7 Reasons To Build a Custom Home

Building a custom home in Baton Rouge, LA, is not just for the rich and famous or the pinnacle of your success. In fact, for those who work hard and want the finest craftsmanship and design built your way, it can be the most satisfying investment of your time and money. Here in this article, we offer seven reasons to create a custom home that we think are essential to consider.


Custom Built Home1. Built Your Way

You have searched and admired many Baton Rouge homes and interior space ideas on Houzz, Pinterest, or perhaps your favorite TV show, HGTV.  When you build a custom luxury home, you incorporate your wishes, desires, and style into a home that will last you a lifetime. You are looking for reasons to build a custom home versus buying a speculative home.  Building your custom home doesn’t have to be a daunting task; in fact, with the right builder can be a gratifying experience.  At Thomas Building Company, we simplify the decision-making process by involving our recommended consultants in architecture and interior design to facilitate our team in the home building experience allowing you to express your vision and create your ultimate dream home.

We don’t just build homes; we create unforgettable memories that you and your family will enjoy for a lifetime. When you purchase an existing home or spec home, it wasn’t built or designed for what you need now and what you’ll want later. Whether you need flexible space for a growing family or more room for entertaining, we’ll design and build a house that endures a test of time that creates a lifetime of joy for your family. We offer high-quality craftsmanship, inspired design, attention to detail, and dedicated service with a commitment to deliver the home of your dreams.

Choosing to purchase a lot in the most desirable neighborhood or location that fits your long-term needs and desires can be the best investment decision you can make.  Building a custom home of your dreams can significantly improve your quality of life and overall happiness. It’s all up to you. Existing homes and speculative homes don’t always fulfill your needs, and you tend to sacrifice your actual needs and desires.  Our team of experts will assist you in all aspects of the design, build, and even best ways to situate your home on the lot to get the best curb appeal and natural light in the house. 




5. Invest in Your Future

When we build your custom home, rest assured we use high-quality building materials and utilize experienced craftsmen. In addition, we offer an industry-standard structural and craftsmanship warranty on our homes. On the other hand, when purchasing an existing home, there’s unforeseen wear and tear, and uncertain and unexpected future costs. When you build a custom home with Thomas Building, you are investing in a custom and energy-efficient home that will save you money today and in the future.

Cost containment involved in a fixed cost proposal is one of the primary reasons to build a custom home.  Our fixed-cost proposal gives you peace of mind that no unexpected cost will arise. Our expert subcontractors and suppliers allow us to access quality materials, with the highest value, at an affordable price. When you buy an existing home, you are paying for features or space that you may not want or need. However, when you build custom, you have the freedom to choose where you invest your dollars. At Thomas Building, we believe in transparent pricing. No hidden costs, no unwelcomed surprises—you have total control of your investment.

Existing older homes may require costly maintenance and renovation to modernize the home to your family’s needs.  Thomas Building custom homes are energy-efficient, with smart home features, and your family’s comfort in mind. Existing homes can cost more to maintain and run—especially when buy more space than you need. Quality custom construction from Thomas Building Company translates into a more efficient home and lower utility bills. We partner with you throughout the design process.  We listen and help you identify your needs, so your home has everything you always wanted in a new home.
