Why build a custom home?

As the name implies, the process of building a custom home is less scripted because there are no pre-defined choices or menus to choose from. With custom homes:

  • The home can be built on land you own or land that you acquire. 
  • You can supply a floor plan or commission a set of floor plans to be drawn from scratch.
  • You can work with a separate architect and builder — or with a design-build company that manages both the architectural design and the construction process.
  • You’ll be more involved in the process and have the opportunity to make many decisions.
  • You can pick from nearly any product in a category — within your budget, of course — rather than from a defined menu of choices.
