Q: Is it possible to lower costs without losing amenities?
A: If the homeowners are flexible, there can be lots of creative ways to save money without sacrificing the things they consider important. For instance a kitchen pantry closet can reduce the cabinet budget while also providing more food storage. A simpler roof geometry might shave framing costs without taking away from the home’s interior
spaces. The ability to offer this type of value engineering is one of the many things that distinguish the professional custom and semi-custom builder.
