What is a Custom Home Builder? This varies depending on which builder or person you talk to. Some volume or project builders allow you to customize their plans whilst others start with a blank canvas and work with you to design and build the home. Others work from an architects fine creation and build to that exact specification.
The variety on offer now with volume / project builders has shrunk the number of homes being built by pure custom home builders around Australia. However if you want something unique and to your exacting standards working with a Custom Builder is the place for you.
Generally the process of working with a custom builder will take a little longer than working with a pure volume builder, simply because you will get really engaged in what you want and make changes to designs etc which takes time. Generally with a more detailed specification the to time it takes to build will be greater, but this does depend on the resources the builder has at their disposal and their processes.
Select your State and type a suburb above where you plan to build and review options from those companies. Get on the phone to those builders are really understand what they offer, review examples of their work and testimonials etc.
Life's better in a brand new home... enjoy.
