Custom Building a Forever Home


At Oberer Homes, we pride ourselves on our craftsmanship and building a forever home that families can comfortably live in for years to come.  To some, their forever home may include living in a community with low maintenance with a floor plan suited to fit their lifestyle. Along with selecting the perfect neighborhood, it’s also important to select the right customizable home features. There are a few design features to consider when building your forever home. 


Consider Your Family’s Current and Future Needs

When designing a custom home, it may be obvious to consider your current needs as you select your customizable features. Perhaps your family is growing and you’re seeking a spare bedroom, or you may prefer to have the laundry on your home’s first floor. Along with taking time to think about your current needs, it’s important to consider your family's future needs as well. Take hallways and stairs into consideration when designing your forever home, as you’ll find yourself using those corridors later in life.


Opt for User Friendly Fixtures

Selecting certain hardware and fixtures in your kitchen and bathroom can help to make it user-friendly for people of all ages. For example, pulls and handles are often easier for most to grasp and use. This goes for door handles as well, ensuring all family members are able to easily navigate the home. 


Design the Main Floor as a Livable Space

When designing your custom home with family in mind, consider the functionality of the main floor. Ensuring the main level is suited with a full bathroom and bedroom will ease all worries. This makes it easy for older grandparents or those who have mobility issues. Having a bedroom and full bath on the main floor can easily be customized when building with Oberer Homes.
