If you want a specific kind of a house catered to the taste and preferences of your family, then you should go for a custom house. A specialized custom home builder would handle such a project. Not any random home builder can handle such projects. It is a lot more complicated for an ordinary builder to successfully complete a custom home construction project.
The plans used for the construction of a custom home is created in collaboration among the client, builder, architect or the designer. A builder would very rarely create a custom home plan on his own without the help of an architect. Only on certain occasions where the client gives some references of the home design that he wants, the builder will create plans on his own. Usually, it is recommended to hire a professional home designer for a custom home project, especially if the project involves a high budget. In such cases, it is not recommended to take risks. Using a professional home designer may cost you a little more. But, you can rest assured that the project will turn out as per your expectations.
