custom homeDeciding to build your own home is exciting for any home buyer. Building your own home gives you a blank slate to create and add all the personal touches that you might not get if you buy a pre-existing home. Every detail from the flooring down to adding an extra four feet of dining room space are all options when choosing to build a custom home.

Another option that we provide is the ability to build on your own lot. This ensures your ultimate dream home is in the perfect location of your choice, and will suit your every want and need. So now you know that it can be done, let’s cover the basics on building your dream home.

Why build a home?

As we have mentioned here, building a custom home has many advantages. Sometimes home buyers have specific requests or needs that simply cannot be met in a pre-existing home. Maybe it’s privacy that you want? Building a home on your own lot will satisfy this need of privacy. If you have the perfect tree-lined lot, we are happy to build on it for you.

Maybe you prefer a turn-key home in a certain school district that will not need renovations? Custom building is a great solution in this case. As you can see, building a custom home on your own lot is the perfect solution if you have specific wants or needs.

What’s the process for building on your own lot?

If you have come to the decision to build your own home, the first thing you will need to do is find the perfect floor plan or design of home that you love. This starts with researching styles and designs that will fit your family’s needs perfectly. We offer several different home plans that can suit your specific wants and needs. Once you find the home you love, the next step in the process is finding a lot you want to build on. Like previously mentioned, we pride ourselves on being able to give you the option to build on your own lot.

When you choose to build on your own piece of land, you can rest assured knowing you will still receive the same level service and quality had you built on one of ours. We will help you gain a better understanding of the requirements regarding septic design, grading, clearing and more. We provide you with the best knowledge and service throughout every phase of construction.

Once you choose a lot, we will work with you to customize your home. If one of our floor plans doesn’t suit your needs perfectly, our in-house architect will work with you to ensure the design is everything you want. The exciting part of this process is visiting our design center and working with our designer. They’ll help you choose interior and exterior options, putting your personal touch on every area of your home

Once the land has been cleared, the lot is ready for digging. From this moment, we estimate the entire process will take around 6 months. Keep in mind this amount of time can change depending on weather and other factors.

When choosing Regent Homes for your custom home, we will not only provide you with a home plan of your dreams, but one that is designed for your convenience. When building with Regent Homes, every detail will be yours to choose. From the floor plan to the finishes, your families wants and needs will be at the forefront of the design process.
