Fortunately, when it comes to ADU, Texas is more open to it than other areas. However, there are only designated zones where ADUs are permitted to be constructed, even in this state. At the same time, strict regulations must be followed regarding this.
Custom Built Home or Ready Built?
This question bothers many buyers who are planning whether to buy an existing home or seek a custom-built home by qualified builders. Though generally speaking, there are more benefits that come with buying a custom-built small house over buying an existing one.
For many people, comfort is one of the top benefits of building your home, including being able to build it in your dream location, with ideal privacy, and energy-efficient appliances. You will be able to save money down the road as a result of fewer repairs or remodeling projects as compared to the already-built home.
There are still countless advantages in custom-building your home out there, but we have listed a few below:
1. COMPLETE PERSONALIZATION
This is the biggest benefit of having your home custom built because you have the ability to build your home exactly as you want it, which caters to your personal needs. You have complete control over the appliances, utilities, wall and floor coverings that go into your home. You are in charge of every aspect of the construction of your new home. With a pre-built home, it is often difficult to get a home that suits your requirements.
2. Complete Functionality
Your custom home is designed entirely around you, including your floor plan. We completely understand how it feels like working around features and structures of already built pre-existing homes limiting your options for customization, thus to achieve your preferred home tailored for you is our living purpose.
Your home will have the flexibility and function to eliminate unused space and adapt to your needs and lifestyle. Whether you prefer an open floor plan or enjoy separate, defined rooms, it’s your call. You can choose a 2nd-floor design that only occupies a partial area leaving one or more sides for the lower floor which is called a loft or choose an entirely separate unit from your main house purposely intended for extended family size design-build. Whatever you have in mind, know that custom-built homes can make it come true.
3. COMPLETE PRIVACY AND CHOICE
For someone who has a specific area or individual lot in mind, he has it completely. If you are seeking for the seclusion of a wooded lot, or have lots of wide-open acreages, selecting an ideal spot would be easy in a site-built home. In addition, you can also provide inputs on how to design your home to maximize your own privacy.
4. ENERGY EFFICIENCY
With your brand-new house, new appliances will also make their way in and almost all modern appliances are energy efficient. This will end up in saving a considerable amount of energy and money in the long run.
5. LOW MAINTENANCE NEEDED
As custom-built houses are brand new, there will be the least maintenance throughout the first 10 to 20 years of your living. On the other hand, in older homes, there will be less to watch out for such as hipped bathroom tiles, old water heaters, and much more.
6. LOW CARBON FOOTPRINT
A standard existing building may or may not reflect your eco-conscious attitude but a brand-new custom-made home will enable you to minimize your carbon footprint. This will be done with the help of its plethora of carefully selected green options.
7. SENTIMENTAL VALUE
Last but not least, you can already imagine a home that was designed and built just for you. Let it be a single-family home, ADU, tiny house on wheels, secondary unit, or granny flats. It is your “Home Sweet Home” that will make you feel most welcomed and at peace no matter how far you roam.

The simplest way to define an ADU is another housing unit on the same lot as an existing home. It is different from storage structures like garages because it has all the amenities that you can find in usual living quarters.
In the modular building method, the construction is separated into smaller three-dimensional sections called modules. Each is built in a factory, including the interior, exterior, and even electric wiring and plumbing. Afterward, these are assembled, and the house is done and good to go.
