Custom Building Is Our True Passion
Focusing on providing the very best quality at every stage of the project, we use effective management techniques in the planning, design, and construction of a project from inception to completion.
Working with a group of expert and resourceful subcontractors that can confidently handle any project, Caroline Contractors ensures work that follows all specifications, gets done on time, and within budget, while also providing fantastic quality.
Here are some essential things to consider before and during the custom building project.
Aim High, Then Dial Back
Having the opportunity to get a home custom built is a unique chance to make your personalized mark.
Start with enormous ideas. The budget, zoning, timeframe, location, and other factors can be adjusted as things progress. Distinguish between needs, desires, and dreams, then rule out the features you know you dislike.
This is an amazing chance to design a home to suit your needs, as opposed to modifying it to fit the layout of an existing house. You can create a unique room for how you and your family live. Everything is up to you, from doorknobs and countertops to the heating system and room layout. You must think about how you want to use the area.
Gather images of the designs you like. Some resources to start with are online sites like Houzz and Pinterest. Additionally, you can gather magazine clippings from publications like Home + Gardens and Architectural Digest.
Consider Your Lifestyle and Interests
Do you have any recreational pursuits to consider? Because it’s a custom house, you can personalize it to suit your needs.
If you ride your bike frequently, you’ll need room for storage. Maybe a studio space that is soundproof if you are a musician.
If you are an artist, you might construct a unique studio area.
Alternatively, if you love to tinker, you can design the ideal workshop.
What about each room? Do you use your kitchen for cooking frequently, or do you want to focus on a dining room with plenty of space?
Stairways: One flight or more?
Do you desire a large amount of unobstructed wall space, perhaps to display art?
Do you want a pitched roof with several gables, an asymmetrical gable, or a curved one? Examine websites like The Roofing Calculator where you may browse styles.
What style of siding do you want for the outside? Check out some ideas here.
Since we live in a coastal region prone to wild windstorms and hurricanes, we can incorporate many reinforced safety features, designs, and materials.
Design that is economical and environmentally friendly is growing in popularity. You might reduce your carbon footprint by considering your home to increase water and energy efficiency, which can lower your utility costs.
Lay It All Out
When you think of a home layout, what do you want? There are a few common styles, depending on your preferences and needs. A rectangular bungalow-style gives a lot of space for flow and accessibility. Multiple stories give more room for creating distinct areas and regions of the home. There are benefits to all types—have a look at 9 different ones here!
An open floor plan gives a better field of vision. With this floor arrangement, it is simpler to watch over your kids and pets.
Consider the light: fewer walls and more windows make it simpler to bring natural light into your interior space.
In contemporary homes, the open-concept design is gaining popularity, as it gives an aesthetic appeal that is more modern.
Think From the Inside Out
Of course, once you’ve considered the inside of the home, reflect on how you’d like your outdoor space to look.
How do you want your home’s internal and outdoor areas to interact? Should they be integrated or entirely distinct?
Do you desire a patio in your outdoor area? Deck? Screened in porch? Flexible indoor and outdoor space? Balconies? Courtyard? Will you be entertaining?
We Will Work With Your Vision
A house has more than four walls and a roof—it’s a home where you’ll find comfort, experience special moments, and entertain loved ones for years to come.
With that in mind, Caroline Contractors takes the time to make every home, no matter the size, completely custom and completely special for you to live.
