Have you been thinking about building a custom home? 2017 is the GG Custom Homeperfect year! Just think about celebrating next year’s holidays in your new custom. You can invite your friends and family over to celebrate. A new home also means great, luxurious features like a brand new kitchen, new appliances, a master suite, and lower level decked out with a custom bar or theater room.  

As you think about your future home, here are just a few reasons why you should consider a custom home in 2017:

Brand New Kitchen:

Do you ever find yourself frustrated with the way your appliances perform? Your oven takes forever to heat up, boiling water is a nightmare, your freezer seems to thaw things out at the most inconvenient times. You could replace those appliances, but that doesn’t solve the issue of getting the water to the stove top without spilling it everywhere. You’ll still be out of counter space and your pantry will still have inadequate storage space. Remodeling would fix some of those issues, sure, but building a custom home will give you the perfect opportunity to design and build your dream kitchen. Think about the butler’s pantry, large farmhouse sink, workhorse island, and pot filler next to the stove top.

Low Maintenance:

How old is your current house? 5 years? 10 years? 15 years? If it has any age on it at all, then you probably spend part of your free time trying to take care of the house. Building materials, appliances, home systems they all start  to fade over time. Before long, you’re trying to figure out how to patch drywall, how much a new HVAC system will cost, and how to install energy saving windows. Building a brand new home allows you the opportunity ditch those costly maintenance issues. How? A new home should automatically be way more low-maintenance because everything is new.

Energy Savings:

As your home increases in age, it will inevitably start costing you more. Appliances become less energy efficient over time, which means each time your air conditioner kicks on, it can cost you more money. Things like water heaters and windows can help reduce costs too, especially with new versions that are designed with energy efficiency. Your new custom home can easily include energy efficient appliances and technology that help you save money and reduce your carbon footprint.  

Your Floor Plan, Your Way:

Do you ever find yourself saying, “I wish I had an extra closet here.”? What about, “This kitchen is too small.”? With a custom home, your floor plan can and will be exactly what you want it to be. Want a larger kitchen? No problem! How about a spa bathroom in your master suite? Done. Ever considered an open concept so the family can be in different rooms but still close by? An open floor plan would be perfect, then! When you build a custom home, you have the opportunity to create the perfect home for you and your family.

Luxury Master Suite:

Perhaps one of the best reasons to build a custom home is the master suite. Imagine a fireplace, reading nook, walk-in closet, flat-screen television, and your own private oasis. Okay, so maybe your master suite can’t include all of those things, but it can certainly include some of those elements. Your suite should be a place you and your partner can escape to relax and spend time together. Create a luxurious space you’ll both love and enjoy.
