How Long Does It Take to Build a Custom Home?

At Sekas Homes, we’ve been building high-end custom homes since 1987, and we’ve expertly handled every home building issue that has come our way.

Factors That Can Alter Your Timeline

Here are the two major factors that can change how long it takes to build a custom home:

  1. Building on your own lot vs. building in a community. This can have a large impact on the timeline because choosing to build on your own lot can be a more time-consuming process. Our prestigious communities have lots that have already been approved and prepared for construction; however, that may not be the case for individual home sites you’re interested in purchasing. Our expert team at Sekas Homes has been helping our clients find individual building sites for nearly three decades, and we’ll put our years of experience to work for you to not only help you find the perfect lot to build your beautiful custom home, but also to do so in a timely manner.
  2. Designing completely custom vs. working from a plan. At Sekas Homes, we have a wide range of award-winning floor plans to choose from, which can be built as-is or custom-altered to suit your specific taste and lifestyle. Additionally, we also offer the option to create a completely custom home design; however, this can add time to the home building process, but any time spent making your dream home perfect is time well spent.

Of course, there are other things, such as weather, building material availability, etc., that can have an impact on your home’s completion, but in general, the two points listed above seem to have the greatest impact.

At Sekas Homes, we’re dedicated to finding the balance between efficiency and detail because we hold ourselves to a high standard, and we believe our homes should reflect that. We will never put efficiency ahead of perfection because we don’t believe in cutting corners. When you choose Sekas Homes to build your custom home, you can rest assured that you will be getting the best of the best.
