6 Benefits of Custom Building Your Home

Custom building
You can make minor adjustments to your layout as your home begins to take shape.

1. You will have the freedom to design and tweak the layout as you desire

If you are custom building your home you have the freedom to choose the perfect design and layout for your particular tastes and needs. Builders who construct mass produced homes tend to design their models according to what is currently trending in the housing market. The current trends may or may not be what you want in your dream home, so choosing to go with a custom builder allows you to get a home that will accommodate your unique family, not the majority of families.

As your home begins to take shape, you will have the opportunity to make minor tweaks along the way as you see the layout take shape. This is so important as sometimes it's difficult to visualize what something will look like from a drawing, but once you see the space start to take shape you will have a better idea of what is going to work best for you.

Custom building allows you to choose a beautiful location.

2. You can choose the location of your dreams

One of the biggest perks of building a custom home is that you also get to choose where it will be built. If you have children, you may want to choose a location that allows them to attend a great school, or you may want to be located close to shopping centres, a good hospital, or your favourite gym. If you want to finally make the move from the city to the country, this is your opportunity. You can select a quiet and picturesque lot that may even cost less than a city one which means you may have more to spend on your custom home itself. If you love to garden or would like to finally have an open space for your furry friends to run, then you can select a larger lot on which to build.

A custom home is better built and should need less maintenance.

3. You should have less maintenance and worries over time

Buying quality items means that they will last longer; the same is true with custom building your home. With a custom home, you are able to make sure that the materials that go into the construction of your home are top quality. This should mean that you will have less maintenance over time as your home will need fewer repairs along the way.

You can also have peace of mind with a new home warranty. All new home constructions are required to have a new home warranty according to the Ontario New Home Warranties Plan Act. This assurance can give you peace of mind. If for any reason an issue arises once you have taken possession of your home, contact your builder to get it resolved.

An energy efficient plays a part in reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

4. You will have a more energy efficient home

Each Energy Star certified home will give you up to 30% energy savings. Not only will that save you a significant amount of money over time, but you will also be helping to make a significant impact on reducing greenhouse gas emissions, which is great for the environment. An Energy Star certified home will come with unseen energy efficient features hidden in your attic, behind your walls, and under your foundation. These are designed and built to work together to make your home more energy friendly. These include:

  • Reduced air leaks and drafts
  • Consistent temperatures all year long
  • Better water management
  • Improved indoor air

You can save up to 30% on energy costs with an Energy Star certified home.

5. You get to choose everything

An awesome benefit of custom building your home is that you get to choose everything that goes into it, including the cabinetry, flooring, wall colours, trim, fixtures, lighting, etc. You won't have to settle for second best as you might have to if you buy a pre-built home. Everything you want can be included, as long as it fits into your budget. You get to choose the custom building products and the result will be a home that truly reflects your personality and will suit you and your family's lifestyle perfectly.
