23 Feb Benefits of Building a Unique Custom Home
If you’re debating whether to build a custom home from the ground up or begin the tedious task of house hunting, we wanted to share a few of the convenient benefits of building your very own unique custom home.
Creating Space and Organization
With a home that has already been built, you are locked into defined spaces with little room to renovate as needed. Building a custom home gives you the freedom to design your house based on the space and organization your family wants and needs. There are no compromises, downsizes, or sacrifices necessary!
Another benefit of a custom home is that you can create space to display your favorite items, heirlooms, and collections. Tom Len & his interior designers will help you create a space for those items that ‘spark joy’ with style!
Are you considering moving into a bigger house because you need another bedroom? When you design a custom home you can consider making room for overnight guests comfortably without anyone having to be put out of their room or having to sleep on an air mattress.
Creating space for your current possessions and making room for new beloved items makes building a custom home very beneficial as you can plan accordingly and never feel cluttered.
Looking to bring order to the chaos of everyday messes? One solution is a custom mudroom like the one below…
Personalize Your Home
Have you ever walked into a home and felt like you’ve see it before? Same layout, design and colors? Let’s design your one-of-a-kind home to express your style, and make an impression on every guest that walks through your front door!
Whether you’d like a peaceful sanctuary to unwind or add in a unique accent like a second-floor game room, you have the ability to customize your entire living space. Anything is possible! Imagine coming home after a long day to a beautiful master suite accompanied by a walk-in closet and a spa bathroom…
One of the disadvantages of building with other companies is that you are locked into a standard, cookie-cutter model. At Tom Len Custom Homes, we truly listen to help YOU design YOUR version of a dream home from the basement to the roof. Do you want a first-floor master suite? Or a walk-in closet with a washer and dryer? We can help make these visions a reality.
As you begin dreaming about where you’d like to settle long term, you also have to consider the neighborhood. By choosing a neighborhood you like, you’ll be able to reap the long-term benefits. For example, if you have children (or are planning a family), a benefit of building a custom home in the neighborhood of your choice is that you can select a quality school district. Even if you don’t have children, choosing to live within a school district with a high reputation will also increase the value of your home.
Another long-term benefit of building a custom home is that you can plan to age in place or make the space accommodating for aging parents. This means that the home will fit your family’s needs for many years to come. For example, adding features like a first-floor master suite or an elevator to make getting around the house very easy. Other features such as curbless showers and wide entryways can be designed for longevity in mind.
Clients often tell us that planning their new home is a very exciting experience! When building a custom home with Tom Len & his team, the possibilities are endless! If you move into a pre-existing home, you are locked into its outdated and possibly frustrating features, there’s little wiggle room for truly turning it into your dream home. In a custom home, there is no need to squeeze or settle into something that doesn’t work for you.
