Floorplan & Design
For most homebuilders this is the most exciting phase of the homebuilding process. At this point you have carefully chosen your lot, know where on your lot you will build, and you have your financing in order. The next step is for the custom home building experts at Putnam Builders will help you design the perfect home to fit your land and your lifestyle.
At Putnam Builders you’ll have access to our hundreds of customizable floor plans or we can help you design a new floorplan using our 3D design software. Our 3D design software will allow you to fully realize your custom home before it’s built. You’ll have a clear idea of the flow and spacing of your home.
While designing your floorplan you’ll have the option to upgrade different areas of your custom home. Take the time to consider what special options and upgrades will make your custom home your dream home. Depending on your lifestyle this may include an extra large walk-in closet with dressing area, above garage workshop, dual master suites, home office or gym, or sun room. If you love to cook or have a large family you may decide to on a gourmet chef kitchen with walk-in pantry. Visiting family may warrant an extra bedroom. If you parents are aging this may be the time to build a granny cottage. Since Putnam Builders offers fully custom home design, the possibilities are only limited by your imagination.
During this process we will also work with you on the orientation of your home in order to maximize any view or natural elements of your land, and to give you the level of privacy you desire.
