Exterior Considerations for Custom Homes

Exterior Considerations for Custom Homes

Customizing the exterior elements of your home is an engaging process!

The inside of a custom home is essential to what it means to be your home, but the exterior matters just as much. There are multiple elements to the exterior of your home, and when you are designing and building a custom home, you will need to go through the process of determining all of these elements with your custom home designer. Below are the exterior considerations of a custom home.

The Land

Naturally, the land on which your house sits will be one factor of your home’s exterior. You will want to consider how much and what type of land to choose. Some people prefer to live on at least several acres, while others are content with less. You might also prefer a level plain rather than a slope, or you might not mind the slanting ground. How you plan to use your outdoor spaces will help you with your decision.

The Landscaping

Your custom home building crew will grade the land so that it drains rainwater and snow away from the house. It will also involve planting trees, garden beds, and outdoor living features like a patio or a deck. Landscaping will give your property some greenery and beauty no matter what time of year it is, while outdoor living spaces give you a place to enjoy it.

The Driveway

Exterior considerations for custom homes include the driveway. Driveways can have different layouts, such as curving, straight, or circular. There are also various materials for driveways, like asphalt, concrete, gravel, brick, and stone. 

The Facade

Your home’s facade will be influenced by the house plan you choose, although Viking Custom Homes is flexible when it comes to designing your custom home. The facade can take on different complementary materials, such as siding plus stone or brick. One can choose between various colors that will give your home a look of its own.

The Entryway

The entryway is the jewel of your home’s exterior. If you see a beautiful front entryway in a magazine, we can build it. Whether you prefer a simple design, elegant ornamentation, or one-of-a-kind customization, Viking Custom Homes is happy to welcome you and your guests in style.
