The definition of a Custom Home Builder varies greatly. It includes builders that build your plans, i.e. a customer has had specific plans drawn up by architects or draftsmen etc and requires a builder. Alternatively some builders have display homes which they use as a basis for also offering modifications and changes to their designs or will assist a customer by drawing up and building a home from scratch.
If you have specific requirements of the home you wish to build and cannot find a display home that matches those then its likely you need a builder who is happy to customise to satisfy your requirements, a Custom Home Builder.
Custom Home Builders are also ideally suited to construct on dual occupancy sites, i.e. building multiple units and townhouses.
When dealing with a Custom Home Builder one of the great benefits is that you start with a blank canvass and can precisely specify every component of the home to suit your every need. Generally this process is much more labour intensive in the initial stages and also during construction and therefore costs more.
