If you’ve been looking for a house but haven’t found one that suits your needs, consider the advantages of a custom home. There are huge benefits in being able to make a home your own in every way, beginning with the selection and customization of a unique plan with the help of professional designers who truly know the ropes. A custom home lets you get exactly what you want in a living space, while taking control of every aspect: budget, design, materials and layout.
A brand new custom home is without question a major investment, but also one of the most exciting and gratifying projects you will ever undertake. All the more reason to be well prepared and do your homework in advance.
Designing your custom home
Kerr Construction & Design has talented expert design staff who can work from your sketches and a list of wants and needs to create comprehensive working drawings. If you are overwhelmed by the possibilities, create a file of images that you like from magazines and online sources. These are helpful during the initial design discussions with us.
We have the capability of providing 3-D digital flythroughs of any design so you can “see” the completed home. This allows you and the design team to perfect your dream home before construction begins.
The type of home you create may also be determined by the flavour of the community where you decide to build.
Once you know what parameters you are working with, however, there is nothing to stop your imagination!
Some things to think about
One story or two? The number of bedrooms? How about the size of the garage and yes or no to a finished basement? Think about your special interests and those of your family, such as cooking, creating artwork, video games or gardening. All of these personal details will make a difference in terms of what rooms are incorporated into your new home and how they will look. As far as your design tastes, do you like modern, contemporary lines or a more traditional heritage style?
