5 Reasons to Build your Own Home
While most people are happy to invest in a used home and make the best of it, this is not the ideal scenario. Designing your living space is not the exclusive field for millionaires and in this article, we offer a few very good reasons for a new build rather than buying an existing house.
Complement your lifestyle – Simply put, a custom-built house (called แบบบ้านสร้างเอง in Thai) is designed around you and your lifestyle and that means not having to make the best of what you have. If you have a couple of big dogs, for example, you can incorporate an outdoor area for bathing and grooming and if you are planning a home office, you can incorporate a separate structure within the property.
- Quality Assurance – When you enlist the help of an experienced custom builder, you can be sure that your investment is of the highest quality, as you choose the materials. The first thing to do is find the right plot of land; either vacant or with an existing structure, then you can make contact with a leading custom builder. By looking at their many design templates, you can find a layout that works for you and with a few additions and amendments, the perfect living space awaits!
- Energy Efficient – We have made a lot of progress with thermal insulation and a new build would have excellent insulation properties. If you are going to build a house today, you really should install a state-of-the-art solar energy system and prices have never been lower. You have a choice of a solar energy system that does not require the national grid, or you can use a combination of solar energy and the national grid.
- Healthy Return on your Investment – As you would expect, a new house would be worth a lot more than an old property and if you purchase the land and commission a custom builder, your dream home will be a very good long-term investment.
- Knock Down & Rebuild – If, for example, you have been left a property as an inheritance, rather than renovating, you could demolish the old house and build your dream home. There are specialist custom builders who can handle every aspect of such a project, from the demolishing right through to the final hand over.
If you have found the right plot of land for your dream home, search online for a leading custom builder and take a look at the many design templates and you can tailor your living space to suit your lifestyle.
