Milford Architectural New Build Homes – Your Choice To Suit Your Life


You’re looking for a new house, but you don’t know where to start. You want a home that will grow with your family and provide the space they need now, and in the future. A cookie-cutter home, built to a standard plan is not the answer. You need an architectural new build home designed and custom-built specifically to suit your family and lifestyle.


What Makes An Architectural New Build Different?

Housing companies want to maximise their profit. To do that they need to build a house as fast as possible with as few changes as they can. That means they build new houses to a standard plan.


  • They can buy more of the same materials so get a bulk discount.
  • They use the same marketing material.
  • They build one show house.


All of these save costs for the builder but don’t do anything for the house buyer, who ends up with a house that looks the same as next door, and the next street. You also have to fit your family into the spaces provided.


An architectural new build house is built to your specifications and designed to suit your particular family – it is unique.


The architect will take into account your family’s need for space and help you with a floor plan.


Milford Architectural New Build HomesYour architecturally designed custom home can be built to your exact requirements so you’ll have the features that suit your lifestyle. You can include every feature and design idea that you want.


This can range from the square footage, the floor plan and layout. Do you want multiple living rooms or one big open-plan space? You can include entertainment rooms, the right number and size of bedrooms. How many bathrooms do you want? Do you want an en-suite for each bedroom?


With an architecturally designed new build, your home can be customised and tailored specifically for you.


High-Tech And Efficient Facilities So You Can Live Comfortably

An architectural new build house goes beyond the layout and the external look. You can select whatever colours, facilities and materials you want.


Living and energy efficiency are also considered during the design process. An architecturally designed house will have all mod cons that will help you live comfortably while saving on energy bills.


You can have home automation and security systems so you can control your heating and lighting from your phone while checking the family is safe while you are away.


The Design Goes Beyond The Building Itself

You have a blank canvas to fill in whether it’s materials, colours or appliances. You get to choose what you want. However, the array of materials, floor coverings and colours is vast. Then add choosing kitchen appliances, heating systems, security devices and much more and it can quickly become overwhelming.


This is another area where the designer can help you. The architect will know the latest materials, fixtures and appliances to suit your needs. They will work with you to choose the right materials for your new home to suit its location and your personal preferences.


They will help you decide what features to include like air conditioning, lighting both indoors and in the garden.  Do you want a sound system throughout the house and again outdoors for music at your barbeque?  The designer will have worked with all of these and more. They will suggest features that you may not have considered so there is no need to worry about anything being overlooked.


Building A Great New Home

There are two essential factors in building a new house:

  • The Project management
  • Communication


A good Project Manager will make sure that the right labour along with the correct amount of materials are onsite, when they are needed. Not early, not late. This saves time and money.


Any big project will have issues, so it is key that all parties are informed and up-to-date on the progress. Similarly, when there is an alteration to the design or materials, either because the client has a change of mind or there is a supply problem, then everyone involved needs to know as soon as possible.


At Cain Built we repeatedly get positive comments from our happy customers about how well we manage their project. Bringing it in on time and to the agreed budget.

After the initial discussions with you to understand your wants and needs, we can refer a designer best suited to generate plans for your dream house. Clear communication is important so that everyone in the process knows what is happening.

We are aware of the most recent materials and appliances since we work with other discriminating clients. That experience means we can talk to you about the materials that will best suit your aims and goals in your new home. It gives you the best combination of quality and value for your money.
