Social media is a big part of all our lives. Most of us use Facebook to stay connected to friends and family in different cities (or even countries!). And Instagram has let us take part in other peoples’ lives, whether it’s a new addition to their family, a once-in-a-lifetime vacation, or just day-to-day living.
These platforms are outlets for us to share big, exciting news with the people we love and care about. What could be bigger or more exciting than building a new home? Not only can you use these platforms to share the news - you’re building a home! - but you can take people along for the ride. Here are a few ways you can document and share your new home journey through social media.
Keep Your Friends & Family Updated
Use social media to document the home building process and give your friends and family updates on the process. Let them celebrate each milestone with you, even if they are hundreds of miles away. Regularly post updates and share photos of your new home as it’s being constructed.
They’re sure to offer words of encouragement and love, sharing in your excitement and joy each step along the way.
Reach Out to Your Followers for Style Input
As you know, there are a million decisions that go into building a new home. Of course, there’s the home layout, architectural style, and landscaping. But there’s also paint or wallpaper color, flooring, kitchen cabinets and countertops, and so much more.
While there are a lot of places to find inspiration, why not turn to your friends or family for ideas?
Post photos of different unfinished rooms and ask for advice or input. This is a great way to get opinions on paint color, kitchen cabinet styles, or bathroom tiles. If you have particularly stylish friends or family, maybe reach out to them directly by tagging them in the photo. It’s a fun way to get people involved in the process and let people see the progress you’re making.
Create Photo Memories of Your Building Journey
Social platforms like Facebook make it super easy to create digital photo albums. By posting images of your new home in an album, you can both share it with your followers and keep a record of it for yourself. Years down the road, when you’re happily living in your new home, you will appreciate being able to look back at the process.
You’re going to be so busy in the next few months; you’ll hardly have time to really appreciate how amazing it is to build a home! Luckily, you can revisit these digital albums again and again to relive the journey.
Social media platforms are great for sharing updates and photos during your home building journey. Share learning moments and excitement with friends and family. Even better, each time you post you’re building digital photo albums you can revisit years from now.
