News from David James Homes
You have a lot of decisions to make when building a new home. First, and possibly most basically, you’ll need to start by deciding between a single-level home and one with multiple stories. How can you decide what’s right for you?
Here are the pros and cons of both options to help you find the perfect match.
Privacy and Noise
Both types of houses have pluses and minuses when it comes to privacy and noise. If you live in a busy neighborhood or are on a major road, a two-story layout provides more privacy for bedrooms and family spaces that are on the second floor. Two-story homes also increase interior privacy too. With everyone spending time on a single level, families in a tight floor plan might find that they are always in each other’s way.
When you build a custom home, the biggest benefit is that you are completely in control of the overall design and the construction process. This means that you can truly create the home of your dreams. Even if it means adding in extreme rooms or rooms that cater just to your interests, you have the option to do it with a custom home.
So with that in mind, here are some fun ideas for unique rooms you can add to your custom home.
A Home Movie Theater
One great option you can add to your home is a home theater. This room is a perfect addition for any movie lover.
When you plan a custom home, you have a wide array of choices. Sometimes, though, all the choices can feel overwhelming. Many of these choices come as you plan your kitchen. You may know how you want it to look and feel, but the most useful upgrades may not immediately present themselves.
The following kitchen upgrades are aesthetic or utilitarian upgrades that are worth the cost.
It is obvious why the James David B is one of the most popular floor plans available from David James Homes. Besides its handsome Cape Cod appearance with large porch and stone accents on the exterior, the home packs so much living space into 2,332 square feet.
One of the more prominent features is the first-floor master bedroom. The master bedroom features a trey ceiling, a separate sitting area, as well as a 42 -inch shower, a 5-foot soaking tub with ceramic surround, a double bowl vanity and a walk-in closet. Two well-sized bedrooms with a convenient full bath also exist on the first floor of the home.
Building the custom home of your dreams starts with finding the right piece of land to put it on. However, with a variety of choices available, how can you know you’ve chosen the right lot? This guide lists three steps you can use to make sure you’ve chosen the right lot.
1. Identify Your Needs
If you end up disliking the location of your new house, then getting a good price on vacant land isn’t going matter to you as much. Start by understanding what you need from your home’s location. You should consider a few things as you make your decision.
The Anna Elizabeth B takes advantage of its 2,815-square -foot, four bedroom, two and one half bath, two-story floor plan.
