Custom Homebuilding Phase 2: Selecting a Location

Custom Homebuilding Phase 2:

Selecting a Location


One of the most valuable things about owning a custom home is the ability to select the perfect location. If you have not purchased land Putnam Builders will help you find the perfect lot.

If you’ve already purchased a piece of land already Putnam Builders will provide you with a buildability evaluation. Some areas of your land may be more feasible to build upon that others. Although you may want to build in the center of your lot for maximum privacy you may discover through this evaluation that to bring water, electricity and sewer to that location will take up the majority of your budget. The evaluation that Putnam Builders will provide will inform you of the estimated costs of site development so that you may pick the optimum location within your land to build that fits within your desires and budget.


House Placement

All lots will have limitations on where you can place your home. Smaller or narrow lots may limit your floor plan options to certain footprints. The good news is Putnam Builders has over 50 years of experience building custom homes on unique lots. We can help you get all the features you want in a smaller footprint. For example, our Grandview Home is placed on a narrow lot, but still boasts a spacious 3,500 square feet, 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, office, game room, and 2 car garage.



Site Development

Since Putnam Builders works closely with these site development companies you can be certain that they will meet all insurance and qualification standards. Site development may include installing piers, pouring a temporary driveway for construction vehicles, excavation, tree removal, and more. After we evaluate your land and necessary site development we will create a list of necessary permits.


Custom homebuilding is a complicated process and Putnam Builders will be there to answer any questions you have along the way.
