Once you’ve decided to build the home of your dreams, you still have plenty of decisions ahead of you, and not just where you’re going to build and how many bedrooms you want. You’re going to have to choose who you trust to build your custom home, and that’s not a decision you should take lightly.
For home construction, you have two main options for who can build your dream home: a general contractor or a custom home builder. If you’re not in the construction industry, you probably aren’t aware of the differences between a general contractor and a custom home builders, but differences do exist, and they can make a difference for your new home.
What is a General Contractor?
A general contractor is in a sense the general manager that works on many kinds of projects that may include, but not limited to custom homes, production type homes, office buildings, banks, commercial warehouses, and retail buildings.
What is a Custom Home Builder?
Unlike a general contractor, who may work on many different kinds of projects at the same time, a custom home builder only builds (and sometimes remodels) custom homes. A custom home builder oversees the home building process from beginning to end, including architectural design, interior architecture, interior design, lighting design, landscape architecture just to name a few. Custom home builders, since custom homes are all they do, have a lot of experience with this kind of construction and can be flexible to fit your design needs.
A custom home builder is going to provide you a turnkey service, from helping you select the right property, to designing your home, to building it and remodeling it down the road. General contractors aren’t generally involved in the process until after you have a design is approved per local codes.
