A house with a view. It’s one of the dreams of home ownership. And Florida offers an abundance of picturesque settings that many of us would love to see as we look out our windows and step out our front doors.
When you find the perfect location, a custom build brings the dream within reach. In this article, we’ll look at a couple of the major pathways along this journey, including custom floor plans and the first steps of the building process.
Custom floor plans
You envision your waterfront home as a multi-level castle that reaches three or even four stories to the sky and comes with a grand view of the water. It could be overlooking the bay, a bayou, inlet, river, or even the Gulf. Here at LaBram, custom homes are all we do, and we are deeply familiar with what makes a great home on the waterfront. We can help you design your custom floor plan specifically tailored to you and your lifestyle. Relax as you draw inspiration from our custom home portfolio, which includes multi-story homes that exude luxuriousness.
First steps of the building process
If this is your first custom-build, there are a few steps you should be aware of. With LaBram Homes, the building process is carefully planned out and includes:
- A meeting to determine the build options available for your budget, timeline, and vision. We will also discuss the timeframe you can expect it will take to design and build your custom home.
- We walk you through the options for financing your home so you’re equipped to make an informed decision that is right for your budget.
- We’ll determine how to set up your home based on your lot survey. We draft floor plans of your custom home according to your vision, functionality and lifestyle. Then we move on to the elevations. Plan to spend some time designing your custom home because it’s the basis for everything that comes next. And you want everything to be just right.
