How do you deal with the waiting time to build a house or other asset?

Hello Elphas! I'm looking for tips and suggestions on what to do while waiting for a house to be built. I'm creating a guide to deliver to clients once they sign the contract at my architecture and construction office. Other insights and ideas are welcome. Many thanks to whoever contributes.

Can you tell us a little more about what your office offers? Are you stand-alone? Part of a national company?
I am self-employed and manage independent projects, mainly home construction. I have help from partners. I have a small local business.
Hell, that sounds like something I'd be interested in personally.Because of that, here's what I'd want:Play up the fact you're an independent business! Let clients know what's happening at each phase, but maybe also provide information about the area into which they'll be moving?
