What Is A Custom Home?
A custom home builder works with the client to design a home that specifically meets their wants and needs. For you, this means we meet one-on-one to discover exactly what you want from your home.
Some people think a custom home means they get to pick from premade layouts, or they get to choose from preselected finishes. Though that may be a personalized home, it’s not a custom home. A custom home is completely unique, designed precisely for you and exactly to your specifications.
When building a custom home, we work with you to analyze your property characteristics, neighbourhood requirements, and personal specifications to create a one-of-a-kind home that no one else has. A custom home is a true representation of your personality and lifestyle.
Our number one goal is always to build a custom home that both you and our team can be proud of. We guarantee and warranty our work, providing you with added peace of mind. Call us today for a free custom home consultation.
Custom Home Elements
Some clients care deeply about layout and landscaping; others focus on finishings and features. Our experienced team works hard to understand exactly what you want and guide you through decisions you might not be sure about. A custom home can be just about anything to anyone, but here are the most common elements we see with our clients.
Everyone’s life is just a little bit different, which is why your home should represent you exactly. Call us today to discuss your custom home dream.
Your lot, if you have one, and lifestyle help inform the size of your property. We work with you to decide on a number of guest rooms, bedrooms, and bonus rooms. We show you the difference between a flat layout or multi-story layout, and take into consideration elements such as outbuildings and garages.
Any number of lifestyle aspects can affect your custom home design. Mobility issues may require ramps, wide doorways, or interior lifts. An active sports lifestyle could mean a mudroom transition and extra laundry room. Whatever your specific needs, we take them into account when designing your home.
Determining how many bedrooms and where they’re placed or if the kitchen runs open-concept into the living room are some of the most critical elements of a custom home build. We take legal requirements, permits, and good design practices into account as we help you design the perfect layout.
Today’s modern homes can come with a dizzying array of features. If you’re set on heated floors, smart home integration, interior fireplaces, built-ins, or even a home gym or spa. Our experienced team is happy to discuss the latest in custom home features to help you decide which appeal to you the most.
