Benefits of Custom-Built Homes
Custom built homes are ones that you design and have built to your specifications and needs. For some, buying an already existing home is fine because it suits their needs.

“Once you have determined the general direction, pick a few you like,” Redd says—this being the point at which you should go to those crazy-colorful paint chip aisles and settle on a number of buckets from various brands in the general vicinity of what you’re looking for. More is often better here; designer Casey Kenyon started with eight samples when trying to find the perfect “putty” color for his walls, and says it was well worth the cost of getting that many tins. “To choose the right color is about narrowing it down,” he says, “Sample and resample and resample.” Read more at Architectural Digest…
