February Newsletter – New Custom Homes

We hope that you all are doing well and staying safe. This February, we are here with our Newsletter on New Custom Homes to help you get started on your custom home project. One of the many reasons one should plan a custom home is designing a home that suits your needs and budget!

Build Your Dream Custom Home with Design Everest!

Understanding the Concept

A custom home is designed for homeowners who want an upper hand in the design layout and the budget. It is a flexible setup where the design is done from scratch and entirely based on your unique specifications, concepts, and geography.

The first step for building a custom home is to get a piece of land where you want to build your home. Then you would have to connect with Surveyors and Geotechnical Engineers to help you with a survey and a soil report. Once you have these we can help you start with Architectural planning.

Design Your Custom Home from Scratch

Getting Started

At Design Everest, we believe that now is the best time to start planning a custom home, and here’s why:

  • The best time to start with Architecture and Engineering plans to get the permits in summer and start building!
  • Feasibility Study – It is wise to start with a Feasibility Study when you start a big project. This study can help you answer the questions like “What is the maximum size of the house that I can build?”; “What are minimum setbacks?”; “Can I build a two-story or three-story house?” and all others. We will explain all our findings via a video call.
  • We can start right away! There is no lead time.
  • Construction Administration (CA) – Our dedicated CA team helps answer all your and your general contractor’s queries

Why Custom Home? 

  • A home that fits your needs
  • Predictable cost of maintenance and energy expenses
  • Scope for future remodeling, renovation and expansion
  • Preferred location
  • Seeing your dream come to life

Let’s Talk Budget

Contrary to popular belief, a custom home is not always unaffordable. It can be designed on different budgets. The first step in planning a custom-home is to chalk out a budget keeping the needs and desires into consideration.
