Building a Custom Home

Building A Custom Home

Building a custom home is an exciting time; however, it can also come with a lot of questions. At Kastler Construction, we do our best to anticipate any concerns you might have about the process, which is why we have created this FAQ.

Feel free to browse our list or come up with questions of your own. We have been in the residential building industry for over 20 years, and welcome you to call our Oakland County home building contractors to start the conversation about your new home and answer any questions you might have.

What is the first step?

Once you have decided to build a custom home, you will need to purchase property that is suitable for your future building.  As long standing members of the custom home building industry we have trusted realtor partners that can help you find a location that best suits your needs or you can use your own agent. Once you own the property, we can start designing the details of your dream home.

Do I need to own land before contacting you?

No, we welcome you to contact us to get the building process started. Depending on the city you would like to build, type of home, size, and other design factors, a first stop to Kastler Construction can help you gain clarity and get the custom home building process started.

Are You Licensed?

Yes, we have had a Builder’s License from the State of Michigan for over 20 years. Further, we require that all of our tradesmen and partners are licensed and insured as well.

Are You Insured?

Yes, we protect our workers through the proper builder’s insurance such as workers’ compensation. By insuring our team members, you won’t be responsible for paying for any of their medical expenses should they become injured on the job. At Kastler Construction, we look after our workers to make sure they are protected under the law.

Do You Have References?

Yes, we have references that can give you a good picture of our building capabilities. For over 20 years we have made our clients happy with custom new homes.

How Much Will This Cost?

Each home built by our experienced home builders is unique – no cookie cutter homes here! We take into consideration your wants and needs as well as your budget.  Depending on the location of your home, the size of your home, and the detailed features, costs can range from $350,000 to millions of dollars. The number of square feet, level of luxury appointments and architectural detail help us determine the pricing of your new home. Keep in mind that these are only estimates and are not an accurate depiction of what your home could cost.

How Long Before I Can Enjoy My New Custom Home?

Home construction usually lasts between 10 and 16 months. However, factors such as weather conditions, the size of the proposed house, and the complexity of design plans can affect the home building timeline. We have excellent relationships with our trades and suppliers to keep the project moving along. We also work closely with our clients throughout the building process. Our goal is to get you in our new home as soon as possible.

Even though building a custom home can be a stressful process, our clients always report being happy with the finished product. If you are interested in having us build a custom home for you and your family, feel free to call our Oakland County home builders at (248) 655-5580.
