What Makes a Custom Home Custom?
The differences begin in the design of the house itself. According to the dictionary, the word custom means “to build according to individual or personal specifications or preference; to make (something) to a customer’s specifications”. This is what custom home builders do, and this is what separates a custom constructed home from an existing home or one that went up as a spec house by a builder.
When a person chooses design a custom home, they have significant input on what they want in the floor plan. They may begin from scratch or they may use an existing architectural rendering as the starting point. From here walls begin to move, windows are added, any number of personalized specifications will be incorporated before the design is ready to build.
The list of items that are customized is extensive, including interior and exterior surfaces, such as walls, roofing, brick, siding and more. Homeowners choose the windows they want. Kitchen cabinets may be handmade, with granite and other counter tops. Flooring and carpeting are high-grade and precisely what the homeowner intends. Appliances and other electrical features are chosen for quality. An interior designer may be a part of the team. Custom home builders even select premium grade paints. They will use only top grade materials, and often use hand chosen crews and subcontractors to do the work. In a customized home, the corners must fit and everything must be flush, even and symmetrical. In fact, project management and attention to detail is a hallmark of a Amyx Signature Homes project that makes a custom home, custom.
