At S9, the client always comes first and Ryan makes sure that they are involved in the building process and aware of how the project is going at all times.

When you’re ready to move out of your current home or are looking for your first home, choosing a trusted design+build custom home builder is the right way to go.

While you can always go out and look for a home that is already built or go with a semi-custom built home, nothing compares to the completeness you’ll feel when stepping inside your new, fully custom home.

For those who are still deciding between choosing an already built home vs. going with a custom home builder, here are five benefits to building a custom home that you may not have considered.

You Can Find the Perfect Lot For You and Your Family

Working with a design+build team will allow you to go and search for the perfect spot for you and your family to set up shop.

If you’re looking for an area with neighbors for your kids to make new friends, a design+build team will help you find a spot just like that.

Looking for something a little more secluded, such as an area further out in the country? A design+build firm will work with you to track down the perfect spot.

While you may think you’ve found the home for you that has already been built, you may run the risk of it not being in the most desired location for you and your family’s needs.

That brings us to the second benefit…

You’ll Be Able to Make Your Home Fit Your Needs Perfectly

Obviously, the main draw of a custom-built home is the fact that you do get to, well, customize everything. But, many people fail to realize just how big of a difference this can make for both you and the rest of your family.

For example, if you have kids, you can customize your home to fit their interests, as well as your own. With a custom home, you can make sure that your home has everything it needs to accommodate everyone in the house.

The right custom home builder will also be willing to experiment and think outside the box to help make your dream home a reality.

The Quality of Your Home Will Be Better

The perception that custom-built homes tend to have a better quality to them when compared to other types of homes holds true. Of course, you still have to make sure that you choose a reputable design+build team to make sure that your home turns out just right.

When you buy an already built home, most of the time you’ll have to go through a renovation process which can take a lot of time and isn’t exactly a fun process to go through.

When you go with a semi-custom built home, some parts of your home will have elements of prefabrication, which can really bring down the overall quality of the home.

Overall, because you have so much choice in terms of what materials, products, and other features you use in your custom home, you can make sure the home is up to your standards in terms of the quality.

It’s Easier to Add Your Favorite Sustainable Features

Here at Sustainable 9, we love to work with our clients to not only provide them with a fully custom home that accommodates all their needs, but that also possesses the latest sustainable features.

These features won’t just lower your home’s carbon footprint, but they will also save you money in the long run by helping to keep down your energy and utility bills.

Features like the H Window and Tesla Powerwall.

Some people tend to think that when it comes to creating a sustainable custom home, you have to sacrifice style and sometimes functionality to make it work.

But that simply isn’t true.

We encourage you to take a look at some of our past projects to see how we’ve worked with clients to create homes that aren’t just sustainable and functional, but that also look amazing and are truly one of a kind.

It’s Just a Better Overall Experience

For the best experience when it comes to finding your new forever home, going custom is the best move you can make.

Custom home builders have reputations for being willing to listen to their clients intently to make sure that they not only feel like they are being heard but to make sure that what they want, they get.

At S9, we follow a thorough, collaborative 6-step process that you’ll be heavily involved in every step of the way:

Consultation – During our consultation phase, we’ll sit down with you and discuss what your dream home looks like and how we can help create it.

Architectural/Design Agreement -We won’t get started on building until you are completely satisfied with the outline. We want to make sure that you are as excited about your home as we are.

Product/Material Selection – With sustainability in mind, we’ll research fiscally appropriate vendors, as well as recommend products that will increase the energy efficiency of your home long term.

Pricing and Budget – With extensive knowledge of our industry, we’ll discuss how to construct your modern, sustainable home while making it affordable for you.

Pre-Construction – We’ll make sure that all our i’s have been dotted and t’s crossed before getting into the final stage of the process.

Construction – Watch your home come to life as our construction partners craft the perfect home that has been carefully designed for you.
