Custom built homes are a great way to get the home you’ve always dreamed of. A custom home is designed just to your liking, and is not finished until you are satisfied. Not only do you get to build your home just the way you want it, but you will also get to select a plot of land in an area you desire. People deciding to build a custom home often have lots of questions. Here are some of the most common questions we receive at Harbor Classic Homes.
Can You Create a Home on My Budget?
While the answer to this question depends on your specific budget, we can often find ways to work with homeowners of any budget within reason. There are a variety of home sizes and designs that suit your budget. We can also customize the home by adding or diminishing features to work around the budget provided. In fact, we provide more upgrades as standard than many other builders, meaning you won’t need to pay more for the same luxuries.
How is the Cost of My Home Determined?
The cost of any new home takes many factors into consideration. The plan you’ve selected, building materials, and labor needed for construction are often the largest determining factors in the cost of your new construction home. We will determine the cost of each custom home based on the elements you’d like, such as upgraded countertops or additional rooms.
Can You Build on My Lot?
At Harbor Classic Homes, we can build a home for you in one of our existing communities, or we can build on a lot you’ve previously selected. As long as the lot is zoned residentially and has enough space for the design you’ve chosen, our builders can work around that.
Do You Screen Subcontractors?
With custom built homes, lots of different professionals are involved in the process. There may be an architect who designs the floor plan, a project manager who meets with you throughout the process, and other countless contractors who do the actual building. To ensure the quality of your home, we closely vet our contractors and subcontractors. We only hire experienced professionals who can deliver top-notch work in a timely fashion. In many cases, we work with the same professionals repeatedly, allowing us to develop long-term and trusting relationships.
How Long Does it Take to Build a Custom Home?
Custom built homes take varying amounts of time from start to finish, but we can usually complete the process in under six months. In fact, many of our new construction homes are built much faster than that. Aside from unforeseen issues like weather delays, we control the process of leveling the land, framing, and other building details so you know exactly when you can expect to move into your dream home.
