The Value of a Single Level Custom Home Building

Living in Myrtle Beach, we are seeing a continual uptick in the real estate market.  With many states taxes rising, the situation is opposite in South Carolina.  It is beyond affordable to live here.  We are seeing many empty nesters and retirees making the trek down the southern way to find relief for their golden years and maximize their estate plan.  There are some things to consider when designing and planning your custom home.

One is living space.  Trends the past few years have moved the Master Bedroom to the bottom floor.  Mom and Dad have not wanted to go the way of stairs every day.  With increased age though, many don’t desire stairs at all for an option.  Back pain, and increased difficulty with mobility is something many are beginning to think about.  No one thinks much about it when healthy and young, but take care of an aging parent and you will know how limiting gatherings and living on upper floors can become a simple no go.  Even now one of the major things my family considers before attending any event is understanding the layout of the venue.

In our latest design consideration, Suriano Homes founder, Tom Suriano has created something that the people moving into our area that are calling for.  They are  desiring something different than most of the big custom communities are doing.  Below is our newest Model Home in Waterbridge, a custom home community in Myrtle Beach.  “The Heather”, a 2400 square foot single level coastal cottage ranch style home is fitting the need of many new home lookers.

Advantages include, all living spaces on one floor, no stairs to contend with, still a generous sized home that can include bedrooms or office/study that can give a varied living space to meet many needs.  The home boasts a 2 car garage and a generous porch that can be adjusted to be an all season room, screened or open porch.

Some people do desire more of a yard for the reason that they are used to living in a non-HOA community or a more rural area.  One thing to consider is also the yard work necessary to maintain the whole home and lot.  Older age means that much will have to be contracted out.  This can be expensive when dealing with spreading mulch, in-season yard work and general maintenance.  Having simpler and smaller sized lots for many is not a downside, but an advantage.

The video below is an update on our “Heather” plan in motion.  The demand for single story/ranch style homes are on the increase for the retirement home or long term investment purchase for many people in their empty nest phase of life.  Additions that can be modified on this plan can include adding a simple bonus room above the garage. This does allow for stairs, but again, it will be only for storage and perhaps a bathroom for guests.  It doesn’t necessitate much in the way of going up and down stairs regularly.

Floor Plan Design Process

Floor Plan Design Process

The idea of coming up with a floor plan can be very scary for almost all the clients we work with.  But it really doesn’t have to be.  Suriano Homes has a thorough system that we operate by that ensures quality delivery for each of our client’s dream home design.  The process is quite simple.  Lot selection, and by that, we have to remember to make the lot selection appropriate.  If we want a wide house on a narrow  lot, that is a dream nobody can fulfill.  So, keeping in mind the basic “look” you are going for, then selecting a lot that will allow for that dream to fit.  If you are uncertain, you should definitely us up front first. Better to consult than to settle for second best. Who wants to regret a land purchase before you break ground?

Once we have all of that out of the way, we get to the fun part.  We sit down with Tom, our very experienced builder.  He listens as you share everything that you desire.  He will talk budget, architectural review codes (if necessary), advantages of building up or out, and all the nuances you WILL NOT BE THINKING ABOUT.  Tom will then hand the “Dream” off to one of our qualified C.A.D. designers.  A floor plan is made!

But that is not all.  Almost 100% of the time, changes must be made.  So don’t panic, expect it!  In our follow up meeting, we will rework entryways, window placement, outlet placement, tweak porch dimensions, etc.  After resubmitting the ideas,  our CAD design team will make the changes real time so you can see how you like or dislike the suggestions.

Now we are ready to roll!  Don’t panic if the design is not finished in two or three meetings.  It is ok.  We are a team dedicated to getting it right with you.  Suriano Homes knows that designing a custom home takes some patience, especially in the beginning phases of the design/build process.

Take a watch at our short (1.37 minute), fun video.  The music and cinematic fun is just to show you how we see the process.  So don’t be intimidated, come in and let us hear your dream.  Who is ready to floor plan with Suriano?
