Research, Plan, Build and Enjoy!

You've made the decision - you are going to build a new custom home! What's next?

From researching the best builder for your family and designing your new home, to moving in and everything in between, our Custom Home Building Blog is designed to assist and inspire all Homeowners who are building a new home. 

Save or Splurge?

You’ve likely already crunched the numbers and know what you can afford. You’ve also likely scoped out ideas for your new home and started a wish list – perhaps with a few things on it that could stretch your budget. Knowing when to splurge and when to save will help you make room for those nice-to-have items, while ensuring you have all that you need.

Let's Stay Home

Home has been the place to be these past few months. We’ve swapped movie theatres for movie nights at home and relied on takeout or home cooking for meals. All that extra time at home might have made you think about what you need to feel comfortable in your space, especially if you’re looking to build a new home.

Building a Home in the "New Normal"

COVID-19 has changed the way many of us live and work. At Sawlor Built Homes, the health and safety of our customers, contractors and staff is of utmost importance, and so we’ve been adjusting to this “new normal.” If you’re looking to build a home, what does this mean for you?

Energy Efficient Practices: Then and Now

The 10-year challenge has been all the rage on social media, where people compare themselves now to who they were a decade ago. If we were to look at how energy efficient practices have evolved in the homebuilding industry these past 10 years, today’s standards would be the clear winner.

Creating a Home Office Space

It is a different world we’re living in, and one we may need to get used to for the foreseeable future. For many, that means working from home. Having a dedicated space to work helps you focus on the task at hand, while minimizing distractions.
