Most builders’ focus on building new homes, so renovating is typically a part-time activity for such tradespeople. The processes and services required for renovations are quite specific and, once plans are signed off, building a new home is relatively predictable. Renovations usually require all of the sub-trades that are needed for the construction of a new building. During renovation projects, flexibility is often required from renovation companies to respond to unexpected issues that arise.
Projects involving renovation require not just flexibility, but a plan that has previously been agreed upon by multiple parties. The planning process will involve feedback from financial investors of the project, as well as the designer. Part of planning will also entail the collection of any necessary data for the completion of the project and then the project plan will be revised and given consent before continuing with renovations.
In many projects, custom homebuilders build on top of land that is already purchased by the future homeowner. Many developers sell lots that are sold specifically for the construction of a custom home. The event of buying land and then making it ready to build upon makes it easy to build a custom home since the builders can focus purely on the design of the home.
