Welcome to White Oak Construction!

5 Things to Consider when Building a Custom Home:

1. Financing

  • When do I begin making payments?

  • Do I have to have cash to begin? If so, how much?


2. Real Estate

  • Can I build within an established subdivision/neighborhood.

  • Can I build on property I already own?

  • Does the builder have land available?


3. Time frame

  • How long does custom home building take?


4. Advantages of Custom Home Building:

  • Customized Options: Building your own custom home is all about the power of making choices. You have the freedom to select everything you want in your home, including appliances, wall and floor coverings, trim, custom cabinetry and amenities.

  • Functionality: Your custom home is designed entirely around you, including your floor plan. Rather than working around a pre-existing home’s floor plan, or having limited options with a semi-custom home, your floor plan is being designed to maximize and take advantage of every inch of usable space.

  • Personal Expression: Your custom-built home is a direct reflection of your style, taste, and personality. By working with an architect and interior designer you’ll have the opportunity to create a home that literally will be the “home of your dreams.”

  • Material Quality: When you buy a pre-existing home or a semi-custom home, you don’t have much control over the quality of materials being utilized. The grade of materials varies from room to room and includes prefabricated lower-quality materials. A good custom builder works with trusted tradesmen who provide high-quality work and materials. With a custom-built home you know it is constructed with the best products, materials, and brands.


5. General

  • How do I determine what square footage I need/want?

  • How "custom" is custom?
