Building a custom home allows our client the freedom to design a floor plan that meets their needs and budget.  We are available to work with the client from notes on a piece of paper to the last picture on the wall.  Referring to our years of experience in building homes in the Marco Island, Isles of Capri and Collier County area, we work closely with you on designing the plans of your one-of-a-kind home to make the kitchen more efficient, the pool deck and lanai more enjoyable and the view (the Gulf of Mexico, boat dock, pool, lanai, sunsets, beautiful gardens and palm trees) more spectacular – just to name a few things.  Custom doesn’t mean expensive.  It means meeting your specific lifestyle.  Making a house your home can be done with ease when choosing Tom Christian Construction as your builder.

Our understanding of the unique environment of Marco Island, Collier County and Southwest Florida as well as the building codes provides peace of mind to our clients.

A Custom home builder creates a one of a kind home that offers an even greater range of design choices that’s often built on a single lot. Buyers who wish to select most details of their new home often decide to work with a custom builder.

As the name implies, the process of building a custom home is less scripted than a production home, because there are no pre-defined choice or menus to choose from. With custom homes:

    • The home can be built on land you own or land that you acquire.
    • You can supply a floor plan or commission a set of home plans to be drawn from scratch.
    • You’ll be more involved in the process and have the opportunity to make many decisions.
    • You can pick from nearly any product in a category –within your budget of course – rather than selecting from a defined menu of choices.

When building a new custom home, your choices are nearly unlimited; the main restrictions are your budget and any building code or zoning limitations. The key to working with a custom builder is to establish a realistic budget and to stick to it, even when you’re enticed by a lovely but high-cost option.   During each stage of design of a Custom Home, you’ll have a very wide range of choices to make your home truly unique.  Knowing what to expect at each stage – and especially what choices you’ll make and when – can make your custom home process smooth and result in the home you’ve always dreamed about.

From conception to completion, let Tom Christian Construction make you dream home a reality. You will know and feel the difference between a Tom Christian home and others.

One of our new home owners recently told Tom “when we hired you to build our new home we expected a 9 out of 10 — we got a 17”.
