Many people think that custom built houses are enormous mansions on palatial grounds, and it’s true to say that some of them are. However, they vary in size just as much, if not more, than production homes. A custom home is one that is built to satisfy the particular needs of those who commission it, and fulfill desires that range from the number of levels, to the placement of rooms and fittings, to the need for bespoke touches such as soundproofing or mood lighting.
When you go to a restaurant, you are presented with a menu which you can sometimes tweak a little to make the options more appealing to you – for example by ordering a gluten-free version of a menu item. This is akin to ordering a production built home. Imagine, instead, being able to talk to the head chef and ingredient suppliers about your specific tastes in food and any particular cravings you may have – that is far more like the custom home build experience.
Choosing a production home is a little like ordering clothes online; they may look good in the pictures, but when they are delivered you find that they don’t really suit you or fit properly. A custom builder, like a dressmaker or tailor, can design and create a home that not only looks great, but also fits your personality and lifestyle to a tee. Although the design process can take time and there are more decisions to be made along the way, with a custom built home you can be guaranteed that the end result will require no alteration.
Production home choices allow for small differences between homes in fittings, colours and appliances; however a truly custom built home will be the only one of its kind, guaranteed. Whether you start with your own blueprints or come to the designer with nothing but dreams, the freedom and flexibility of custom building will not let you down. The fittings, colours, finishes and even the layout of rooms can all be specified and designed to suit your preferences.
