Custom Home Building
Your Charlotte Area Design-Build Contractor
Building a custom home is not easy — there are thousands of details, which come together in a precise sequence of quality craftsmanship to create a home. We put an amazing amount of attention to details and quality in our custom home projects, to ensure you have a new house that provides many years of enjoyable, maintenance- and problem-free living.
Perhaps because of our commitment to quality, we find custom homes are fun to build. They require a lot of creativity, imagination now innovation. That’s where we shine — we are not a production builder; every home is custom, and our team plays an important role in the design and construction. That’s what lets a 9500 square foot home have water views from virtually every room, or what leads to a smaller home that is built for easy adaptation for aging in place as the owners convert to retirement.
More Than Designing Rooms and Views
Building science continues to evolve and we stay on the leading edge of techniques and innovations. For example, we can now achieve a “net zero” house. This means that the house as a system operates on the same amount of energy it creates. Some of these houses are off the grid.
It does take more of an investment for this type of design and construction, but our homeowners find the benefits far outweigh the costs over the life of the house. There are many ways to build green and have an energy efficient house, and it all starts with the design and a commitment from the owner. We have found that using better and longer-lasting products is a slight increase in the construction cost, but can reduce the home’s operating expenses by more than 50 percent.
A local engineer showed me that by adding 10 to 15% in the costs to build a house with better and longer lasting products will reduce the overall operating costs of a house over a 8o year life span by 50%. Modern facts are beginning to bear this out.
