Top 5 advantages of custom build homes

Custom build is a standalone form of self-building and a more ‘hands-off’ approach, where you can purchase a plot of land from a developer which already has provisions in place to build your new home. It’s important to choose a home building route that’s right for you, so here we explore the advantages of custom build.

1. Plot finding

For some self-builders, finding a plot in a location they love requires a lot of time and patience. Most custom build sites will have a range of plots available that vary in size to suit your exact needs.

2. Bespoke design

3. Planning permission

When you purchase a plot on a custom build site, the developer will usually have secured outline or full planning permission for your home; saving you time and driving your home building plans forwards.
