Custom Home Builders in Adelaide

Building a custom home doesn’t have to be complicated and expensive

You’re probably thinking, a custom home? That’ll break the bank.

Lofty really impressed and ticked all the boxes when it came to our budget, quality, communication, transparency and build time...Lofty genuinely listened to my ideas and had the knowledge and expertise to make it happen without any confusing jargon. My gut feeling was that I could trust them…and I was right!...Lofty has an awesome, dedicated and hardworking team that just makes things run fluently all while keeping the client up to date.

Custom Home Frequently Asked Questions

What is a custom home builder?

When we say we’re custom, we mean it. Everything is one-of-a-kind and every aspect of your plan can be customised exactly as you’d like it. Your home is specifically designed with and for you and your lifestyle. Custom builders like us are flexible and adaptable to changes and provide a tailored service, resulting in a more personalised process. Some builders have set plans that you must choose from to build your new home with little to no personalisation on offer. So while these are perfectly functional homes, if you already have an idea of what it is you’re after, it can be difficult to find a plan that lives up to your expectations. While we do also have standard plans available, these can simply be used as a starting point and each aspect of the design is able to be modified to suit your needs.

Why choose a custom home builder?

If you already have a concept or design in mind, have specific wants or needs for your home, or you simply just like the freedom of being able to change any aspect of your design with no additional fees or push back, then a custom home builder should be your first choice. You have complete control over the layout and design of your home, we are simply here to guide you and provide our expertise to get you to that dream home goal.

How to choose a custom home builder?

Transparency, reputation and quality are amongst some of the most important aspects when choosing a custom home builder in Adelaide. With Lofty, we’ve designed our process to be super simple, with a high level of transparency and communication throughout. We have countless happy customers; you can hear about their experiences here. We also encourage you to view the quality of our builds by visiting our display homes. Unlike some display homes, ours are homes built to be lived in and show a true Lofty finish.

Is building a custom home more expensive?

The long and short of it is, yes building a custom home can be more expensive than building an ‘off the plan’ home, but at the end of the day you will find each type of build is comparable in terms of price once you consider the final turn-key outcome. Building a custom home has a range of benefits, namely the fact that the home is designed specifically for you and you will not be nearly as limited in your choice of features and finishes.

Often, volume builders with set floor plans will offer limited to no customisation, so modifying a plan can become expensive quickly. Ask yourself, why modify a plan to suit you, when you can have a plan designed for you? The base prices provided by this type of builder will typically be for the most basic of home (not the ones you see in a display village) and will exclude some important features such as air conditioning, paths and driveways.

It is important that when getting quotes from a range of builders, you make sure each is comparable, apples for apples and includes everything you want in your home. We suggest that you do not work from base prices or prices per square metre, because you will find that these will vary wildly from builder to builder and are largely dependent on what you choose to include in your build.

If you want your build to be fast, custom, effortless, and ultimately more affordable, you should work with Lofty. Our design and construction teams have years of knowledge and experience when it comes to building a home. Since we combine the design and build process, we can make the entire project more efficient—and thus more affordable for you. Find out more about the benefits of building custom on our blog.

Will I have help with the design process?

Of course, we’re not going to leave you out in the cold. We understand that some people may know exactly what they want, but many clients are looking for professional guidance in designing the right home layout, choosing a colour scheme and selecting all your finishes. Lofty has experienced people in every department, ready to assist in designing a home perfect for you. The perfect home requires attention to detail, understanding your specific needs and designing around your lifestyle. With access to our in-house team of designers expertise we will help craft the perfect plan for you.

How long does a custom home take to build?

There are a few factors that determine the length of the build timeline. There are also some factors outside of our control, including council approvals. For the build itself, we have a detailed breakdown of the timeline here. Also, bear in mind that the process to build a custom home is a little different to an ‘off the plan’ home, but it does not need to take longer.

Can I choose the fixtures, fittings and finishes?

Definitely! Making your selections can be one of the most exciting and yet daunting aspects of your build journey. Soon enough you’ll find yourself ready to make your selections for your new home build. Once you reach this stage you will be guided through The Gallery, our in-office selections studio, and the process by our master Selections Consultants, to make choosing your home’s fixtures, fittings, appliances and the like incredibly simple. Our team will help you bring your home to life with high quality finishes that suit your style.
