Custom Homes by J. Scull wants families to understand that catering a custom home to fit your needs can be a very real, affordable and positive experience. Your home can be the special place you’ve already imagined to live and watch your family grow.
“We take pride in helping our home owners achieve the secure, proud feeling that only comes from building a quality, custom home the exact way you want it,” said Custom Homes owner Jim Scull.
Scull said that there are numerous decisions homeowners must make on their journeys to building custom homes. What should you do first? Buy land? Hire an architect? Or hire a builder?
“Realistically, a custom homebuilder is the best person to assist you with setting a budget for your land and home. This person has the best knowledge of all the intricacies involved,” said Scull.
Scull said his team of Rapid City custom home designers see customers who pay dearly for land without knowing if the land is buildable – or what the cost of improvements such as septic systems, driveways and grading – might be.
Scull recommends talking to a builder first, because a good builder can garner an idea of the level of quality you want and need in your new custom home – as well as the home lot size you’re seeking. That information helps determine the cost of building your new custom home.
After talking to a builder, the next step is talking to a mortgage banker who can determine what you can afford – as well as explain the unique construction-
The third step is to look for your ideal piece of land. Find a realtor familiar with the land listings in the area you want to live, and start exploring the countryside. Once you’ve found the property of your dreams, you’ll be ready to sit down with your architect, budget in hand, and design a home that best fits that home lot as well as your desires.
Finally, you can return to your custom home builder to bring your dreams to reality.
“Be certain you find a builder who will help you navigate the process and who will build you a high-quality, energy-efficient custom luxury home that will last,” said Scull.
