What Does Custom Builder Mean?

As you start your search for a custom home builder in Jacksonville FL, there may be some confusion. Are you looking for a production builder that tends to offer fewer options, focusing on mass builds or are you looking for more extensive custom options. You’re more likely to be looking for a custom builder, but even then there are misconceptions as to who is a “true” or “full” custom builder or a semi-custom builder. Here are some tips to help you determine the kind of new home builder who will meet your needs. Though if you’re searching in the Jacksonville area, there’s a good chance that Glenn Layton Homes can meet all of your needs.

If you’re searching for a new home that you can customize, but don’t necessarily want to be involved in the entire design process from the ground up, a semi-custom builder is likely to be your best choice. These new home builders typically offer a variety of home plans already designed from which the buyer can choose. While the basic “bones” of these homes are already established, they often include some design option elements that can be changed, such as bathroom layouts, fireplace inclusions, recreation rooms, or additional bedrooms. You’ll also get to choose colors, floors, and finishes.

On the other hand, if you want to be involved in the design of your home from the ground up, you want a full custom builder. This is someone who works closely with the customer to take their ideas and put them onto paper — or onto the computer — designing one-of-a-kind homes that reflect the owner’s personality in every detail. From the initial planning and sketching to actually turning the design into a fully functioning home, a full custom builder will work with the client every step of the way.

Glenn Layton Homes calls this the Design + Build process, taking your visions of your dream home and building them into reality. They work from scratch with the customer who wants a truly unique home, but they do have a variety of home plans available for those who want a semi-custom build. Of course, even those going for a full custom build often gain inspiration from elements of these existing home designs.

Whether you’re looking for a beautifully built home in a thoughtfully designed exclusive neighborhood or you want to build your dream home on your own lot of land, Glenn Layton Homes provides the full range of design and building skills to make your new home a reality. So if you’re looking for a custom home builder in Jacksonville FL, whether it’s semi-custom or full-custom, you’ll always be satisfied when you choose the highly respected Glenn Layton Homes.
