Building a custom home
Custom homes, as their name suggests, are homes that you work with a designer and builder to customize, fitting your exact needs, style, and vision. Every part of the process is a decision that you make with your team. With these homes, you are part of the process from the very beginning, up until the completion of your home. When finished, you will have a house that is (hopefully) exactly what you wanted (as long as the architect, designer, and builder work together to capture your overall vision). This flexibility is what draws so many people to these kinds of homes.
However, a downside to custom homes is that they are much more expensive. Of course, the price does vary a bit depending on the design and fixtures you choose. Even if you stick to the cheaper options, it’s still a little more expensive because it requires more time and skill, and it is unlikely that the materials will have been bought in bulk.
So, which is right for you? Well, that depends entirely on your needs and budget. A production home isn’t a bad option, but they offer little flexibility in their design; made up for by the fact that they’re a lot cheaper and are lower quality materials and finishes. On the other hand, with a custom home, you’re going to end up paying more, and it’s going to take longer to build. However, once it’s finished, you’ll have the house of your dreams that is customized to your lifestyle, budget, and quality standards. Really, it all depends on you and how you answer the 3 questions we outlined above:
- What kind of home do you want?
- Where do you want to build?
- What is your budget?
