Benefits of Working with a Custom Home Builder
Learn the difference between production homes vs. custom homes
Building your own home with the help of a building contractor can be a rewarding, cost saving and enlightening experience. When thinking about a custom home, one of the decisions you'll make is whether to choose a new home from a production builder or work with a custom home builder.
As mentioned in our article on the cost of building a custom home in Toronto, there is a price difference between the cost per square feet of a new home from a production builder vs a custom home builder. While the price per square feet for a custom home is higher, you do get many benefits.
The Difference between Production Homes and Custom Homes
A production home builder will build multiple homes at the same time based on a limited number of home plans and designs, and home buyers can personalize their home by choosing from a menu of options offered by the production builder (such as layout or choice of flooring). On the other hand, a custom home builder builds a house from the ground up and typically creates a truly unique home in collaboration with an architect, designer and many other trades.
You are the Master of your own Custom Home
Unlike purchasing a new home from a production builder where available features, layout and exact location may not suit your needs, when working with a custom home builder, you are the master of your own creation. You get the freedom and complete flexibility to create the living space that best fits your preferences and lifestyle.
Building your own custom home means you get individual attention every step of the planning and construction process. It means you move into a home where you don't have to wait for an extended period of time for grass and landscaping and you don’t have to deal with dusty/muddy subdivision roads.
Building new allows you to pick your own lot, be actively involved in the design process and, with the skills and knowledge of a building contractor such as Harlequin Homes, allows you to participate as much as you want in the building process.
