CREATE AN OUTDOOR ENTERTAINING SPACE AT YOUR CUSTOM HOME

It is wonderful to consider your yard and outdoor space as part of your renovation process. All too often, we get caught up with pressing interior renos as home buyers. By paying some attention to the attributes your yard naturally has, combined with your family’s needs and interests, it is possible to create a wonderful outdoor entertaining space for your custom home.

Increasing your square footage by adding a sizable deck is a great way to have more space when company comes and sunny weather beckons. If you are building a deck, consider having a portion of it covered so that you can enjoy it year round. Not having to shovel snow will keep things drier, cleaner and equate to less maintenance for you.

The coveted backyard pool

There is nothing quite like spending your summer days lounging on a float and sipping a cool drink in the comfort of your own pool. Avoiding the bustling crowds will keep you appreciating your pool for years to come. Consider installing a hot tub to really round out your backyard oasis. Having your own personal Jacuzzi for hydrotherapy is a great addition to any outdoor pool space. Having both features will help you enjoy your backyard regardless of the temperature.

Outdoor kitchen

Many people enjoy using a BBQ area or outdoor kitchen for their food preparation. This is especially helpful in places with warmer climates. Keeping all of the cooking heat outside of the home is especially ideal in the warmer seasons when you’re already forced to run the air conditioning to keep the house comfortable.

Determining the style and amenities you want for your outdoor space will help you focus on the design aspects. If you’re drawn to luxury, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and a free-standing bar set up will give you the aesthetics you seek. On the other hand, if rustic country is more your style, it might be fun to consider incorporating a brick pizza oven and a roasting pit.

Pond oasis

Installing a water feature can really transform your outdoor living space. It can be a circulating fish pond with a pump or a trickling waterfall. Either way, running water is one of the best ways to attract wildlife to your yard. Birds, butterflies, frogs, squirrels, hummingbirds, dragonflies, bees, deer and a host of other critters will visit regularly to enjoy fresh water. Many birds and animals are attracted to the sound of running or dripping water. They recognize it as a place to refresh themselves. If you love nature, this is definitely something for you to consider.

Plus, the relaxing atmosphere of an outdoor water feature can be enjoyable 24 hours a day. Consider installing some LED lighting and fountain features. The soothing sounds will be calming when you are sitting on your deck or sleeping with your bedroom windows open.

Stone fireplace

Having a warm and cozy section of the grounds for everyone to gather around will be an awesome addition to any backyard. It’s an opportunity to create some new family traditions: turn the TV off and look at the stars together after dinner, drink hot chocolate while you burn the remnants of your Christmas tree, trade in the BBQ and prepare delicious and nutritious meals over an open fire. It’s all possible with a beautiful stone fireplace.

The bottom line is to have fun with expanding your outdoor living space. By taking your family’s needs and preferences into account, you can add value and character to your custom home and property.

HAVE THE MASTER BATHROOM OF YOUR DREAMS

Having the opportunity to custom design your master bathroom from the ground up is a situation that millions of people only get to dream about. However, if you make the decision to work with a custom home builder to create your perfect house, that’s exactly what you’ll get to do. When you are ready to design your ideal master bathroom, be sure to take the time to look at all of the elements that will be important for you to incorporate. Here are a few ideas to get you thinking.

Functionality

Your bathroom is your private sanctuary where you get ready to conquer the day or unwind and relax when it’s over. Being able to determine which key factors will streamline your processes can save you hours of time over the course of a year. Popular customizations include:

  • Dual sinks, having a his-and-hers sink area can keep things organized and fresh. If you do not have to mill about your partner’s health and beauty items while in desperate search of your own, think of all the time you would save.
  • Steam shower
  • Jetted bathtub
  • Vanity/dressing table, offers great storage for jewelry, perfumes, makeup and hair accessories.
  • Built in laundry hamper, when the layout of your home allows, this is a cool feature for delivering your dirty clothes directly to the laundry room.

Storage

Consider a well-planned and placed medicine cabinet or possibly a his-and-hers matching version. Knowing where your eye drops, dental floss, razor, contact solution and mouthwash is at all times can shave minutes off of your morning and bedtime routine. Being organized is key.

Towels, face cloths and hand towels all need a home. As do extra toilet paper rolls, shampoo, conditioner and hair styling products. Having inadequate storage in your bathroom design can end up leaving you with a cluttered and disorganized space. Not the way you ideally want to start and end each day.

Ambiance

Being able to decide where to install your own lighting fixtures can give you a huge advantage with your bathroom design. Maximizing your lighting options can help you create a wonderful atmosphere. Dimmer switches are easy to install and can help you achieve a spa-like feeling. Have the master bathroom of your dreams to relish getting ready in every day.

Luxurious finishes

What could possibly feel better on a brisk morning than radiant heated flooring and heated towel racks? Give yourself the luxury of some added warmth by taking these features into account ahead of time. They are much easier to install during the initial phase of construction. Typically, this is one of the smaller rooms in the house. Have some fun experimenting with different textures and material when designing your walk-in shower or tub surround and flooring finishes.

Turkish steam bath

If a wet sauna is an atmosphere you enjoy indulging in, consider installing one at your home. Have a multi-head shower and steam option to help you open up your pores and detoxify your system regularly.

Bidet

Popular in most European homes and hotels, bidets are not as common in North America. These personal fountains are either loved or hated.

Jacuzzi tub

Having a jet tub to relax in every time you take a bubble bath can really add additional elements to your overall bathing experience. The jets are famous for working out knots between your shoulders and at the bottoms of your feet.

Vanity/dressing table

Incorporating a space that is where you spend time after the shower and either before or immediately after getting dressed makes sense. Having an organized spot to condition your skin, apply your peppermint foot lotion and pluck your eyebrows can be priceless. A place to comb out your hair after a long night (like is often portrayed in the movies) and a place to keep your personal toiletries and jewelry items will prove extremely useful.

BUILD A POOL OASIS FOR YOUR CUSTOM HOME

Are you interested in creating a spectacular backyard for your new custom-built home? Something that will transform your property and initiate some fantastic family time? Well, there is nothing quite like having a luxury swimming pool to enjoy the warm southern days with your family and friends.

Escape the maddening crowds

Who wants to drive, walk or bike to the community pool, only to share it with hundreds of strangers? If you truly love to swim you may find that enjoying a public pool is more of a crowded hassle than it’s worth, which will cause you to not go as often as you would like. Between the screaming, splashing kids, questionable swimwear fashion choices sure to be on display and things as simple as watching someone spit out a mouthful of water, it’s enough to make you dream of having your own place to splash.

The benefits of having your own pool

Imagine having a relaxing and accommodating deck space overlooking and surrounding your crystal blue cooling water. Create an inviting backyard atmosphere and inspire a vacation feel in the comfort of your custom home. The kids will want to bring all their friends over and have fun in the sun at your house.

Tranquil poolsides

Enjoying your own pool in the comfort of your own backyard is ideal. Just imagine reading that novel you’re dying to start by the poolside lounging in your own comfy patio furniture. Being able to delve into a story without being distracted by the chaos around you or having your paperback or electronic reader suffer from cannonball splashes makes for an immensely pleasurable poolside reading experience.

Add value to your home

Just think of how much value your new pool and entertaining deck will add to your home. Creating these outdoor areas that enhance your overall living space capacity will increase the desirability and value of your home. Your investment will make your custom home even more of a showplace.

Get creative and personalize your new pool project to complement the lay of your land. The multitude of options and possibilities to incorporate into your poolside getaway is endless. You can implement different water features such as a fountain, a waterfall or a grotto, integrate a hot tub into the design or even build a luxury pool house. Anything you find refreshing and relaxing can be incorporated into your pool.

Make memories in your pool oasis

In the warm months, your house will almost certainly become the preferred place for friends and family to gather and socialize. Having the ability to throw an awesome pool party, spectacular birthday party or family reunion will keep you in touch with loved ones for years to come. And in the in-between times, being able to go for a quick dip after work or start your day with a few laps will be completely transformative for your health and lifestyle.

 

A CUSTOM-BUILT HOME GIVES YOU THE FREEDOM TO DREAM

Although you might have thought about your dream home a million times over, you might not believe that actually going through the custom home building process is a possibility. However, you should know that people just like you do realize their dreams and create their custom-built homes.

When the process is complete, many people find that having a home custom built is one of the best things to ever happen to them. These are a few reasons why a custom-built home gives you the freedom to dream.

Stay within your budget

Believe it or not, in some cases having your home built to your specifications can actually save you money. Although many people think that they will have to spend a fortune to build a home, this does not have to be the case at all. If you talk to your builder about your budget, they can help you choose all of the features that are right for you and your finances. Then, you can get the most house for your money while you pick where to splurge and where to save. Plus, you don’t have to worry about buying an older home that might have costly, unseen problems that you don’t know about yet.

Plan for the future

You never know what the future might hold, but there is a chance that you have a few things in mind. If you are planning on eventually working from home or adding to your family size, you can prepare for such things when designing and building your home. No matter what you might want to achieve for yourself and your family, you can design a home that will grow with you.

Customize it to your needs

Only you know how you like to arrange things in the kitchen or how much closet space you need for your wardrobe. It can seem impossible to purchase a home that truly offers all of the features that you need to be happy in your living space. If you design it yourself, you can ensure that your home has every closet, cabinet and drawer that you have ever wanted, along with other features.

Avoid worrying about problems

One main disadvantage to purchasing a pre-existing home is that you don’t really know what you are getting yourself into. Even if you have a thorough home inspection conducted, you might find problems later on that will be costly and aggravating and make it difficult for you to enjoy your home. When you purchase a brand new home that was built just for you, you won’t have to worry about things wearing out for a long time. Plus, there’s a good chance that your home and its various components will come with a warranty, so these things will be paid for without you having to come out of your own pocket for repairs or replacement.

As you can see, building your own custom-built house can be a dream come true. These are just a few of the many reasons why you should talk to a trusted custom home builder about your needs and budget. You might be surprised by the gorgeous home that you can build if you do.
