Does your New Years Resolution include a custom home or home remodel?
3 Popular Features You May Want to Include In Your Design
If you’ve considered building a custom dream home or remodeling your current home, make it your New Years resolution to stop procrastinating and make your dream a reality
Perhaps you’ve always wanted to live in an elegant custom home near downtown or you want you and your family to live in a smart home with all the conveniences to make daily life easier. Or you may be starting a new chapter in your life and want to live in a new community that is more in-line with your tastes and desired lifestyle. Whatever your motivation, 2019 is the right time to pursue your goal of custom home ownership.
Building your own custom home can seem like a daunting and scary task. There’s a lot of decisions to make and you may have to sell your current home before completing the build of your custom home. Luckily, Ilcor Builders has over 60 years of experience building custom homes. The Ilcor Builders team will help you every step of the way; from helping you customize a floorplan and select finishes, to assisting in getting financing and even helping you sell your existing home.
Over the past 60 years Ilcor Builders has built hundreds of custom homes in Austin and surrounding areas, and in the last few years we’ve noticed some features becoming more popular:
Smart design doesn’t just mean having lights that turn on for you, a fridge that makes your grocery list for you, and a having a home digital assistant (those are nice too). Smart design also includes using materials that are natural thermal barriers—helping to keep your house cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Smart design includes hot water heaters, washers, dryers, and dishwasher that use a fraction of the energy and water. Smart design includes pitched, naturally cooling roofing, radiant barrier and hurricane proof windows and garage doors, and much more. A smartly designed custom home can help ensure that you and your family are comfortable and connected.
Some of our customers have preferred a smaller home that’s easier to maintain, and some customers have preferred a large home that’s ideal for entertaining. Whatever size home our customers prefer, the storage desired is always ample. Extra and convenient storage for winter clothes, holiday decorations, summer lawn equipment, tools, books and knickknacks, and dry food storage have been gaining popularity. Ample storage saves you time, money, and energy. Give yourself peace of mind and convenience of having all your things close by electing for plenty of storage in your custom home.
Of course, everyone upgrades their kitchen into a chef kitchen and upgrades their master bath into a spa-like oasis, but what is gaining popularity is having a mud room or in-between room. A mudroom is separate from your grand entryway or foyer. It’s a more casual, secondary entryway that is used to store wet outwear and footwear as well as storage for sporting equipment. This in-between room can greatly add to the cleanliness of your home while adding convenience. Your mudroom can contain your bicycles, umbrellas, lawn furniture, outdoor toys, and cold weather coats and boots, while giving you a convenient place to sit down while taking off your shoes. Your mudroom can also double as a laundry room and can be a convenient place for kids to store backpacks and other school necessities. Add a mudroom to your home for the convenience and help keep your custom home clean.
