Posted by admin on October 17, 2013

In grade school we imagined the houses we’d live in as adults, and in those fantasies we dreamed up spiral staircases, secret passageways, and water slides descending directly from our bedroom into a grand indoor pool. Now, after all those years of waiting, we can finally build that home of our dreams, and while our expectations are slightly more realistic, there is no reason why it can’t be all we want and more.

A home is an investment, possibly the biggest investment we make in life, so why shouldn’t it be built exactly as we want it?

Building a custom home grants us that freedom and gives us a say in where we hang our hat… literally. From doors to floors, to window treatments… there is no end to the ways we can make our house our own. But before any of these choices can be made, before the floor plans and landscape can be decided upon, one question must be settled Custom or semi custom home- which is best for you?

Custom Homes

While building a completely custom home aims to meet your every specification, the numerous choices and concerns it presents can be exhausting. Building materials, for example… There are countless options! And for every material there are gradients of quality. For every grade of quality, there is a range of costs. Lack of knowledge on the subject can drastically change the value and price of the home or leave you open to being swindled. In addition, building a fully custom home takes a lot of personal attention.

It requires time to hire and oversee the architect, the contractor, and those whom the contractor subcontracts with such as plumbers, roofers, and electricians. Every decision down to the last nail rests on the custom-home builder’s shoulders. And while this is certainly a triumph, it means the final costs aren’t certain until the final stages.
