For many people, “building a home” means choosing a cookie-cutter floor plan from a limited selection and equipping it with amenities off a list. Building this way can be an amazing option for people wanting to make a mark and live in a home made the way they want it. However, if you’re hoping for something completely unique to you, there’s nothing like a custom home. Instead of getting a home that looks pretty much like everyone else’s, you can end up with a one-of-a-kind creation equipped with every feature you need. If the idea of starting from scratch has you intimidated, you aren’t alone. However, building custom is worth it.
Why You Should Build a Custom Home
You get to choose where on the property the home will go.
Though the placement of your home will have to meet electrical, sewer, and zoning requirements, the rest of it is up to you. You can set your home way back from the street for peace and privacy or maximize your back yard by putting your home closer to the street with just enough space for beautiful landscaping. When you work with New Frontier Homes, we will help you identify the best location on your property for your home, ensuring your home is harmonious with its surroundings while meeting your needs.
You can avoid bad surprises.
When you’re building a completely custom home, you don’t have to worry about the wrong type of roof being installed or inferior plumbing going in. Because you play a more significant role in selecting every part of the home, you can ensure each component is exactly what you want. You’ll know what you’re getting, which means you don’t have to visit the construction site and find inferior materials you don’t want.
You can really maximize your space.
Most of us spend a lot of time fitting our lives into spaces that weren’t exactly designed for them. What if you could build your space around your life? You can build the pantry of your dreams, the bar you always wanted, the bookshelves with the window seat … the possibilities are endless. While you would have been able to use a cookie-cutter home just fine, there’s just something about being able to add the little unique touches that make the house yours from the very beginning.
You can truly be energy efficient.
While new houses are generally designed to be more energy efficient than their predecessors, there’s only so much you can do with a cookie-cutter. A custom home can do anything. You can install solar panels, use double-paned glass, and select sustainable materials, making your home energy-efficient and green from the get-go rather than having to pay for improvements later.
Everything Is Up to You
Design, floor plan, and amenities are all under your control. The kitchen can be designed around your appliances. You can have wood floors rather than carpet, or the other way around. At the end of the process, you will have a home designed completely to your specifications.
