5 Reasons to Build a New Custom Home

A hot topic in the building industry and can often be quite confusing for clients in the quest to build their dream home!


Firstly, let’s have a look at the differences between a Custom Builder vs. a Project Builder.

We work with you and an architect or draftsman to create the home that you’ve always dreamed of, on your unique block, at an affordable price that suits your budget.

On the other hand, project home builders build homes from their fixed range of existing designs. These homes tend to be more mass produced and are built often in the hundreds or even thousands per year. They offer few, if any, alterations to the original design; and any changes tend to come with a big price tag as it interrupts their system for them to have an individual focus.


So why build a Custom Home?


Here are 5 Reasons we have compiled as to why custom home building is incomparable!





When buying a project home, you can’t always be certain about the quality of construction materials used. Custom builders liaise and work with trustworthy suppliers who can provide high-quality materials and service. When building a custom home, you can be confident that only the best brands, products, and materials are being used to create your dream home.

High quality-built homes will also ensure your home is made to last, meaning low maintenance and renovations in the future!





Custom home builders take budgets into consideration at every stage of the build process.

You decide within the limits of your budget, how your home is to be constructed and how your money will be spent. When building a custom home, you can easily control the price point of every single material or product that goes into your new home. That includes construction materials, appliances and unique features.





One of the greatest assets of building a custom home is tailoring it to suit your needs, taste and lifestyle perfectly. There is no need for compromise when it comes to a custom-built home.

Constructing your home with a custom builder also allows you to be able to be more involved in the entire process of choosing the finer details of your home, to make it completely one of a kind. Think of it as a blank canvas, ready to be filled with everything that reflects you and your style; making it your very own space.





When building a custom home there are greater opportunities to be able to incorporate more energy efficient products, which can lower your energy bills substantially.

An energy efficient home not only converts into savings for you, but also helps the environment by using less energy as well!





Custom home building really is all about making choices, and that goes for who you decide to work with, too. You have the opportunity to choose the builder and team which is the best fit for you and your home.

You want to make sure you choose a company that will only choose to work with the best materials and provide the best service and craftsmanship. This way you are more likely to have your finished home exceeding your vision and expectations, while holding its quality and beauty for years to come.

After all, you are investing and entrusting them with your future, you need to make sure they’re right for you!


The best piece of advice we can give is to compare apples to apples. Determine the type of home that you’d like to build and get prices for the exact same thing from your shortlist of potential builders. If you get a cheaper price from one of the builders you’re speaking to, ensure that you find out what they’re not including.
