For those looking for a new home, a custom home built by high-level professionals at Cedar Creek is often a great option. A custom home allows you more control over many of the specifics of your living situation moving forward, and our builders have years of experience helping you get exactly what you want in a new home.
One of the primary questions we get from our clients: How long will my custom home take to build? There is no set response here – the answer depends on several important factors, which we’ll look at here.
Many of the factors that go into the length of time it will take to build your home are relatively simple. These include areas like the size and complexity of the home being built, the area it’s being built in, and the time of year construction is beginning in.
In most cases, custom homes take between eight and 16 months to build if everything goes according to plan, and if the lot is clear to build on from the start. In some cases, weather conditions could have a significant effect on the timeline.
You may not realize it, but one of the biggest variables in custom home build times is the customer themselves. Customers have to make a lot of decisions during this process, and builders might lose days or even weeks if these decisions aren’t made in a timely manner. Any change orders generally increase the building time, especially if they’re made later in the building process when many structures are already in place.
Design and Purchase Plans
On top of the time it takes to build a home, consider the time it will take to design and modify any purchase plans. Remember that these plans have to be approved by local building departments, and for designs that include a specific architect, this process can take months. There are also often permits to consider, which should be done in advance.
