Keeping the floor plan open gives everyone enough space to enjoy each other’s company without feeling crowded, while the lack of walls, entrances, and stairways allow everyone to navigate through the home safely. 

When doorways or steps are necessary, make sure they are wide enough to accommodate walkers and wheelchairs, and that handrails are installed at every stairway. And whenever possible, keep the main bedrooms and at least one bathroom on the main level of the home so no one is forced to use the stairs. 

Multiple Options for Multiple Generations

In homes that include multiple adult generations, creating duplicate versions of the same space is ideal. Yes, creating separate entrances to the home is a great start, but most multigenerational homes need more than just additional entry points. 

Depending on your budget, duplicate spaces may include adding two main bedrooms with en suite bathrooms to the design plan, or even creating a separate bedroom, bathroom, and living room apart from the main area of the home.

On a smaller scale, it might entail separate cooking spaces in the kitchen, such as a sink at the counter and in the island, or two stovetops on either end of the kitchen. Whatever you decide, the more opportunities you create for successful cohabitation, the more likely you’ll be able to sustain a multigenerational lifestyle within your home.

Create specific-use spaces 

One of the benefits of multigenerational living is the opportunity for family members to spend lots of quality time together, which is why creating functional communal spaces is so important. But even the happiest of families need some space.

That’s why specific-use spaces are also crucial for a multigenerational home. Whether it’s a quiet adults-only den used for reading and relaxing or a playroom where kids can let loose without disturbing other family members, try and create separate spaces for each generation to enjoy. Even if it’s just a small bar space in the kitchen for homework, carving out these spaces is a great way to balance communal and independent living.
