Your home is precious to you. That’s certainly the case when you build a home, since you get to choose many of the features and design elements. However, all new construction is not created equal. Custom homes and production homes may seem to share many of the same features. However, there are also many important distinctions between the two that you need to be aware of. Here’s an overview of these differences from Holbrook & Nichols Construction, a custom home builder in Lake Toxaway, NC.
- Who decides the design? In production homes, you only have a certain number of exterior styles and floor plans to choose from. You’ll select your options from a menu of sorts, including the different finishes for your floors, countertops, and cabinets. Custom homes, on the other hand, are designed to your exact wishes. You’ll work with a custom home builder who will go over every detail with you. Bring your ideas to the table and have them come to life before your eyes!
- Who chooses the land? Although some production home builders will let you choose your land, many only build in pre-planned communities. While you may have some say-so on which lot you choose, that’s about it. A custom home builder will help you find land if needed but will also design your home to fit on land you already have. You have complete control over the location of your dream home.
- Who can guide you through the process? The people you talk to about production homes are typically not the builders themselves. They’re essentially salespeople who are there to make the deal happen. A custom builder is there to make you happy, not the corporation. They’ll take time to answer all your questions, help you make decisions, and will even refer you to other professionals (like interior designers) who can make the process easier. You’re not just buying a home; you’re buying our expertise.
