When building a new home on your lot, consider tips from an experienced custom home builder to create pet friendly space. A pet friendly home is one that makes it easy for your pet to live inside as well as in the yard and one that won’t be easily damaged by active pets.

Utilize Storage Space for Safety

Remember a place for everything and everything in its place. You will find HiLine Home’s floor plans take into consideration storage needs. This will allow you to keep gadgets safely out of reach of pets. In addition, HiLine can customize your home with charging stations and places to store electronics so your pet doesn’t damage devices.

Create Adequate Area for Exercise

Depending on the size and type of your pet you will want to customize your home to your lifestyle. For example many of HiLine Homes plan have bonus rooms to separate play time from more the formal areas. Utility Rooms are beneficial to cleaning up after exercising outside pets.

When landscaping, avoid hazardous plants including poisonous berries. Also, a well-landscaped yard allows a pet to play but minimizes the dirt and mud that often gets tracked in from the outside. As you design your landscaping be sure to include a pet friendly fence to allow you that much more peace of mind knowing your pets are safe.

At HiLine Homes, we look forward to helping you design your perfect pet friendly home for your family. For more information on ideas for custom homes in The Northwest with unique architectural designs to build on your lot, please contact us.
