Custom Homes and Retirement, Part 2

In our last blog post, we discussed two of the major benefits of building a custom home in retirement: you can downsize, and you can customize the home to your unique needs. However, there are numerous benefits to building a custom home in retirement, and Classic Custom Builders can help.

Less Work

Let’s face it, you’ve spent your entire life working, and as you are approaching retirement, you don’t want to have to work if you don’t want to. When you invest in a custom home build with Classic Custom Builders in Northern Colorado, you can create a home designed with little maintenance in mind. First, everything is brand new, so barring anything that is faulty in the first place, everything should work. This means you won’t have a hot water heater go out or your home heating system call it quits for many years. Next is the yard. When you build a custom home, you can either xeriscape your landscaping, which requires little maintenance, or you can have a small yard that needs to be taken care of. Plus, you won’t have any home improvement projects to undertake since everything is just how you like it.

Make It Energy-Efficient

If you were in your family home for quite some time, odds are it probably needed some upgrades to it, such as double-paned windows and thicker doors. However, when you custom build a home, you can have all of the great money-saving features built in. You can have top-notch energy-efficient appliances, low-use toilets and fixtures, double-paned windows, great storm doors, and added in insulation. Plus, you can reduce your carbon footprint by using recycled materials in your home build. There are so many ways you can save money just by investing in energy-efficient technology.

You’ll Never Buy Another House Again

Once you have the home of your dreams, you’ll never have to buy another house again, which means you’ll never have to move again. You can settle in once your dream home is built, get everything in its place, and have your old memories surround you as you make new ones.



There are many things to think about as you near retirement, some of which are where you will settle down and what type of house you want. While you can sell your large family home and look for an existing home, wouldn’t you rather build the home of your dreams where you can spend your retirement years in utter comfort?

A custom home will allow you to design a home to perfectly suit your needs without ever having to move again. Whether you want task lighting in every room so you can see better, walk-in shower entries, and pull-out cabinets in the kitchen, or you want a shower set in your master bathroom along with dual heads, taller countertops so you won’t have to stoop and lower shelves so you won’t have to reach, Classic Custom Builders in Northern Colorado can accommodate your every desire. You want a home that is not only comfortable, but one that is safe and manageable. After all, you want to be able to travel to see the grandkids whenever you want.
