Sometimes, custom homes are designed and built through a collaboration of independent designers, architects, and builders. Alternatively, custom homes can be designed and built all in one place, like those built by Jamestown Estate Homes. When you build with us, you don’t need a separate architect and building contractor. We do everything in-house.
We know people invest in custom homes for many reasons. Whether it is empty nesters looking for a luxury home in which they can retire or families who prefer estate homes rather than suburban tract homes, investing in customization should mean getting exactly what you want within your budget.
Eliminating the need for separate architects and building contractors has its advantages. Here are five advantages of designing and building all in one place:
There are plenty of homebuilders in the Houston area. Many offer personalization to one degree or another. But choosing a building contractor with in-house plan design capabilities supercharges personalization. You are not limited to a few floor plans and a list of options from which you can choose. Instead, you can customize nearly anything and everything.
You choose your floor plan. You choose the layout of every room. You choose the materials, finishes, and fixtures. Designing and building all in one place means that the sky is truly the limit.
Although every building contractor promises high quality construction, we believe combining design and building makes for better quality homes. Our designers have a reputation for designing incredible custom homes. Likewise, our tradesmen have an equally impressive reputation for delivering skilled work using high quality materials. Our designers and tradesmen complement one another for mutual benefit.
Plan designers and building contractors are not just people involved in the construction trades. They are also industry experts who know all the ins and outs of building custom homes. Here in the Houston area, this means knowing local and state regulations. It means building to code.
As a buyer, you are going to have plenty of decisions to make. Your plan designer and building contractor have an obligation to guide you through the process. By having designers and the builder all in one place, you get expert advice throughout the process. You receive the industry expertise you need to navigate every decision you have to make.
Custom homes tend to be more energy efficient homes. However, when the plan designer and the building contractor work independently, they may not always be on the same page in this regard. One of the biggest benefits of combining design and building under one roof is having both teams working toward the same energy efficiency goals. The end result is a more efficient property that is still as beautiful and comfortable as possible.
Finally, custom homes inherently have more value from day one. They represent a larger investment than basic tract homes. Combining design and construction under one roof increases that value by way of all the other benefits previously discussed here. Add all those things together and you have a home with a much higher market value the minute you close on it.
Houston has its fair share of luxury and estate homes. Here at Jamestown Estate Homes, we believe we have a decided advantage by combining design and building in one place. We invite you to see our homes for yourself and learn the advantages of all-in-one custom homebuilders.
