When you are ready to build a new home, the most important question is what kind of new home should you build? There are so many styles to choose from, but usually, there are a few that come to mind immediately. The process of choosing your style of home when you are building a custom home in Beaverton is so much easier when you look at the different styles and what makes each of them so unique.


A cozy craftsman house might be exactly what you want when building a custom home in Beaverton. The simplicity, handiwork, and natural materials make a craftsman home a popular choice when building a new home. There are so many features that make craftsman homes a good choice. The features that make a craftsman special are beautiful porches to sit on in the evenings and the stone details and shingle siding. If you choose a craftsman home with its low profile roof, you will find this home will always be close to your heart.

Ultra Modern

Maybe you would prefer a super sleek, ultra-modern home. The windows can be floor-to-ceiling to give that sleek, ultra-modern look with doors that open up to the outdoors and the beauty of nature. Some of the features of an ultra-modern home are distinct angles and a modular look. This is a chance to use very modern materials when building and finishing your home. If you are lucky enough to have a piece of property with a spectacular view, you might want to choose a modern style house that blends well with nature. An ultra modern home can give you that wow factor that you are looking for when building a custom home in Beaverton.


If you are looking for a home that feels fresh and relaxed, then maybe a country ranch/ farmhouse is the home for you. You can feel at home in the country even if you don’t live in the country. A country ranch/ farmhouse is sure to give you that feeling. From porches that wrap around the entire house with plenty of entertaining space to swings hung from the porch rafters, a country ranch/farmhouse will be a place that everyone feels peaceful and wants to linger while sipping lemonade.

Your family will enjoy the convenience of the one-story living that a country ranch/ farmhouse provides. Kids especially enjoy living in it, and every day can be like a picnic. Many homeowners love gardening and spending time outdoors. So if you have a piece of land and you are wanting to capture a simpler time, a country ranch/farmhouse is the home for you.
