Custom home building in Greenville, NC can take some time. The average time to build a single-family house is around 7 months. Many families decide to start building homes in the summer. The concern comes when winter and fall arrives.
Experienced custom home builders in Greenville, NC have no trouble constructing a beautiful home in the cool fall and winter months! Sometimes, there are some advantages to building in the fall and winter months.
If you start building a home in the late summer, that means that the home will likely already have rough framing, a foundation, and electricity by the time things get really cold.  When it finally starts to get cold enough for snow, the project can be delayed. But to be honest, it’s actually much easier to tarp snow than it is to tarp rain. The fact is that snow is much more manageable and predictable than rain or summer showers. Snow can also be an advantage, since it keeps the ground warm by insulating it from colder surface temperatures. Since construction isn’t heavily affected by colder weather, some families actually prefer winter construction.
Building a custom home in Greenville, NC in the fall/winter can be beneficial because while most people want their home built in warmer months that means less people will want their home built in the fall and winter.  Home builders may be more attentive in fall and winter because they have fewer homes to work on. Starting in the winter can also save money. If you’ve gotten a hold of the right property in September or October and decide to delay construction until the Spring, you’ll have to carry the cost of the property until then.
