The aspiration to design your own home is one that is shared by many. Many people dream of choosing a layout that would make their home life easier, but the work that goes into a self-build project can be a barrier – this is where our Custom Build New Homes come in.
Blending the flexibility of a Self-Build home with the convenience of a new build, this exciting new concept in British housing has the potential to revolutionise the market.
Here are 10 things you might not have known about the housing phenomenon that is custom build homes:
Introducing design flexibility:
Graven Hill Custom Build New Homes give you the opportunity to customise the internal layouts and finishes within your property, allowing you to create a home that suits you. Your home is where you spend the majority of your life, so why not have one that reflects your family’s personality and style? Express yourself through the rooms you design, whether that be incorporating a large kitchen diner to entertain guests or a luxurious bathroom if bubble baths help you unwind.
First time buyer? No problem:
The world of customised homes may at first seem out of reach for those looking to purchase their first property. However, Graven Hill’s custom build homes are eligible for the Government’s Help to Buy scheme, making them even more affordable. Find out more about the scheme and take a look at some examples here.
Focusing on family:
There is no denying the fact that children take up a lot of room! However, our custom build homes allow you to tweak designs and create extra storage for toys, clothes and everything else your young family needs. Why not add in a playroom to stop the whole house becoming one? Or maybe a utility room to store the pushchair and muddy shoes?
Planning for the future:
Getting older is inevitable so why not prepare your home? A Custom Build New Home lets you widen door frames, lower light switches and even fit downstairs wet rooms, whilst keeping stylish living top of mind. These soft changes are now more accessible than ever, enabling owners to stay in their home for as long as possible and giving the term future-proofing a whole new definition. Furthermore, many of our Custom Build New Homes are designed with no internal load bearing walls – this means you can change the layout as your requirements change.
Personalisation without the major time investment:
The sooner you get involved in the planning and building process, the more choices you have. No stress for you, just a move-in-ready home. Your house will be built to your specifications, but, unlike a self-build, you won’t need to build it yourself.
Finished before you know it:
You can have your unique home without a lengthy wait. In fact, you can purchase from Graven Hill now and it will be complete by August 2019, with many plots available to move into this spring! Take a look at some of our available plots here.
Keeping it green:
Graven Hill homes can be built, tested and certified to Passivhaus standards. Meaning your home would use very little energy for heating and cooling due to reduced heat loss. Passive heat sources such as the sun and occupants are used to keep the house warm, helping you to reduce the energy footprint of your home.
Embrace our community spirit:
You don’t have to be isolated to have your own custom-built home. At Graven Hill, you will become part of a community of like-minded people. Why not listen to Sanjeev and Dheeraj who made the move to Graven Hill with a group of friends from Slough. As we continue to grow, the community will also benefit from local shops, a pub and even a school, giving the phrase ‘having everything on your doorstep’ a whole new meaning.
