Before You Build - Ask Yourself: Does My Fort Myers, Florida Home Builder Meet These Standards
By Harden Custom Homes 08 Jan 2020

Owning a beautiful home that is comfortable to live in has long been the American dream. Building that home custom is ideal because the designer forms the space around the way you live and who you are. It becomes an extension of you.

The catch to this fantasy is that building a home takes time, money, and faith. Faith in the builder you choose to deliver as promised and come through with the realization of the concept you created together.

Choosing your home builder isn't a decision anyone should take lightly. 

Harden Custom Homes is a Southwest Florida custom home building company that is based in Fort Myers, Florida. We pride ourselves on having put together a dedicated team of individuals who are well versed in every step of the building process. In the end, most homeowners will go with the builder whom they feel the most comfortable with.

There are some qualities that need to be taken into consideration when making a final decision.

Experience in Architecture - An amazing custom home can only be created by a solid team that knows how to build from the ground up, not simply from existing layouts. The concept behind a custom home is that it is one-of-a-kind, so any quality home builder should be able to take your ideas and specifications and make them a reality.

Design Experience -  A custom home is much more than the foundation and structure. It encompasses all the beautiful details: paint, flooring, lighting, and appliances. A great custom builder possesses the skill to make your new home both aesthetically pleasing and functional.

Skilled Construction -  Your building team should have proven construction skills to back them up. Building a home from a blueprint is a complicated process. Should there be changes along the way your team needs to be able to adapt and come through still meeting deadlines.

Business Management Skills -  When it comes to home building staying on schedule and at or under budget is vital. You are counting on them to produce the home of your dreams at the price you agreed on and you likely need to be able to move in on or around the set date laid out at the inception of the construction in order for your life to run smoothly. A beautiful home is no good if you can't actually move into it.

Before choosing your custom home building company it's smart to conduct a thorough interview with all potential builders, speak with their current or past clients, and, if possible, check out completed examples of their work.
