A Custom Fit: 5 Advantages Of Building A Custom Home

29 August 2018

New home builders face an important decision long before the first brick is laid: do you choose a standard design offered by a builder, or do you opt for a custom designed home? Most building companies are quick to spruik the benefits of choosing one of their off-the-rack designs – they’re quicker, easier and cheaper for them to build after all – but there are some significant benefits to going down the custom home route that they don’t tell you.

If you’re currently weighing up options for your next new home make sure you check out the following 5 advantages of building a custom home. You might find out that they outweigh the apparent convenience of having a building company make all of the important decisions for you.

1. You Call The Shots

At the risk of stating the obvious here, one of the main benefits of building a custom home is that you get to decide what happens at every phase of the building process. This means you get to select everything from the building materials to the floor coverings, fixtures and cabinetry. This level of control can also help your build be more cost effective by allowing you to spend money in the areas that are most important to you while making savings in other, less significant areas.

2. Design Flexibility

Home builders will often allow you to make some changes to an off-the-rack home design, but they tend to be very limited and quite superficial. With a custom home you have complete freedom to design a living space that suits your lifestyle. No matter whether it’s a particular kitchen/dining/living room configuration, bedroom sizes, a home office, alfresco entertaining area or storage space, every aspect of your custom home can be exactly how you want it instead of as close to perfect as the pre-set home design will allow.

3. Energy Efficiency

With concerns over climate change and rising power prices, building an energy efficient home has never been more important. Choosing a custom home that incorporates double glazed windows, solar energy systems, solar storage batteries and effective insulation will ensure that both your carbon footprint and electricity bills are kept to an absolute minimum. You can even incorporate concepts like solar passive design – which factors the layout and orientation of your home into sun and wind patterns – to further enhance comfort and energy efficiency.

4. A Better Investment

Ever heard the old saying “you get what you pay for”? This definitely applies to a custom home. Ensuring you use high quality materials and a clever design to build a highly desirable custom house might mean more in upfront costs, but it’ll also make it much more easy to recoup your investment (or make more money) should you wish to sell in the future. Buyers are often very tempted by the appeal of a “one-of-a-kind” custom designed property.

5. Personality & Style

One of the greatest benefits of building a custom home is that it can reflect your individual personality and style. Why settle for a bland, cookie-cutter house when you can have something that has your heart and soul in it. You also get the thrill of watching your vision come to life in front of your eyes and experience the satisfaction of having actively played a part in the construction of your home.
