We know BIM will be a must for large projects, but it's easy to argue that Revit is also a great choice for residential design. Here are some of the reasons:
This is probably the number one reason to choose Revit over 2D alternatives like AutoCAD. Drafting without iteration is known as engineering. When you build a house, you want to design and customize it by choosing the right lighting and colors for your lifestyle. However, this is a complex topic that needs to be summarized in an architectural project. Of course, you can repeat with pen and pencil, but Revit bim lets you repeat faster and smarter.

Revit has many manufacturers that can publish their products as component families for use in your project. This includes furniture, lighting, glass, partitions, and almost any device you can think of. This makes it very easy to assemble your home using real products and avoids images of the overall size that may not fit your space. Manufacturers also incorporate essential metadata into their Revit components, from sizes and layers to product code, to assist in buying or requesting a quote.
Residential architecture can cover small projects but also on a limited budget. Revit lets you plan early in the design phase and makes sure you don't go over budget for any area. You can see how this complements the iterative character of Revit as the schedule updates automatically so you are also able to compare how many surfaces, walls, windows, etc. You have in both versions. This allows you to make appropriate, measurable, and ultimately realistic estimates from a variety of design options.
