A house should be so much more than just a functional box to live in. Of course, standardised home plans are cheaper to use – but wouldn’t you just love to call the shots? Getting architects and project managers in your corner might be easier than you thought it would be, and you’ll get to enjoy all the benefits of getting a dream house that’s like no other. If you thought that covers all the benefits of having a custom-designed home, think again! Let’s dig a little deeper to help you develop a better picture of what a custom designed home can do for you!
A modern yet classic-looking “farmhouse” is among the custom homes Calgary can boast. It illustrates the way in which you can combine modern convenience with old-world aesthetics. Buying a real old house can become a renovation nightmare simply because the house was never designed for modern living. But you don’t have to live with compromises and inconvenience. Your only limitations in specifying the type of house you want are your imagination and your budget. Minimalism inside and out? A home that looks like an artwork? Whatever you like best becomes your own.
Your family wants to leave as little environmental harm in its wake as possible. You want to go green with an emphasis on natural airflow, sustainable energy, natural light, and all things green. Changing up a standard home to match your ambitions could cost nearly as much as starting from scratch, so why not do just that? Modern green building techniques and designs will give you solutions that match your ideals.
Dad wants a gym. Mom wants a spa-like bathroom, Junior wants a Disney-inspired playroom and your teenager wants a practice room for her pop band. Can all these diverse interests be brought together? It’s not so easy if a house is already laid out, but much easier if you decide to go for a custom home that caters to your family’s interests. You get to say what goes where – and it’s likely that that music practice room is going to be very far away from the centre of activity, even if it has been built with soundproofing in mind!
When you choose a custom home, you have a designer original – so opt for originality, creating fabulous spaces to suit your tastes. Whether these lean towards opulence or tend more towards an appreciation for natural materials, the choice is always yours, and the result is uniquely “you.” From incredible pavement appeal to breathtaking interiors, it all begins with good design. Think about any style of room you’d like to find yourself in: decor is only the cherry on top.
Any building adds at least some value to a property, but a unique original adds thousands of dollars to its price tag. While you’re likely to love the results so much that you’re unlikely to sell in any hurry, life does throw some curveballs your way. When the time comes to move on, your designer home should realise a better price than its more ordinary neighbours ever can.
Home is where your loved ones are, but living in a home that’s been designed for your family adds the magic touch. It may even become a family treasure that’s handed down across generations. Building wonderful memories and a warm atmosphere will be up to you – building the ideal setting for that is the reason why custom homes will always be in demand.
