What Is Considered a “Custom Home” In Calgary?


If you are new to the world of custom housing, then chances are that you are wondering what exactly is a “custom home” and what must happen for a home to be considered such. We will be honest — here at Riverview Custom Homes we are experts at everything related to Calgary custom homes. We have been building them all over the city of Calgary for many years now and this is why we would like to cover this question for you today.

In simple terms, a custom home is a home that meets the needs and preferences of its owners. As the name entails, it can be completely customized to meet said needs and preferences… unlike productive homes which don’t allow nearly as much customization, if any. In other words, the future owner of a custom home has a say on EVERYTHING, from the floor plans to the colour of the kitchen walls.

If you are considering building a home in Calgary, why should you consider building a custom home instead of a production home? Well there are many reasons why you would want to do so, most of them centering around the satisfaction that living in a custom home would bring you. Think about all the options that you have! (And all of the options that you wouldn’t have if you were building a productive home.)

Of course custom homes also have their downsides. They tend to be relatively more expensive, for one, and they also take longer to build. But at the end of the day, building a home is an investment that lasts a lifetime. It’s completely up to you whether or not you want to bring this investment to a whole new level by choosing to build a custom home.
