Many homeowners dream of one day crafting a home which perfectly meets their every want and need. Some want a kitchen worthy of the world’s finest chef; others may desire the bedroom of their dreams. For families living with grandparents in the home, or for those serving as caretakers for a family member, a custom home may offer much-needed accessibility and safety.
Regardless of your project’s purpose, building a custom home is an exciting and challenging process. Kobza Home Builders works with our clients to ensure that the home of their dreams becomes a reality, despite the challenges along the way.
Our Custom Home Building Process
Custom home development typically fits into four stages:
- Finding Land
- Evaluating the Land
- Developing the Home Plan
- Designing the Home
Step 1: Finding Land
To start finding land for a custom home build, one of the easiest options is to turn to the Internet. Within the palm of your hand you will have access to a majority of the listings available in your desired construction region.
Our recommendation is that you reach out to a real estate broker who specializes in custom home builds. While most real estate brokers will be willing to help you find the land, reaching out to a custom home specialist will bring a seasoned eye to your land purchasing decision. This is one of the most important steps in the process – as always in real estate, the name of the game is ‘location, location, location.’
Step 2: Evaluating the Land
Once you have purchased the land for your custom home, the next step is to evaluate the variables that contribute to your custom home project and how they impact the property.

A home builder who is local to your property’s region will know the nuances of local laws and what impacts to expect. It is important to begin working with your professional custom home builder at this stage to ensure a smooth construction process later on.
Step 3: Developing the Home Plan
This step is where many people like to begin – what could be more exciting than imagining your new floor plan? (Imagining the design, probably.)
Once you have an idea how you want to lay out your floor plan, this is an ideal time to sit down with your custom home builder and work with them to get the plans on paper.
Step 4: Designing the Home
With the land purchased and evaluated, and with plans in place for the home layout, it is finally time to begin design and construction of your new custom home. This will likely be the most time-consuming step, but as long as the construction has been thoroughly planned and properly permitted, you should soon start to see your dream home take shape. Your home builder will work with you to design the features and styles within the home, and bring their trusted crew and contractors in to deliver the job.
