What to Consider When Building Your Custom Home

As a custom home builder in Ponte Vedra FL we want your experience to be positive through every step to make your dream coastal home a reality. We stay up to date with the latest building and design trends to create a home that is comfortable, convenient, efficient, and personalized to best fit your lifestyle. The following are some of the new and ongoing trends to consider when you meet with us to start creating your own custom coastal home.

Open floor plans continue to dominate custom home designs, emphasizing spaciousness and fluidity between living spaces. The reason this style remains so popular is it allows for connectivity, glorious natural light, and it creates an inviting environment, whether it’s just the family at home or entertaining.

One feature of our custom homes that you’ll always find is the attention to creating indoor/outdoor living. We design homes that transition smoothly from indoor living areas to covered back patios, pergolas, and more. Make the most of the long outdoor season, along with cross breezes, to expand your living and entertaining space. Increasingly, you’ll find that outdoor spaces begin to mirror the indoors with well-designed and comfortable outdoor living areas that often include outdoor kitchens, fire pits, lounging areas, as well as swimming pools, thoughtfully landscaped yards with local flora, and an overall sense of relaxation and connection with nature.

Since we built the HGTV 2013 Smart Home, we have continued to explore and expand our integration of smart home technology into all of our homes. Many of these features are now standard, but we also keep up to date to meet your specific needs and preferences. Among the many options now available are home automation systems that control lighting, security, temperature, and entertainment. Not only do they offer convenience, they provide energy efficiency, enhanced security, and so much more.

Homeowners are seeking greater customization and personalization options to reflect their unique lifestyles and preferences. Custom homes offer flexibility in design, allowing individuals to tailor floor plans, finishes, and amenities to suit their specific needs and tastes. Plus, with our knowledge and love of historical coastal architecture, we can help you build unique homes that feel like they’re a part of the local environment.

Finally, custom homes are accommodating the needs of everyone from individuals to extended families. The owner’s suite on the main floor is an increasingly popular feature that serves a variety of needs and preferences, ranging from accessibility to privacy. Today’s custom home designs may incorporate separate living quarters for multi-generational living, and typically feature flexible spaces that can adapt to changing family dynamics over time.

As a respected custom home builder in Ponte Vedra FL we work with you right from the start to build custom coastal homes that cater specifically to your lifestyle, priorities, and personal preferences. Contact us today to make your custom home a dream come true.
