Custom homes are the order of the day. With changing needs and with unique requirements it is quite hard to live in a pre-designed house or a house designed by someone else. That is why we think custom builders are such a great addition to the society. Therefore here we will see the top 5 advantages of custom houses. But before we get to the advantages of custom homes it is important that we understand the difference between production home builders and custom home builders.
Production Home Builders vs. Custom Home Builders:
Production home builders are the most common type of builders that we come across on a usual basis. A production house builder is someone who works on his land, takes part in deciding the design of the house and build a home for single families along with apartments, condos, rental properties and gated communities. But a custom home builder isn’t anything like that. He builds on the land of the owner and constructs house as per the demands of the client. He, in most cases, doesn’t interfere in deciding the design of the house.
Advantages of custom homes:
Saving money and energy:
Once you know what you want, you will not waste money on stuff that is unnecessary. You will guide your builder accordingly and your builder, in turn, will take care of the technical stuff. Clients today are very much particular about the number and type of lamps, switches, fans, plug points and so one. You are the client, and you know your requirement. This will help you save energy as well.
You are the resident, and no can decide than you with regard to the requirements of the house. This is the biggest benefit of custom houses. You will be able to do things according to your comfort without the intervention of architects, engineers or designers. Placement of furniture, decorations, room spacing, the location of kitchen and bathing space are all according to your convenience.
More Private space:
Architects and builders do not focus on your privacy. They give more importance to the look of the house, than privacy. Though the appearance is very much important, it always takes the back seat when compared with privacy. So when we design our houses, we will be able to give more importance for the privacy that we require for outsiders and from each other as well.
Uniqueness of the house:
Builders in some way or the other have the habit of repeating stuff. They work on several projects, and they copy paste certain styles. But when you are talking about a custom home, the client is the one who approves every single design and style giving no room for imitating styles. So your house is unique and is attractive.
Quality and Flexibility:
People at home always prefer makeshift provisions. For instance, design or a piece of furniture that is flexible enough to be converted into a different style and can prove useful for multiple purposes are the once that clients prefer. This is possible only in custom houses and not in the ones that are designed by a builder. You are very cautious about the life of the building, and you can be particular about the quality products that you want in your house. So there is more room for quality and flexibility in a custom house.
