Well, the answer is different for different people. For some it’s being able to get a better choice of design and layout than that offered by the large national builders who offer a limited choice of design and plot size, producing identical housing across the country, plus you avoid all those little extras that the mass housebuilders charge and that soon adds up.
For others, it’s the opportunity to invest money into energy efficiency and green technology which will pay back benefits over time as they live there.
With a Custom Built Home, you choose the design, the specification and the plot! It’s all your choice, giving you the maximum flexibility possible.
This can give you the convenience of a new build house but the design flexibility to ensure that it’s exactly the home you want.
But, isn’t it all a bit daunting?
Whether you’re a young couple, a young family, a growing family or a downsizing empty nester, the process of building your own home can seem a daunting prospect.
Custom Build is designed to take away the fears, so even if DIY fills you with dread, you can still Custom Build.
It starts with a serviced plot. You choose one of our plots and it is already serviced with utilities laid to the boundary.
Then pick the house type which suits you best from the range available on the development and customise the internal layout.
You work with us on your design, we will already have a design guide and an outline planning permission so you will have to work within that, but it will still give you a great opportunity to stamp your own ideas on your dream home.
It’s always a good idea to bring in one of our approved contractors at this point. They can keep an updated cost budget so that you can plan accordingly as you consider alternative designs, layouts and specifications.
With planning in place, you complete the purchase of your plot, bring on the contractor and watch the dream become the reality.
