Securing a down payment for a new home is only the beginning. Next comes the step that is at once exciting and frightening: choosing the upgrades.

The embryonic home, unless it is custom built, begins as a plain-Jane collection of boxes (rooms). Homebuilders say most buyers add some upgrades at the very start to add character and architectural details or even to integrate wiring systems.

“Then, instead of paying cash for upgrades after we move in, they’re rolled into our mortgage,” said Kristine Van Iderstine. She and her husband, Robert, hired Spectrum Construction & Development Co. to build their semicustom house in Succasunna, N.J.

The Van Iderstines started with upgrades that would be difficult or impossible to add later, such as a taller basement ceiling, the removal of most first-floor walls to create an open area and the installation of wiring for future electronics and lighting.
