Your Dream Home Starts Here, Built Your Way

When you walk down an average suburban street, do you notice that new builds share a similar look? If you’re looking for a distinct design that stands out from the rest - you’re in the right place. There’s nothing average about our custom homes.

Your home should be an extension of you. It should encompass your personality, aspirations, and lifestyle. This is why you’ll never achieve your dream home when you build under a standard plan.

Imagine the freedom of starting with a blank canvas alongside an exceptional design team to discover and define your vision.

With our state-of-the-art team, your ideas are always embraced and never restricted.


A Luxury Builder Who’s Mastered A Seamless Building Experience

We’re proud to have grown largely by word of mouth and contribute our success to our long-term client relationships. Take a look at what our clients have to say about their experience with us.

We could not be happier with our new build with WARE Design Build!! I had a very specific look in mind for our house and we looked at A LOT of builders, ones that claimed to be "custom," but when it came down to it they couldn't achieve what we were looking for. WARE truly is custom.

The design process was my favorite, they let us be as involved as we wanted to, which was perfect because I'm rather opinionated. Their architect and designers sat down and really listened to what we wanted and were so knowledgeable. In fact, everyone in the office is so kind and friendly. Dan, the owner, has a great team!

Justin, our project superintendent, is on top of everything! This is the guy you want working on your dream home. His attention to detail is unmatched. All of the things that people say are so smart and cool when they see our house, were all of his ideas! I can't imagine our house being any other way, he is brilliant.

We will definitely be calling on WARE when we decide to build again!

FAQ's About Building A Custom Home

It depends on a lot of factors, like your budget and what you want in a home. But generally speaking, if you have the money and you're prepared to spend it, building a custom home is definitely worth it.

You get to choose everything about your home, from the layout to the finishes and fixtures. You can also customize it to fit your specific needs and tastes. And since it's built just for you, it'll be perfect for your lifestyle and family.

Plus, a custom home is usually more energy-efficient and eco-friendly than a pre-made one, so you'll be saving money on utilities in the long run. So if you're looking for comfort, flexibility, and sustainability, a custom home is your best bet.

Building a custom home can be expensive, but it's usually cheaper than buying a pre-made home that doesn't meet all your needs. And if you ever sell your home, chances are you'll get more money for it than if you had bought an existing one.

It's crucial to choose someone experienced since it's their job to take your dream house and turn it into reality. On top of that, you should also look for a builder who has a reputation for quality projects, and one you have a good rapport with.

In general, it's best to work with someone who offers customizable, high-quality designs—not only because the specs of your home will be unique, but also so you can make changes if needed or wanted. And since building a custom home is a big investment, it's important to work with someone you trust and who will keep everything on schedule and within budget.

Generally, you'll need to hire a design-build firm. A qualified design-build firm will have the resources and manpower to handle everything from finding your lot to building your home, installing the electrical system, plumbing, etc., making sure it's up to code, and handling any necessary permits.

The builder should also be able to work with your architect or have their own on staff. At Ware, we have a team of architects, designers, and builders all in-house, which saves our clients time and money. And the builder should be able to give you a detailed schedule and timeline for your project, which will keep it on track and avoid any major delays.

When you hire a design-build firm, the entire process goes much more smoothly because one company is responsible for both design and construction.

There's no one answer to that question since it's dependent on the size of the home, materials used, features desired, and the price of your lot. Our custom homes typically begin at around $500,000, not including the lot.

Again, it's tough to give an exact timeframe without knowing your specific situation. But generally speaking, our custom homes take about 7 to 8 months to build.

Keep in mind that custom homes are tailored to your specific needs and tastes, therefore you'll be getting exactly what you want and require out of your house - which makes it all worthwhile in the end.
