The foremost benefit in building a customized home is that you get a house that meets your preferences perfectly, both in terms of purpose and value.
Nowadays, most spec homes are built with “builder’s grade” materials to reduce the cost of the structure. However, these kinds of products have short life spans and the selections of house layouts and features are often restricted. Customized home building on the other hand gives you vast alternatives and lets you choose what to place and where. You would be able to decide the layout of your house, the floor size, colors of the walls, cabinet and flooring designs as well as artificial lighting and landscaping. Practically, the possibilities are endless as long as you have the right custom builders to consult and to help you construct a house that will match your preferences and necessities.
Nevertheless, building a fully customized home is costly. Exceptional features and products are not sold “builder grade” price box in home improvement shops. This way you can assume to expend 2-3 times more per square foot structure costs of assembling a fully customized house.
Building a semi customized home generally proposes several house layouts and floor plans to choose from. Also, you may choose from cabinets, flooring, appliances, lighting and spot lighting. Often, the flexibility depends on the budget allocation. For instance, a developer may offer a stipend of $ 2,000 budget for kitchen appliances and you will choose what will be installed in your kitchen. If you decide to buy devices that exceed the allowance, of course you have to pay the extra costs of it.
Even if you’ve hired a great designer and builder, you have to work and decide on many things. Prepare to spend time in home improvement centers, bathroom and kitchen flooring stores, lighting stores, etc. You will have to make decisions on various features of your house and you would not be able to do this if you would buy a spec house.
