Have You Considered Building a Custom Home?

Have you been house hunting with your spouse for months and months, but to no prevail? Every time you browse an existing home, something feels off. Whether it's the flow of the home, size of the bedrooms, curb appeal, kitchen functionality, or all of the above, finding a home that fits you and your family's needs has been a struggle. There's nothing wrong with wanting a home that's absolutely perfect, but there might be only one solution to your predicament... building your very own custom home!

In this blog, we'll discuss four major benefits of building a custom home, as opposed to moving into an existing home or using a pre-designed plan.

An Abundance of Options

Deciding to build a custom home provides you with an unlimited amount of design options for your home. Things such as (but not limited to):

  • Flooring
  • Ceiling design
  • Kitchen details
  • Crown moulding
  • Countertops

Are examples of details you would have in your home right off the bat. There wouldn't be a need to move-in and live through an entire construction process or wait years to have your home exactly how you want it.

Express Yourself Through Your Home

Can you think of a better place to express your style and personality than your home?

  • Color schemes
  • Open/Closed floor plan
  • Art collections
  • Furniture

Your custom home is a blank canvas waiting for you to create a unique atmosphere catered to your living style. Even the exterior of your home should exude your personality with the paint color, landscaping, garage door, etc. that you choose.

Express Yourself Through Your Home


Even with a pre-designed house plan, you are often forced to design around the home's layout, sacrificing some of the ideas you had in mind. In a custom home, whether you want a three-story home with an in-home bowling alley or a spread out one-story home with a pool and bar, it can be done the exact way you want it!

Control of Your Budget

People believe that building a custom home is more expensive than buying an existing home. That might be somewhat true (depending on the situation) in the short-term, but over the long-haul, a custom home will provide you with the best overall value. Your architect has vendors that will use state-of-the-art materials to last a very long time. Much longer than older materials from a home that's 10, 20 or 30 years old.

With a custom home, you control the budget, materials and special features in the home to make it your own. Hiring an experienced and qualified architect will help things stay on time, on budget and on track.
