Considerations When Building Your Custom Denver HomeIf you want to ensure that you wind up with a home that perfectly matches your family’s needs, building your custom home in Denver from scratch is the best way to do it. It may be the only way to get exactly what you want.

Of course, building a custom home is never a simple task. However, at Division One Construction, we guide homeowners to ideal outcomes by helping them make all the necessary preparations during the planning and design process.

If you’re considering getting started on the design of a new custom home in Denver, here are some key elements that we recommend you keep in mind:

The building materials

You want to make sure that all materials are of high quality, are backed by solid warranties, and provide you with a good bang for your buck. It is especially important to choose the right roofing shingles and materials for interior and exterior walls and floors. These all make a big difference in the overall quality, beauty, and safety of your home.

Placement of the outlets

You’ll need ample outlets to power all of the appliances and devices throughout your office and living areas. It’s easy to misjudge the need for outlets, but we’re here to make sure it’s a part of your planning process.

Placement of the laundry room

If you have a two-story home, you may find an upstairs laundry room would be ideal, rather than carrying loads up and down stairs.

Kitchen features

What type of floors, cabinets, counters and appliances do you want in your home?


Make sure to choose quality sidewall insulation, galvanized nails, floor joist screws, and the best materials you can find.

Indoor and exterior lighting

Having a home that is well-lit on the inside and outside is important. This is why you should ensure that you have sufficient lighting placed throughout the ideal interior and exterior locations. You also want to consider the number of windows in your new home so you can get the right amount of natural light during the daytime.


Depending on where you live, you want to add additional safety measures to your home. Take precautions for threats of all kinds. You can have sprinklers installed in the kitchen and smoke and carbon monoxide detectors placed throughout your home as well.
