Building a custom home is a rewarding way to incorporate all your wants, needs, and desires into your lifestyle.  Some may think that building a luxury custom home is too expensive or too daunting of a task. In fact, with the right design-build experts to guide you through the process saving you considerable expense. The team guides you meticulously through the decision-making process allowing you greater freedom among the design and building features.


Meeting with client to go over architectural plans


Unlike custom homes, most residential speculative developments include homes that look roughly the same. The original developer most likely offered a few different floor plans and various finish options. When you drive through these typical developments, rarely does a single home stand out from the crowd. Also, there is usually not as much freedom in customizing specific design features that best suit your family needs or desires.  

Things are different when you choose Thomas Building Company to build your luxury custom homes in Baton Rouge. When you build with Drew Gasser, you’re getting a house that looks great and stands out in your neighborhood.  In addition, your custom home is uniquely suited to you and your lifestyle. You control the design process, and you get to make the decisions needed to ensure that your vision becomes a reality. Ultimately, the customer comes first, and since this is a significant purchase you deserve to have a home built your way.


The Benefits of Choosing Custom Design

What are the specific benefits of choosing a custom design for your home? When you build a custom home you get the following:

  • Personalization: You get to make all of the choices, personalizing every aspect of your home so that it meets your needs and supports the lifestyle you desire. We meet routinely with you to gain insight into your desired home features and we offer suggestions along the way.
  • Optimization: When you choose a custom design, you’re able to optimize a home to fit the lot where it will sit. We work with the architect to maximize every aspect of your home to enhance your desired lifestyle.
  • Quality: Custom home-building is defined by its quality. When you choose a custom design, you can count on the craftsmanship that will stand the test of time.
  • Cost Containment: When you hire a good design-build team, they advise you on tips to contain costs to fit into your budget.  Also working with a builder who offers a fixed-cost proposal can significantly save you from running over your budget

Of course, you’ll discover there are many other benefits when you opt for custom-built homes over the speculative home alternatives. When you build custom homes you are in control, and we make the building process effortless and enjoyable.  At Thomas Building Company, we can help you realize the many benefits of tailor-made custom homes in Baton Rouge.
