A custom home might be a very large, medium or even a small sized home. It could be very standard in many ways but still be a custom home. People often think of a custom home as being an elaborate, large mansion, while that can be the case, both large estate and a small house could be custom homes. Generally, the homeowner, homebuilder and architect decide on variables for the home that will make it different from other homes. It will usually be customized to the new owner’s tastes and desires for amenities, features, size, creative touches, and style. Custom homes are simply a site-specific home built from a unique set of plans for a specific client.
Spec Home Building
While a spec home is not the right choice for those who want to choose every single detail of their new home, it is a good option for those who want to enjoy the benefits of owning a new home without waiting several months before moving in. Still, this is not to say that the spec home buyer doesn’t enjoy any options. Rather, the spec home buyer typically does enjoy choosing from a limited number of colors, floor plan options and cabinetry styles. By limiting the number of options available, the builder keeps the cost down. This, in turn, makes purchasing a new home more affordable for those who are on a tight budget..

Energy efficiency in homes is generally achieved through the use of building materials, construction techniques, designs and appliances that minimize the amount of electricity, natural gas and other fuels needed to heat, cool and operate a home. Maximizing energy efficiency is a major aspect of green building (also known as sustainable or high performance construction). Home builders strive to maximize energy efficiency in new construction, and improving energy efficiency is frequently a goal of residential remodeling.
