What Is A Custom Builder?
As you plan your new home, one of the first questions to consider is whether to build with a custom home builder or a production builder. Production builders construct a high volume of homes within a community based on a preset library of floor plans. Each plan generally offers limited design options and personalization. A custom home builder, however, allows you to create a one-of-a-kind home with an endless array of design choices, individualized to fit you and your family.
The BOLD Company is such a custom builder who can design and build your dream home on your land. You can commission BOLD to draw the floor plan for your new home or you can bring your own. BOLD will work with you or your architect to design and construct the home of your dreams. The extra care BOLD takes with designing, building, and settling you into your custom home will be worth it, especially if you plan to make it your home for years to come.
Reasons To Build A Custom Home
You can build what you want!
Preset floor plans and options lists do not afford you the personalization that you would receive with a custom home designer/builder. With a custom builder, the property location, floor plan, site plan, and everything in between, are customized around you. You should not settle for something that “kind of works” – go with a unique home that is clearly an expression of you and your family!
When you build custom, you are involved in all aspects of the decision-making. In fact, BOLD gives you the ability to have complete creative control during the entire process. Your house can reflect your unique personality because of the direct control you have over every step of its design and construction. Rather than conform to a standard cookie-cutter build, you can create a home with the unique design and finishes you want, inside and out. It can be a fun experience and very satisfying when you know you helped to make it happen.
Whether you need to accommodate your growing family, are ready to downsize, or your family needs new space for home-schooling, BOLD can tailor to these needs. In fact, BOLD can customize a flex space that bridges the gap between cooking, dining, homework, and relaxation. A custom home’s layout gives you the opportunity to create a more inclusive family environment, while still maintaining function and privacy where it matters most to you.
You can build where you want!
Before you start thinking about living room designs or roofing materials, you have the opportunity to choose the location of your new home. Where do you want to live? If you are planning a family, you have the ability to choose your new home’s location, so you are in the desired school district or close to family and friends. Where you build is entirely up to you! While custom home builders often have lots available, a lot that you already own or have found on your own is always an option. In fact, people will sometimes buy an existing, but outdated home and tear down the existing structure to replace it with a new, custom-built home.
Your custom home can also be situated on your lot however you would like. For example, you can build further back, so your home isn’t as close to the road. You can orient your home so that you get the best views. You can create a large backyard or a huge garden. Combined with smart landscaping decisions, you have complete control over how your house looks and what your house overlooks. Not only that, but by partnering with BOLD, you can build directly into the natural terrain of your lot. BOLD can provide a walkout basement, side entry garages, or space for a pool. Options are plentiful when you build with BOLD!
You can count on energy efficiency and lower operating costs!
A custom home may cost more than a high-volume home, but there are several smart ways to save with one.
Extended warranties from name brand products assure years of maintenance-free living.
Energy efficiency can reduce your energy costs and decrease your environmental footprint. In fact, efficient designs and materials are easier on your HVAC system and your energy-efficient appliances will last longer. This means waiting much longer before having to purchase replacements. They even help your home build and hold value.
Custom builders are more likely to use high-quality materials and quality construction techniques, resulting in more efficient homes. This means lower maintenance and energy costs over the life of the home. While a home buyer should always expect energy-efficient fixtures in any new home, with a custom build, there is an even greater opportunity to dial in energy efficiency, which will substantially lower your monthly energy bills. BOLD’s Energy Star construction will save you money while providing healthier indoor air, more efficient building techniques, and lower water usage.
You can build a high-quality home!
Purchasing an existing or production home may seem like a better deal, but the quality of the products and craftsmanship that goes into a BOLD custom home actually delivers a better value. A production home builder is concerned with filling their communities and moving on to the next. A custom builder will guide you to make the best long-term decisions for you, in all aspects of the project.
One of the biggest benefits of building a custom home is quality assuredness. You have control over every material, should you want it. For instance, you will be aware of the longevity of the material and how it will perform over time. In addition, you will have an understanding of what it lends to space aesthetically. Working with a custom home builder means you will be provided with choices and detailed information about those choices. You will know the quality of every part of your home, which is something many homeowners cannot say. BOLD is in it with you through the entire process to ensure the result is the home of your dreams!
You can take pride in ownership and a higher resale value!
When you entrust your future to a custom home builder, you have an opportunity to choose the best. At BOLD, we believe we put forth our best. We will only work with the best materials and craftsmen, which means you are more likely to end up with a home that exceeds your standards and holds its value for years to come.
There is something intangible about owning a truly custom home. It is a work of art, filled with unique craftsmanship, that is a testament to your style and priorities. True customization means that your home caters to how you like to do things. This helps to make your life easier and positively impact both your physical and mental health.
There is no substitute for a home filled with choices made by you, for you. With a custom home, you are not limited to just decorating rooms. Your home will be the manifestation of your vision. It will be a place for you to express yourself in ways you never expected.
