Here at Holland Homes, we understand that there is both a significant investment and a significant amount of stress that can develop during a remodel. Remodels are fantastic for a wide variety of reasons. The main reason being because they give a customer the opportunity to personalize a home to ensure it fits all their needs. During a remodel, people often focus on the larger and more exciting features like the kitchen, the bedrooms, the bathrooms and the basement. Although exciting, these larger features can often lead individuals to forget the smaller factors that are just as important in terms of functionality of your home. One of the most commonly overlooked features is where to consider and place custom storage. A home with poorly placed storage or a lack of storage space can significantly decrease resale value. There is a wide variety of locations within a home where storage can be added. Holland Homes wants to provide our clients with some information on the most popular and unique locations to add custom storage solutions throughout a home.

Building a custom home can be intimidating and overwhelming. Here at Holland Homes, we have a unique process involving four steps to ensure a positive experience while building a custom home. The first step is to develop the buyer’s dream - where the dream is turned into reality. The second step is the design of the home - focusing on both interior design and exterior design. The third step is the actual building process - the ability to see a new home “come to life”. The fourth, and final step, is a year-long service from Holland Homes - assistance in home touch-ups. Although each and every step is crucial, the most important aspect of this process is figuring out which custom home design is right for you. The key word is ‘custom’ - meaning the buyer can be specific in the details of the home and are able to design it exactly as they want. There are many different options and details to consider when designing a custom home. We want to provide our clients with some ideas to consider as they design the custom home that is exactly what they want.
