Custom Family Homes

Create Your Sanctuary

Building a custom family home allows you to get exactly what you and your family want; a custom retreat away from all of life’s responsibilities and demands.  We at AV Architects + Builders can help you plan every detail to achieve exactly the kind of custom family home you’re looking for.


When thinking of your custom design, consider how you and your family will use each room.  An open concept floor plan will open up numerous entertainment opportunities for you and the family.  It will also create a nice flow between high-traffic areas like the kitchen and living room – two spaces that the family are most likely to hang out in.  This trend is an ideal balance between high quality materials and modernized amenities that maximize your space and can increase functionality of your custom home.


The decision between hardwood and carpet flooring depends on the kind of custom family home you’re going after.  Each are well-suite for this type of custom home, though remember to keep your family’s needs in consideration.  If you have kids, one might consider including carpet throughout the main areas of the home.  If you have pets, your custom family home might opt for hardwood instead.  We can help address which option would be the best for your new custom home and highlight which works best with each room in the house.


For your new custom family home, making the decision between paint, wallpaper, and paneling isn’t easy.  Consider how each room is used and the aesthetics of each room.  Paint is considered an ideal choice for children’s and guest’s rooms, as it will hold up very well with cleaning.  Wallpaper is another good option for the main floor powder room, offering a high design element with low maintenance.

Windows & Doors

There are a myriad of custom window and door designs to choose from for your new custom family home, but make sure you choose these last so that they complement the rest of your custom design.  These should help highlight your custom design, not distract from it.

It’s time to create your dream home!
