Why Building A Custom Home is Worth it

Embarking on the journey of a new home is an exciting endeavor, and the first crucial decision is usually whether or not you want to opt for an existing home, or purchase a vacant lot and build a custom home. If you’re thinking about building a custom home in St. Tammany Parish, Money Hill has a beautiful selection of homesites with golf course, lake and woodland views. 

In this blog post, we’re delving into the reasons that make building a custom home an investment in unparalleled living. After all, your home should be the most special place in your life.

Make it your own

The number one reason people build custom homes is so that they can make their home their own. Building your own home means you can customize everything! From tailoring a floor plan that aligns with your lifestyle to handpicking appliances, selecting cabinet colors, and curating amenities, the canvas is yours to paint with a custom home. Whether you’re a home chef who needs kitchen counter space, or you work from home and need an office with built-in shelves, the possibilities are endless. 

A custom home is a good investment

Building a custom home often translates to fewer immediate upgrade or repair needs, offering a respite from unforeseen expenses during the initial years of homeownership. Plus, building your own home means you can take action to make it more energy efficient than an existing home is likely to be. Not only is that good for the environment, but also for your wallet.

If you already have a builder in mind for your home, that is a great option as well.

More land

Unlike the often confined lots found in subdivisions and neighborhoods, custom-built homes offer the luxury of choice when it comes to land and space. At Money Hill, there are more than 5,500 acres, so you won’t be limited on space. Whether you envision expansive gardens, space for your children and pets to roam freely, or construction of a pool, a custom home on one of our vacant lots empowers you to determine the amount of land you truly need.

Location is paramount in the home-buying decision, but compromises are often made between ideal location and the desired style of a home.

Money Hill is the ideal location for those who are seeking an active lifestyle of relaxed sophistication. Our luxury community is conveniently located within minutes to Downtown Covington and Abita Springs, and in close proximity to the top public and private schools in the state. 

In conclusion, choosing to build a custom home isn’t merely a housing decision; it’s a commitment to a lifestyle curated to meet your every desire. Beyond the bricks and mortar, it’s an investment in your life.
