Custom vs Standard Designs: Which is right for you?


When it comes to building your new home, most people are torn between a Custom design or off the plan Standard design. This decision can often result in spending hours on google searches, media articles, websites, and advertisements, this soon gets confusing to the best of us

The McLachlan Homes Team are here to make this decision a whole lot easier, they have been designing and building over 2100 Homes for Queenslanders for over two decades.

Whilst there are benefits to both selections, it also can come down to a few contributing factors.

Unusual shape or a sloping site? If the answer is yes, Custom is more than likely the way to go. A Custom design will maximise unusual or difficult block potential by working with the site instead of trying to make a standard design fit. The one on one service will have the Design and Sales Consultants meet with you onsite to bring the best out of your block and ensure the design has all the elements you require. Make the most of views, create unique street scopes the potential is limitless.

Custom Design, doesn’t that mean it is more expensive? Not with the McLachlan Homes team. Adhering to their motto “built around lifestyle”, in simple terms they build around your lifestyle, your taste, and your budget – Custom project or Standard design.
