If your home is the biggest investment that you ever make, shouldn’t it be perfect and exactly how you want it? It’s true that the Greater Vancouver area has a lot of new construction going on lately, but that doesn’t mean any old home will do.
Building a custom home is the only way to make sure you’re nestled where you should be. In this article, we’ll reveal the reasons why you should design and build your own dream home.
Planning for the Future
Building your own custom home allows you to consider factors, events, and circumstances that may affect your life in the future. The factors can be varied, for instance, if you’re expecting a child, whether it will be in nine months or in the next few years, you might want to build a nursery room, or account for extra bedrooms for the kids.
Whenever you start a new construction project, it is just that; a new project. There is no risk of purchasing a house with unresolved structural problems. Even houses built within the last 10 years might have termite damage, mould, water damage, etc, that previous owners were unaware of. Unknowns like these could cost you tons of money in the long run. The benefits of building your own house are that such issues do not arise.
When it comes to energy efficiency and conservation, some older houses aren’t the best. Choosing to build your own home is a great way to reduce future energy costs and care for the environment at the same time.
We’re not just talking about solar panels here; we’re also talking about low flow toilets, energy efficient appliances, and lighting fixtures. Your bills will be kept down and savings will be increased when the materials used meet modern energy regulations.
It is common to see cookie-cutter houses today that are more or less the same from the inside as well as from the outside. Partnering with our team, however, will allow you to design whatever you want. We have a dedicated team of designers who will walk you through all the steps of designing your dream home, from the location of the bedrooms and the layout of the kitchen to the porch lights.
An Expression of You
Don’t forget, it’s your custom build; the details are where you can add your heart and soul. Our design team works closely with you so that every detail of the room is perfect, from the wall colours to the floorboard nails. If you have a dream, we will help you to accomplish it, down to the smallest detail.
Location, Location, Location
Location is everything. You might want to be near a vibrant nightlife area, you may want to be far from the hustle and bustle of the city and need a large yard for your kids and dogs to play in, a lake to fish in, or you may want to send your children to a particular school. There are no limits to the possibilities. Building on your own lot offers limitless possibilities when it comes to having these things.
Customizing your own home means more than just building it how you want. It means building it where you want. Whether you own a home site already or you are interested in building one, there are a number of home sites throughout the Greater Vancouver area where your construction can begin!
The process of creating something of one’s own is unique and special. A sense of pride and accomplishment is felt when people create something, whether it’s a book, a meal, or their own home. When you build your dream home, you will feel a sense of pride that you were able to create something so meaningful and important that is uniquely your own.
The fact remains that your fingerprints will be all over your home, even if you aren’t putting nails in wood or laying flooring yourself. With our team’s help, you’ll be able to select one of many available home sites, plan your layout with our design specialists, walkthrough your build multiple times, and select everything from colours to materials to fixtures. As long as you have a vision, we are simply helping you make it happen.
