Construction Services Described
In the attempt to define what we do, I realized how vague construction terms are. Even after a glance at a dictionary I realized that it may be better for me to define how these terms apply to the various types of construction services we provide.
Custom Homes : A custom home is one that is especially designed to meet the specifications of the client and for a particular location. The custom home builder may use plans created by an architect or by a professional home designer. Custom homes afford consumers the opportunity to control layout, lot size, accessibility, and final cost. Stock building plans are not custom designed; yet the plan may be customized to fit your needs.
Spec Home : A spec house is one built on a speculative basis. In most cases when one is built in a neighborhood, there will be many of the same houses built throughout the neighborhood. Commonly, a buyer will be unsatisfied with this type of house because it was not built or customized to their tastes.
Home Remodel : To add to, expand, change or alter the form, style or structure of a home increasing the value, efficiency and possibly size.
Home Improvement : The act or process of improving a home by replacing or repairing in part or in whole something that enhances the value or increases the efficiency of the home.
Home Renovation : To reconstruct or rebuild to a former, better state without the concern of incorporating new and better materials to return to an original or former condition.
Home Restoration : Reconstruct to a former better state by repairing, or rebuilding. To return to an original or former condition being careful to exactly replicate the material and construction practices used during the time of when the structure was built.
Outdoor Living : The transformation of your yard into a unique outdoor living environment by uniting the convenience of the indoors with the natural beauty of the outdoors.
It is often stated that remodeling & improvement and renovation & restoration are one in the same respectively. I do agree that there are some similarities amongst all of them but I feel there are many differences. Any remodeling project will be an improvement to your home but an improvement to your home will not necessarily require an alteration. The only way to complete a restoration project is to reconstruct to a former state using materials that are or closely match the original era while a renovation project is more accepting of the substitution of original items for more modern materials.
Every project we receive is considered custom, no two projects are the same.They are as different as the individuals who are seeking to have them completed. We count it a priviledge that you would even consider us to complete your project, at Creative Design Homes we handle each project carefully to ensure it is designed to meet your budget and created to exceed your expectations.
