When you plan your new home, one of your first few questions should be if working with a custom home builder or a volume home builder, also known as production home builder, is the best option for you.
Both kinds of builders are great options and each of them can provide you with a wonderful home. The decision will rely on how many choices you would like to make and how much design input you would like to have during your house’s construction process.
Basically, the different between a custom home builder Myrtle Beach and a production home builder is quite simple. A production home builder will create a community of houses that are based on a library of floor plans, every one with a limited range of personalization options. A custom home builder usually makes a unique house that offers an even greater array of design choices that are often constructed on one lot.
Here is an overview of what you can expect from each option.
As per the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), production based home builders provide home and land as a single package. They provide a range of house plans to select from. They let buyers choose their favorite design/style from a menu in different product categories. They build houses priced for first time, luxury, and move-up buyers.
Custom Home Builders
As their name suggests, the process of constructing a custom home is less scripted since there are no predefined menus or choices to select from. With custom homes, the house could be built on land that you own or the land that you want to have. You could supply a floor plan or maybe commission a set of floor plans to be drawn for you from scratch.
You could also work with a different builder or architect or with a design build firm that will manage both the architectural aspect and the construction phase of the project.
You will also be more involved in the process and you will have the opportunity to make various decisions. You will choose form nearly any product in a certain category and within your spending budget of course instead of choosing from a defined menu of choices.
The Custom Home Process
You can expect to pay more for a custom home compared to a production model of the same size as well as floor plan; after all, the usual custom home builder does not have the economies of scale as well as labor efficiencies that a production home builder has. The actual price will be based on different factors and the most obvious factor is the size of the home, the design’s intricacy, the building materials, and products that you choose as well as the land that you purchase.
Once you choose a custom home builder, you could provide your own floor plan or you could work with your preferred architect who will design your dream home from scratch. You will select most of the details of your home and you could also work closely with your custom home builder to create a floor plan that will work around existing trees on the land and that places the windows in areas where you can make the most out of the greatest views.
