Do you know what differentiates a “custom built home” from a “production built home”? Most people don’t. If you are planning on building a house soon, however, knowing the differences between those terms is absolutely vital. Quite simply, custom homes are (as the name entails) homes that can be customized to fit the future’s owner personality and preferences. They can’t be found anywhere else, unlike production homes which, though cheaper, can’t be customized as much, if at all.
Today, we will be looking into 3 reasons why you should build a custom home in Calgary. So without further ado, here they are:
1. Custom homes are unique. We mentioned above that custom homes can’t be found anywhere else. This is true. Production homes come with plans, and those plans can’t be changed. Custom homes, on the other hand, are homes that are built with the future owner(s) in mind. In other words, build a custom home and you will be able to decide EVERYTHING about it. Keep in mind, however, that working with the right Calgary custom home builders is very important as well and will go a long way towards ensuring that you have an overall positive experience with building a house.
2. Custom homes are more fun. The process of building a custom home is completely different from building a production home, but it’s a thousand times more fun. Yes, it’s also a bit tiring, but working with the architect of your future home is bound to pay off eventually.
3. Custom homes can be customized to meet your needs. Do you have an elder living with you? Your home can be customized to meet their needs. Likewise, are you planning on having kids in the future? Your home can also be customized to meet their (future) needs. Production houses fail at doing some of these things because everyone is unique and has different needs.
