Building a custom home can be intimidating and overwhelming. Here at Holland Homes, we have a unique process involving four steps to ensure a positive experience while building a custom home. The first step is to develop the buyer’s dream - where the dream is turned into reality. The second step is the design of the home - focusing on both interior design and exterior design. The third step is the actual building process - the ability to see a new home “come to life”. The fourth, and final step, is a year-long service from Holland Homes - assistance in home touch-ups. Although each and every step is crucial, the most important aspect of this process is figuring out which custom home design is right for you. The key word is ‘custom’ - meaning the buyer can be specific in the details of the home and are able to design it exactly as they want. There are many different options and details to consider when designing a custom home. We want to provide our clients with some ideas to consider as they design the custom home that is exactly what they want.
