Reasons to Build a Custom Home in Northeast Wisconsin

5 Reasons to Build a Custom Home in Northeast Wisconsin

Northeastern Wisconsin has a host of beautiful views, short commutes, plenty of career opportunities, and events to attend. With all of these perks, it’s reasonable to say Northeastern Wisconsin is a great place to live and settle down. If you have been contemplating whether to build or buy a home, we have a few reasons to consider building a custom home. 

1. Build for the future

One of the most common reasons families move is they start to outgrow their current home with the addition of children and pets. With a custom home, you have the opportunity to design a space that makes sense for your family now and in the future. 

What are some considerations when building your home for the future?

  • Layout - Many young families want an open home while still having privacy where it matters. The layout of your home will be a big consideration when thinking about the future.
  • Materials - Trends come and go. Materials are something that should be considered on whether or not they will be timeless or trendy for a few seasons.
  • Accommodations - One thing to consider is how many people you plan on accommodating. Do you enjoy having people over? You will need to think about space and opt-in for an open concept or a finished basement.

2. Decrease energy costs

Wisconsin summers are hot and humid, while winters are freezing. You want a home that is insulated and energy-efficient in all seasons of Northeastern Wisconsin. Older homes might not have all the modern, updated efficient fixtures which can get pricey quickly. 

3. Build in the neighborhood you want

You might have found the perfect home, but it’s not in the neighborhood or school district you were hoping for. There is a lot of power when having the opportunity to build exactly where you want to live. If you're still searching for the right lot to build on, we can help! Take a look at our available lots to see if one is right for you (some listed below). 

4. Maintenance costs are lower

Older homes come with many hidden costs such as maintenance costs. We don’t always know when a certain appliance has been installed, when the roof was last worked on, or other regular home maintenance items on the checklist. Building your own home offers the advantage of knowing everything about your home and having everything be brand new.

5. Choose who builds your home

You want to know whoever crafts your home has the experience and doesn’t cut corners. By having the ability to choose who builds your custom home in Northeast Wisconsin, you have peace of mind knowing that your home will fit your standards and hold its value for years to come.
