Whole-Home Remodeling vs. Custom Homes

Deciding whether to remodel your home or build a custom space isn’t as simple as it sounds. From structure and budget considerations to zoning and location concerns, there’s more to making your dream home a reality than meets the eye.

Whether you’re seeking to relocate to an upscale neighborhood or want your current home gutted and remodeled, the expert team at Craftbuilt can create a luxurious living space to last a lifetime. Before calling our team to begin your remodeling or custom build project, be sure to review the pros and cons of each below.

Remodeling Your Atlanta Home

A whole-home remodel is a serious project that involves gutting your current living space to recreate it in your vision. If you own a home in historic Old Fourth Ward or Virginia-Highland, you can uphold its structural integrity while integrating modern upgrades for a truly unique and sophisticated design. Keep the elegant curb appeal of your colonial revival or antebellum mansion while enjoying the modern day luxuries of a 21st century home. Consider these updates for your whole-home remodeling project:

  • Bathroom Remodeling: Make your bathroom an extension of your home’s splendor with upgraded fixtures, premium tiling, ample lighting, and much more.
  • Kitchen Remodeling: Complete your kitchen with custom cabinetry, updated appliances, and exquisite countertops.
  • Floor Plan Reconfiguration: Give your feng shui a much-needed renovation by removing walls and redesigning the layout of your house.
  • Home Addition: Add an extra bathroom, guest bedroom, or expand upon an existing room by building an addition.

While remodeling your home can be a great option, there are some downfalls to such an undertaking. Your home’s current structure, for instance, may not be able to support a floor plan reconfiguration depending on how it was built. Important plumbing and electrical wires may prevent you from achieving the desired aesthetic. Consult with the Craftbuilt team about your vision during our design/build process to ensure your home’s structure can withstand the transformation you seek.

Custom Built Homes in Atlanta

If your current layout prevents you from achieving “dream home” status, it may be time to consider building a custom house. Custom design gives you the freedom to build a space that’s both unique and exactly what you need. The possibilities for your custom home are endless.

With a custom build, you have the option to demolish your existing home and build on the land or relocate to another neighborhood. However, relocating means finding suitable land on which to build, and this may not always be possible where you were hoping to live.
