Should I build a custom home? Maybe you’ve asked yourself that question before. It could have been midway through a painful remodel in an attempt to update your aging home. Or maybe you found yourself wondering how on earth you were going to make room for a third child without selling and moving – again.
Why build a custom home? Simple. You get everything you want, exactly the way you want it.
For some people, the debate stops there, but perhaps you need more than that. A custom home can be a significant investment, both in terms of time and money. If you’re not quite convinced, here are three reasons why you should build a custom home.
It Meets Your Needs
Bar none, the biggest advantage to building a custom home is that it is exactly what you need it to be. Making the decision to build a custom home means no longer having to sacrifice the space of things that matter to you or struggle to make do with what you have. Maybe you’re an avid hunter who’s always dreamed of a trophy room. Or perhaps you’ve always wanted a beautiful outdoor space to entertain your friends and family. Or maybe you’re even looking for both and a space for the kids or grandkids to play in to get them out of your hair for a little while.
A custom home provides all this and more. Making the decision to build a custom home means making the decision to have things exactly the way you want them. No more trying to figure out where to add on to your home or scrolling endlessly through real estate listings in a vain hope to find a house that might mean some of your expectations.
If that sounds good to you, then it’s time to build a custom home.
If you need some more convincing, another reason to build a custom home is because you can set yourself up for the future. This can take many different shapes. You could be looking to start a family, or expand your current one, and are in search of a home with enough bedrooms and bathrooms to make everybody happy. Or it could be that you’ve retired and are looking to downsize, but still have space for your grandkids to visit.
There are more concrete reasons to build a custom home too. Preparing for the future means using sturdy building materials that can last you and your family for a lifetime. It can also mean creating a comfortable and accessible space for you and your spouse as you grow older.
While it is possible to renovate your current home, that can be a frustrating and piecemeal process. No sooner have you finished the kitchen when the bathroom is out of date. And making significant structural changes to your home can be a drawn out, headache-inducing process. Building a custom home takes away these pains and leaves you with a home that will stand the test of time.
Pride of Ownership
More than that, a custom home is something you can be proud of. The decision to build a custom home means giving yourself and your family a treasured gift – a home built to high standards and with authentic Texas craftsmanship. There’s no feeling more satisfying than standing in your driveway, keys in hand, looking at your beautiful new home with your family next to you. Words can’t do it justice.
Even if you’re not interested in keeping up with the Joneses, you can be proud of your home. Every last detail of your custom home is a reflection of you, from the fixtures in the kitchen to the stone fireplace roaring in the living room. The decision to build a custom home is the decision to commission a work of art.
