Here at Wellbank Park, we offer custom build homes. But why choose custom build – and what does it mean?

In a nutshell, with custom build, you collaborate with a developer who manages the construction process of your home and offers guidance throughout. You’ll choose a serviced plot, and have a say in the design and build – including aspects like layout, fittings, and even its external appearance.

It’s different to self-build houses, when you take on the responsibility of creating your home entirely – from planning to architectural design to overseeing the build process. And it’s more involved than a new build property, when you choose interior finishes and leave the rest to the developers. With custom build, you have the opportunity to personalise your living space according to your tastes and needs; and create the home you’ve always dreamed of.

Custom build offers a whole host of benefits – from flexibility to cost efficiency. Read on to discover why it might be the perfect choice for you.

The interior of a custom build home

1. Tailored design to suit your lifestyle

Custom build homes put you in the driver’s seat. Enjoy the freedom to personalise your home design to match your lifestyle and requirements. Whether you want an open plan kitchen / diner or two separate rooms; 4 bedrooms or 2 larger ones; the choice is yours. Finishes and fixtures are yours to choose, too – so you can create a space which reflects your vision.


2. Less stress and hassle


Managing a construction project can be complex and demanding to say the least! With a custom build home, the developer takes care of the logistics – like liaising with architects, contractors and suppliers. This frees you up to focus on the exciting aspects of creating your dream home, like how it’ll look inside; and how it will work for you.

We work with Hugr Homes, who have a wealth of professional expertise; and will be with you throughout the building process, providing valuable insights and professional expertise to help bring your dream home to life.

Plus, planning permission is already sorted, removing one of the more stressful aspects of planning your home. Hugr Homes design guide has been pre-agreed with planners, and outlines what is possible for your home.


3. Flexible and cost effective


Opting for a custom build home affords a great level of flexibility and cost efficiency. Having a say in how your house is designed and built means you can be clear about what you do (and don’t!) want; and save money in the process. Plus, if you can do some of the work yourself, then you can make a great saving compared to the cost of a new home. With custom build, this flexibility means you can adjust work to fit within your budget.

4. Energy Efficient


Modern custom build homes can be designed with sustainability in mind – and this is something we’re passionate about. You can opt for energy-efficient features, such as solar panels, great insulation, and air source heat pumps to reduce your carbon footprint and lower running costs.


5. Quality assurance

With custom build homes, you have greater control over the materials and craftsmanship used in construction. At Wellbank Park, we prioritise quality craftsmanship. We work with trusted and established professionals, to ensure that your home is built to the highest standards. Having this established relationship in place means you don’t need to worry about finding the right people for the job – which, especially when you’re not from the area, can be a concern.
