Custom Homes

Building custom homes makes it possible for homeowners to get the home of their dreams without sacrificing any detail.

A home should be your sanctuary and the place where you feel most at ease. While many neighborhoods feature cookie-cutter homes, these properties do not meet the needs of the occupants as well as custom homes. No matter if you plan on staying in a home for five years or for a lifetime, it should be a reflection of your unique tastes and built to suit your lifestyle.

The William E. Carter Company has a reputation for creating unparalleled home designs that truly exceed your expectations. We guide our clients through every step of the process, making it simple to transform your ideas into something both tangible and beautiful. When you let us take the reins, you can rest assured your home will be an accurate representation of your style and a sanctuary for and your family. Let’s do it once and do it right.

What Is a Custom Home?

Homebuilders are everywhere, but only a few offer a fully customizable option. In most cases, you’ll get a pamphlet with several floor plans and settle for a satisfactory model. What you end up with may suit some of your needs and desires, but those plans won’t check off every box on your list.

When you work with a custom home builder, on the other hand, you have the opportunity to design the home of your dreams. An accomplished builder leaves nothing to chance. You can choose the placement of every door, window, wall, and corner in your home. The builder will guide your decisions, ensuring the final masterpiece not only looks beautiful but is also structurally sound.

At the William E. Carter Company, we let the homeowner take the wheel during the design process. We act as your mentor, helping you decide on key elements, but in the end, you end up with a unique design that suits your tastes. Whether you want a contemporary home with minimal fussiness or an opulent home with all the elegant finishing touches, the sky is the limit. Every client has a different vision, and we know how to make your dreams a reality. When you work one-on-one with a builder, you never have to settle. You’ll get everything you want. That’s the true beauty of working with a custom design team.

    The Custom Building Process

    Building a one-of-a-kind home is entirely different from shopping from a set of approved floor plans. For the majority of cookie-cutter builds, homeowners select only a few designated modifications or basic upgrades before the builder gets to work. However, when you design an exclusive home from start to finish, the process is much more complex, personalized, and gratifying.

    Before any construction can begin, our expert team will sit down with you to learn what you envision in a home. All decision-makers should be present during these crucial meetings to ensure everyone is on the same page. We will discuss your needs, lifestyle, and preferences. No two families are alike, and we take the time to get to know you on a very personal level. After all, we want your home to be the perfect match for your family.

    During the design process, you lead the way. We’ll guide you through your options and help you make the best choices for your finished product. Our experts will discuss every aspect of the home, including size, number of rooms, kitchen, bathroom, and garage options. What you choose depends on how you use the space. If you’re a gourmet chef, we can make sure your kitchen has all the bells and whistles. If you work a strenuous, taxing job, we can help you design a master bedroom and bathroom oasis. It’s all up to you.

    We’re also upfront and honest with you when it comes to the budget. Let us know how much you want to spend, and we’ll stay within those parameters. Before we bid on a project, we always recommend getting the full specs first. If we do the design, we can guarantee our price.

    Why Choose a Custom Builder?

    Life is busy, and building a home takes a lot of time. Our team of professionals will help you manage the decision-making process as we help you design your home. Conservatively speaking, that can include between 2,500-3,000 decisions.

    Here is a sampling of the choices you’ll get to make:

    • Hardware
    • Door swings
    • Appliances
    • Tile
    • Flooring
    • Electrical
    • Water
    • Solar

    Additionally, a new home build requires dealing with the municipalities to get file applications and obtain permits as well as scheduling inspections to ensure everything is up to code. We do all of this for you. We also ensure fire compliance, waste management, and manage all of the fees associated with the build process. We work behind-the-scenes to make sure everything goes as planned. Our skilled team will work to make sure you never feel overwhelmed. Leave all the nuances to us.

    Besides meeting with us to go over the design or approve specific options, you won’t have to lift a finger. Our team does most of the production in-house, and we only hire the very best, most experienced subcontractors.
