Sometimes there are discussions about whether having a home custom built is meaningfully different than acquiring a home in another way. We’re custom home builders, here in Newton, so obviously we have an opinion this issue – but it’s an opinion based on the experiences we’ve had serving the local community for many, many years.
Our approach to creating custom homes is very similar to how a tailor creates a custom suit. You have to understand the people who will be living in the home, and create a design that fits their lifestyle and needs. The role of good home design is to make life in the space effortlessly comfortable for everyone in the household. It’s the tailored, people-focused approach that makes a custom home truly unique – and truly a good value for those seeking to create a family home which will be cherished for generations.
Is everyone’s top priority achieving a unique, beautiful, heirloom home? No, just like everyone doesn’t go to the tailor for a bespoke suit every time they have a meeting. That being said, many aspiring homeowners assume that a custom built home would be out of their price range. Don’t make that assumption. Before you commit to anything, research your options – they may surprise you.
When we say good home design elevates your life, we’re also talking about the positive impact acquiring a beautifully built custom home has on the household’s long term wealth and happiness. Generation after generation, a family home can provide a secure base that keeps everyone connected. If the family at some point sells the home, well designed homes with excellent craftsmanship consistently hold their value well and have broad market appeal.
Your home is where your family’s memories are made. Custom home design ensures a beautiful setting for happy times together. We can’t say that custom homes are right for everyone, but the families who do choose them seem to love them a lot.
