Common Questions About Building a Custom Home

With more and more people opting to build a custom home over buying an older, previously occupied house, we’re asked a lot of questions in the early stages. The most common question is simple: Why go custom? There are a variety of answers to this, which we’ll discuss, but our most common response is that the house will be your future home, and it should mirror your tastes and lifestyle.

At Classic Custom Builders, we make sure to build your dream home and keep you involved every step of the way. In this post, we’ll go over a few of the questions that we get asked related to custom homes in Northern Colorado so that you can get a better idea of the process before getting started.

How Much Will It Cost?

While we’re unable to give you an accurate price range without first planning out the size of your custom home, the lot, the features, and other specifics, there is one thing that we can guarantee—we will stick to your budget to ensure that you don’t spend more than what is in your budget. We take pride in exceeding the expectations of our clients, and create a detailed strategy from the get go making sure that every penny is used beneficially so that when the build is complete, you’re proud to move in to your new home.

How Long Until the Custom Home Is Complete?

This is another frequently asked question that involves a lot of determining factors. Once again, we’d need to have more information about the home that you’re envisioning, and being in Northern Colorado, the weather certainly plays a role in how quickly we can build your home. But you can rest assured that there will be no unnecessary delays to the build. Your satisfaction is at the forefront of what we do, so we’ll get through the residential construction at a pace that works with your schedule. We also will not rush through the process. We stand behind the quality of our work and having built over 600 customized homes, we’re experts at what we do.


How Much Input Do I Get?

Unlike other homebuilding companies, we keep you involved every step of the way. Since we’re building your home, we believe that your input is the main focus as we build your custom home. Of course, we can help you with recommendations and advice as it relates to your new home. Whether you have a full-blown outline of what you’re looking for or a couple of notes scribbled on the back of a napkin, we encourage you to help us build you a new custom house.

What Are the Benefits of a Custom Home?

The main benefit to going custom is the personalization. Every aspect of the house will be the way that you want it, instead of just being an exact copy of your neighbor's house. Along with the customization, your new home will also be more energy efficient, saving you money in the long run, and be superior in quality when comparing the home to older, lived-in houses. Start with a clean slate and build new memories in your very own home that was built just for you and your loved ones.

How Can I Finance My New Home?

After we have established your budget, we will also help you get the financing that you need. Over the years in the construction industry, we have developed an incredibly reliable network of resources, including lenders. We’ll be able to recommend you to the most respected lending professionals in Northern Colorado so that you can secure the funding for your new home. Following the pre-approval stages, your lender will have to finalize the loan. This is rarely an issue, and after everything has been approved, we will have a pre-construction meeting to ensure that all of the subcontractors involved know exactly what you’re looking for in your new home.
