Let Custom Home Builders Highlight Natural Settings

Custom Home Builders Vancouver, BCDo you have the opportunity to build a house that overlooks the sea? Or is tucked into a heavenly haven surrounded by trees, dramatic rock outcrops and coastal creeks? If you’re fortunate enough to have these kinds of natural features on your west coast property, you’ve got the makings of a truly imaginative dwelling. And not just on the outside.

Bold natural elements in the Vancouver area can provide great inspiration for talented custom home builders in creating spectacular home designs that capitalize on the beauty at hand.

Clever Custom Home Builders Value Mother Nature

Farsighted custom home builders don’t just rush in and clear a lot before assessing the full potential of its existing features. They know that magnificent conifers take many years to become established, and that a dramatic rocky outcrop doesn’t appear overnight. Not only that, but nature, in essence, captures the feelings of both vitality and serenity, two states that help provide the “yin and yang” of beautifully balanced design. Let this be your mantra in skillfully incorporating the outdoors into your custom built home.

Custom Home Builders Turn a Design Inside Out

Custom Home Builder Vancouver, BCThink open concept and marvelous mojo. Trust truly creative custom home builders to take advantage of the outdoors by bringing it inside, literally. Go beyond the predictable, for instance, by nestling the house up against a dramatic rock outcrop, letting it become part of the structure of the home itself. Talk about the wow factor!

Why not capture a creek, having it trickle gently among smooth stones beneath a slightly raised walkway in your unforgettable entrance? Or take a tree to the next level by having it actually become part of your deluxe en suite bathroom. Where there’s a will, there’s a way! And with the talents of an experienced custom home builder’s top-notch design team at your disposal, creativity knows no bounds.

Amplify the allure and privacy of your property’s natural setting with expansive windows and yellow cedar-framed glass doors, to showcase unspoiled outdoor views enhanced by loads of natural light.

Keep it Streamlined, Tasteful and Sophisticated

Using top quality stone, wood and metal materials, custom home builders can blend a house beautifully into its natural surroundings. Let the landscape be the inspiration and go minimalist with décor, using muted, earthy tones and occasional bright accents. Highlight the best aspects of the changing seasons with complementary indoor touches. Keep a gorgeous ceramic floor vase in your dining area, filled with sprays of pastel blossoms in springtime, branches of rich red leaves in the fall.

Feature the forest, open up to an outcrop, or capture a creek. Take advantage of what Nature has to offer in bringing drama and depth to the ambience of your custom built west coast home.
