Home Design Phase
If you have an idea of what type of home you want, we will listen to your ideas and always prioritize your needs. We genuinely value your input and want to understand your vision. At the same time, we can also give feedback on whether what we discuss will meet your budget constraints.
When we discuss your project list with you, we can propose ideas, questions, and alternatives that you may not have considered before. It’s important to have solid planning so that you will be satisfied in the long run. You need to consider current and future lifestyles, and we are trained to help you make effective decisions. If you have strict budget criteria, we will guide you on the places where you would be able to save a bit of money and prevent you from cutting corners on areas where you shouldn’t.
At the onset, we will establish expectations for what can be done according to your budget as well as the laws and regulations in your area. The proposals we craft are detailed to include everything from materials, timeline, and budget. We also include the layout and design so that you are informed and can compare proposals more easily. Details are important especially in the design process so we can make sure that they are not overlooked during construction.
When you talk to our in-house design team, you’ll see the care they take through all the planning and architecture behind your home, as well as the engineering. They will walk you through the right options when it comes to selecting your interior finishes, exterior finishes, and your landscaping. When the process is complete, you can be confident that your custom-built home will look amazing while also being a safe and sound structure for you and your family.

Some Considerations to Discuss With Your Custom Home Builder
Your HVAC System
Planning out your HVAC system can prevent issues with moisture, which could lead to the growth of mold. This could be disastrous for you and your family’s health. You should also carefully consider how large your units are. If your model is too small, it won’t regulate your home effectively; if your model is too large, it will use too much energy. Asking these questions will help you make sure that your home has the right HVAC system.
If you don’t plan to have a very large home, it’s essential to consider storage needs and space planning. It’s also important to consider where your storage is placed, as thoughtful planning here can make your lifestyle more convenient. Do you need a walk-in closet, and where should it be located? Would you prefer to have an extra closet or an extra bathroom? Do your storage needs require you to build a larger home? These questions are often forgotten, but they are so important to think about.
In your future home, lighting should be generous and outlets should be easy to come by. Talk to your design team about where lighting will be placed and how many outlets they plan to have in each room. Windows are also important to think about; at least one should be present in every room. Large windows should be the main light source; these have the advantage of making rooms look bigger. Skylights may also help add more natural light.
Use of Rooms
Many people reach out to a custom home builder like us intrigued by the prospect of a game room or novelty room, but these rooms may not be often used. If you are thinking of adding a spare room, it can be beneficial for it to be a room that transitions easily between uses. You may start off initially using a gym room often, but if you transition away from that and want to use the room for something else, it should be simple for you to do so.
Location of the Bedroom(s)
Bedrooms should be placed in areas that are as far away from noise and traffic as they can be. If there is a master bedroom, it should be kept away from central living areas too. Ideally, it should not even share a wall with the central living area. For a house that’s built on one level, the master bedroom should be located at the far end of the house, or the side that is farthest away from the garage.
Location of the Kitchen
Most custom home builders recommend that the kitchen should be placed near a garage or back entrance, so groceries are easily brought in. It should also be located near dining and living areas, so people can access the kitchen easily. If the kitchen is too centrally located, people may be often crossing through the kitchen to get to other living areas. That can be disruptive if the kitchen is used for cooking often.
The garage should be on the main level, close to areas that need to be accessed often from the outside. For some people, the ideal location will be near the kitchen or mudroom.
The placement of the laundry room can be a very personal decision, as some people prefer to have it in the basement while others prefer it to be close to the bedrooms or the kitchen. If you don’t want to have a separate laundry room, think about where you want the washer and dryer to be placed.
When working with a custom home builder to design your home, you should think about your habits and lifestyle. Thinking about how long you plan to stay and what safety features you may need will make this long-term investment more valuable for you and your family. If you plan on having children or staying in this home until retirement, these considerations will affect what you may want to be included in the home.
You know your family and lifestyle best, so don’t let any custom home builders, designers or architects tell you what you need. They can make suggestions, but only you know what is best for your family. We recognize that, which is why we always talk to our clients to find out what best suits them.
