Most importantly, if you hire someone to contract building of your home, take an active role, compare material cost, foundation, framing, electrical, plumming etc. You'll be surprised at savings. Also, consider whether your willing to do any of work yourself. Something as simple as doing your own painting could save you enough to have that pool, you may not have otherwise afforded.
Talk to everyone you know that has built a home. Most will tell you, if they had it to do over, they would have done things differently. There's no need to hurry, a well though out plan is crutial. After all, you're building your dream home.
