Should I build a custom home or use a plan?

The decision of whether to build a custom home or use a pre-made plan ultimately depends on your individual preferences and circumstances. Here are some factors we have put together for you to consider:

  1. Budget: Building a custom home typically comes with a higher price tag than using a pre-made plan. If you have a limited budget, using a pre-made plan may be a more affordable option.
  2. Design preferences: If you have specific design preferences that aren’t offered in pre-made plans, then building a custom home may be the better choice. However, if you’re happy with the designs offered in pre-made plans, then using one of those may be a simpler and quicker option.
  3. Location: Depending on where you’re building, there may be restrictions on what type of home you can build. If you’re in an area with strict building codes or zoning regulations, a pre-made plan may be the easier option.
  4. Timeframe: Building a custom home can take longer than using a pre-made plan, especially if you’re starting from scratch with the design process. If you need to move into your new home quickly, using a pre-made plan may be the better option.
  5. Expertise: Building a custom home requires more expertise and involvement than using a pre-made plan. If you have experience in construction or have a trusted contractor, then building a custom home may be feasible. Otherwise, using a pre-made plan with a trusted builder may be the safer option.
