Searching for a new home involves a lot of questions. “What can I afford?” “How much space do I need?” “What features can I not live without?” “Will I ever find the perfect home?” If you’ve been researching homes that are currently for sale and you’re having a tough time finding one that fulfills all your needs, or you want to build in a specific area or homesite, you may want to consider a custom house.

Frequently Asked Questions about Custom Home Building
Why should I choose a custom home?
A custom home is unique to each individual and family. When you think of a custom home, think of your dream house or a house that fits your family’s needs so much more efficiently than any existing home on the market. With a constantly changing world, it’s nice to build a house with consideration for taking care of an in-law in the future or creating a home that has everything on one level for when you get older. This time, you know you want to insulate the subfloor between the first floor and the basement so when you’re working at home, it’s quieter and easier to focus in your basement office.
How long does it take to build a custom home?
For a midsize home, let’s say 1800 to 2300 sqft, it usually takes about 7 to 9 months from start to finish, although there are another 3 to 4 months prior to the construction start of just preplanning for the house. We like to spend a solid 3 months minimum dialing down all the small details with a client prior to the start date. Also, all the windows, doors, cabinets and other items can be stored in our warehouse so once the project starts, there’s no hold-ups.
What time of year should I build a house?
Currently, here in Michigan, it seems like the best time to start building a house is in late winter or early spring. This gives plenty of time to get the tar on the back of asphalt shingles and other items to adhere while the weather is above freezing.
