Beyond the Home Construction Basics

Designing a custom home allows you the freedom to create unique spaces to meet all your family’s needs.  From home theaters and sport courts to game rooms and wet bars, specialty rooms are places where memories are made.

We’ll help you carve out the right amount of space for your activities, integrating the spaces in a thoughtful and logical way with the rest of the home.  The first step is prioritizing which spaces you’d like to incorporate into your home.   There’s an endless variety of specialty rooms:  reading room, fitness room, arts & crafts room, home cinema, pool table/gaming room, wet bar, wine cellar, specialty car storage, workshop space, pet areas, just to name a few.  Each room has a unique set of design challenges that our designers will guide you through.   While a sport court may require specialty flooring and a full-size basketball hoop, a home theater requires a state-of-the-art projection system and sound enhancing acoustic materials.  Our designers stay up to date on the latest trends and technology to provide you with the best designs for your specialty rooms.

Consider the following questions as you think about your new specialty space:

  1. What types of activities do you and your family like to do on a regular basis?
  2. How much space do you want to allocate to the activity?
  3. What percentage of your home building budget do you want to allocate toward this space?
  4. Do you want the space to function for multiple activities?
  5. How many people will be using the space at the same time?
  6. Does the space require specialty materials (rubber flooring, acoustics, lighting, soundproofing, temperature control, lighting control etc.)?
  7. Will you need to access the space from outside?
  8. Is there a preferred location for the space?  Main level, lower level, front of the house, back of the house, garage area?
