Wouldn’t it be great to find a home that perfectly meets all your wants and needs instead of one that mostly does? Of course, to find an existing home that checks all your boxes, you’ll need to find someone with your exact tastes and needs and then convince them to sell their home to you. As scary a thought as that may be, it’s luckily not likely to happen. Therefore, the simplest way to live in the perfect home for you is to have it constructed from scratch.
Luckily, building a custom home comes with numerous advantages, from being able to tweak your layout to work for you to picking out every last fit and finish. Learn more about these advantages, how choosing the right contractor can make them more affordable, and what our clients have to say about the process by reading below.
Custom Without Compromise
Building a custom home means there will be nothing in your home that you’ll have to settle for. You get to choose every single thing about how your new home will look and function: appliances, wall and floor coverings, trim, cabinetry, and accessories. If you’re a fan of natural light, you can have skylights placed in multiple rooms. If you want to live in an Art Deco masterpiece, you can pick the materials and styling to make it happen. Whatever you want, you can make it happen!
The Right Layout for Life
Constructing a home from scratch means you design the layout that works for your and your family’s needs. If you prefer a more open floor plan, you can have it! If a spiral staircase has always been something you’ve wanted, you can have one put in your custom home. If you’re a bibliophile with an extensive collection, you can have built-in shelves constructed to house every last volume.
This customization of the layout extends to the exterior of your home. Imagine waking up every morning to enjoy a cup of coffee on your own beautiful porch. And that porch doesn’t have to be next to the front door: you can put it off the kitchen, the living room, or even your bedroom!
Make the Most of Materials
Another benefit of a custom home is choosing the materials. With pre-existing homes, you’ll have to be satisfied with whatever the previous owner picked, unless you want to pay for an expensive remodeling project. With a custom home, you choose each material that goes into the home. This allows you to make the best decisions not just for style but also for energy efficiency and durability. You won’t have to wonder how long materials will last because you’ll know exactly what was used and when it was installed. With pre-existing homes, you don’t know what’s lurking under the surface. Even a beautifully finished home could have cut corners on materials to save money – and you typically won’t find that out until you try to renovate or something goes wrong.
Choose the Right Contractor to Control Costs
Many people operate under the misconception that a custom-made home is automatically going to be more expensive than purchasing an already existing one. But your new custom home will cost what you’re comfortable spending. Since you control every aspect of your custom home, you also decide the budget. Once you’ve decided on your budget, a reputable contractor can help you get the best value for your money. This is just one reason it’s extremely important to hire a quality contractor.
