A custom home stands out
from the crowd. They are each one-of-a-kind and are typically upscale with upgrades and unique architectural design. These homes can be more stylized than many production homes—a buyer can contract
anything from a log cabin or a modern style home.
Home buyers choose their ideal location and environment, so custom homes often incorporate elements of the landscape into the design and can be built to fit each
sites’ outstanding feature; whether that is a view of Slick Rock golf course in Horseshoe Bay, or Lake LBJ, or the hills in the Texas Hill Country.
Specialized amenities really set custom homes apart. Today, home owners like to see features that
will improve their lifestyle through health, entertainment or comfort. Yoga studios, resistance pools and fitness rooms can be added to encourage healthy living; game rooms, theaters and even a
bowling alley can be added for fun; and for comfort, breezy, screened-in porches or outdoor kitchens can make your home feel cozy and welcoming.
As the country grows older and many baby boomers look to retirement, Universal Design (UD)
features are an ever-growing priority for many custom buyers. UD is used to ensure that features like wider doors, lower countertops and fewer stairs are used to create a home that everyone can enjoy
comfortably. An accessible home allows owners to age in place, prolonging their ability to stay in the house independently and can also increase value by opening the market to any future buyer,
despite age, stature or ability.
