Is it Time to Build Your Custom Home? 5 Signs You Need to Build a Custom Home

custom homeYou've seen what feels like dozens of houses in your search for a new home. And while some of them were quite nice, if you're honest, you still feel like you'd be settling if you made an offer on any of them. You can't help but ask yourself: is now the time to build your custom home? Keep on reading this post to find out some of the biggest signs that there's no time like the present to build your home from the ground up.

1. Your Finances Are in Order

The first sign that you're ready to build your custom home? Your finances are in a place where you can do. This means that you have a great credit score and that you've eliminated most, if not all, of your debt. This means you'll have money to spend not only on the home's construction but also on the furniture and landscaping that comes with it. You've also researched and clearly defined your budget, and understand the cost of custom built homes. You even have enough saved up to make a payment in case of an emergency setback during your building process.

2. Your Current Home Isn't Cutting It

Another reason to build your custom home? Because the space where you are now no longer fits your needs. Maybe you've added to your family. Maybe you need a larger yard. Maybe you're unhappy with the neighborhood, the architectural style of the home, or even its overall energy efficiency. Your old home just doesn't have the things that you want and need. And although you've looked on the market, it just seems like your dream home hasn't been built yet. It's up to you to build it.

3. You Have a Unique Vision

Perhaps you're ready to build a custom home because you have a particularly unique vision for what you'd like your new home to look like. Maybe you're a fan of taking architectural design risks, and want to create a home that stands out from the other cookie-cutter options on the block. Maybe you know that you want a backyard with a pool, a sprawling garden, or even a guest house -- and you're not willing to compromise on that vision. Working with a team that can make your dreams a reality ensures that you'll be completely happy with your new home. There's no reason for you to settle. You just need to find someone who can make it happen.

Are You Ready to Build Your Custom Home?

We hope this post has you inspired to start the process of learning how to build your custom home. Of course, in order to get what you want, you need to find a team of experienced and qualified professionals who can make it happen. That's where we come in. If you live in or around the Baxter, MN area, we want to be able to work with you to make your dream home a reality. Get in touch with us today to learn how to get started.

Dale and Amy | Stonebridge development in Brainerd, MN

"We highly recommend B-Dirt Construction LLC as a builder of high quality homes.

We found from the very start they made what could have been a very stressful experience painless. They were no pressure as we explored our options and always prompt in presenting drawings, ideas and costs with out any fees attached or contract signed. Once we made our decision to go with them found the whole building process a joy. The team they have is great to work with, each and everyone of them even their subs. As an added bonus they even provide us with beautiful place to live at no charge while our house was being built. The icing on the cake was they finished our project early allowing us to have ample time to get in before the holidays!"
