Myths About Building a Custom Home
A custom dream home is a perfectly designed space that will fit the needs of you and your family; however, there are a lot of misconceptions about the process of building a custom home. After many successful projects in and around Ottawa, we’ve encountered the same three mistaken beliefs that prevent some homeowners from considering building their forever house.
Myth: There Will Be Hidden Costs
A reputable custom home builder will be upfront about the costs of designing and building your custom home. They should be able to show you examples of previous projects in different price-points and talk through how features will affect the overall cost. Your custom home builder should also be transparent about the design and build process so that you know what to expect every step of the way, without any hidden costs or surprises.
Myth: Building a Custom Home is Complicated
Designing a home, applying for permits and dealing with the municipality and trades is complicated—that’s why you partner with a custom home builder. Trying to do it on your own will surely be overwhelming but an experienced builder will help you navigate the whole process, let you know what to expect and take care of the administrative details.
Myth: You Already Need a Lot to Build a Custom Home
You absolutely don’t need to have a lot to start the process of building a custom home. At Omega Homes, we help many of our clients find the perfect space, in the neighbourhood they want to live in. We can work with you to secure a lot in an upcoming subdivision, an infill property downtown or a country retreat in Carp.
