The Art of Custom Home Building: Understanding the Costs of Building Details in a Vleeming Custom Home

Building a custom home is an exciting endeavor, and achieving the perfect balance between your budget and the finer details is made effortless with Vleeming Custom Homes and our comprehensive pre-construction planning process. In this blog, we will explore the various details that go into a Vleeming custom home and understand the associated costs.

Exterior Finishes

Vleeming Custom Homes offers a range of exterior finishes to enhance your home’s curb appeal. Options include siding, stucco, stone, and wood accents. The cost varies depending on the material chosen and the complexity of the design. For example, using natural stone can be more expensive than traditional siding options, but it provides a luxurious and timeless look.


Your choice of roofing material greatly affects both the aesthetic and cost of your custom home. Vleeming homes feature roofing options like asphalt shingles, metal, and cedar shakes. While asphalt shingles are more budget-friendly, cedar shakes offer a unique, high-end appearance, albeit at a higher cost.

Windows and Doors

Vleeming custom homes prioritize energy efficiency and natural lighting. The cost of windows and doors can vary depending on factors such as size, material, and energy efficiency. Triple-pane windows, for instance, are more expensive but offer superior insulation, reducing long-term heating and cooling costs.

Your choice of flooring can significantly impact the overall cost of your custom home. Vleeming offers a wide range of options, including hardwood, tile, and luxury vinyl. The cost varies depending on the type and quality of the material.

Cabinetry and Countertops

Kitchens and bathrooms are key areas where quality matters. Vleeming homes feature custom cabinetry and countertops, available in various materials and finishes. Premium materials like quartz and granite come at a higher cost but offer durability and timeless appeal.


Custom Millwork

Vleeming Custom Homes often include custom millwork, which encompasses elements like built-in shelving, wainscoting, and coffered ceilings. The complexity and intricacy of the millwork design influence the cost.

Mechanical Systems

Vleeming Custom Homes prioritize energy efficiency and sustainability. High-efficiency heating and cooling systems, along with advanced insulation, might have a higher upfront cost but result in long-term energy savings.
