As the decade comes to an end, we reflect on our work for the past 10 years. We are truly grateful for every custom home we have had the opportunity to build, and the families we built the homes for. From the beginning of the design process, to the final inspection prior to move in, we are part of every step creating and building our customers unique, custom home. If you are thinking about building your very own custom home, now is the time to do it. Start the New Year with a clean slate and turn your dream home into a reality with the help of our experts at Colby Construction. 

While taking the steps to build your own home may seem intimidating, with our knowledgeable team and combined years of experience helping clients to design and build a brand-new custom home is an exciting process. With the New Year and new decade quickly approaching, now is the time to start planning your new home and create a place that is perfect for you and your family. 

Some common questions clients have when beginning the process to build a custom home include: 

Why should I build a custom home? Would be easier to just buy a home that is already built? 

At first glance, purchasing a home that is already built may seem like the easier option, but there is no greater satisfaction than seeing a home that you designed turn into reality. You will be involved in every detail of building your home from the architecture of the outside, to the finishes, flooring, and hardware of the interior. Building your own home gives you the creative freedom to get a space that will cater to every one of you and your family’s needs. When choosing to build a custom lake home, there are many other factors that play into this as well. Colby Construction is the premier lake home builder in southeastern Wisconsin, and they can help navigate the conservation and county restrictions.  

Aside from the creative freedom, finding a custom lake house can be a tiresome process that doesn’t always result in achieving your dream home. There are certain expectations you may have about the home you want, budget restrictions, and even location requirements. It will be a challenge to find the perfect home in the right area with all the tiny details that you dream of. 

Will it be more expensive to build my home versus buying a home on the market? 

Finding a home on the market, whether a lake home or a home in a subdivision can become more expensive if you have to spend a great deal of money to make it perfect for you and your family. When you get to select what you want from the beginning, you will select exactly what you want from the beginning. We will also guide you to make selections that are quality, timeless styles so your home will still be beautiful when the next decade begins. 

What makes a custom home “custom”? 

Consumers often call production built homes, “cookie cutter houses” and other similar terms related to the design being duplicated multiple times. When you build a home with Colby Construction, you will work with an architect and design team to create a home that is truly one-of-a-kind. As the project manager of your home, you will be able to determine room sizes, types of fixtures, layout, and all the other details throughout the building process. We will assist you throughout the journey of designing your very own custom home that will be a quality built, timeless, custom dream home. 

As a luxury custom home builder and one of Wisconsin’s premier Lake Country builders, Colby Construction homes are the result of passion and detailed custom design. Our philosophy is simple. You come first. Therefore, every Colby Construction home is unique and timeless, custom built to fit the personality and needs of each client. It is seamlessly orchestrated by a team of three; you, the client, the architect and Colby Construction.
