Do Custom Homes Cost More?

There are a number of misconceptions about the cost of building a modern custom home which can be a deterrent for those who may be working within a fixed budget. In reality, it is the choices you make for your home design and its location that will determine the price, which is based on a number of factors:

The size, location, and physical features of your chosen lot can have a significant influence on the overall cost of your home. Custom-built homes on your land in Southern California may be impacted by the soil conditions, water table, and the cost and availability of utility services to the home. Your square footage, chosen finishes, and overall design, as well as the level of experience and qualification of your chosen home builder, will also dictate the net cost.

What Is Green Home Design?

A green home is one that is built using sustainable, environmentally friendly, and energy-efficient materials and building techniques. There are several elements that are specific to green home design including:


Materials for a green home design are, whenever possible, obtained from renewable, natural sources that are either:

  • Locally sourced to reduce carbon emissions during transport
  • Harvested or managed using sustainable practices
  • Locally salvaged from reclaimed materials


Every measure is taken to preserve the local ecology while paying close attention to orienting the home in a favorable position to the sun, shade, and wind patterns for maximum energy efficiency.

Design & Engineering

The performance and efficiency of the home are dependent on a number of design and engineering choices typically used for green home design, including:

  • Use of natural light
  • Alternative energy sources
  • Air quality
  • Airflow
  • Proper sizing of HVAC equipment
  • Overhangs
  • Wall thickness

Energy Efficiency

Energy consumption can be dramatically reduced with the following:

  • High-efficiency doors and windows
  • Insulation
  • Insulated hot water pipes
  • Wind wraps
  • Alternative energy sources


Green home construction requires specialized knowledge and skills to meet the standards for sustainability and to maximize your investment.

Water Conservation

Drought restrictions throughout Southern California highlight the need for water conservation efforts which may include:

  • Collection and storage of rainwater
  • Low-flow plumbing fixtures
  • A gray water system
