How Much Does an Asheville Custom-Built Home Cost?

The cost-per-square-foot of an Asheville custom-built home depends on the size of the home, the cost of fixtures, the cost of the finishes, the materials you choose and more. Since all of these considerations are unique to each construction project, cost-per-square-foot isn’t the best way to calculate how much the project will cost. Cost-per-square-foot is commonly used in home resale situations instead of construction projects.

Brian Sineath built our dream home in the mountains of Asheville. It is a custom home built on a steep slope (i.e. >35 deg) that had some geo challenges. He was with us every step of the way – and has remained in contact with us long after move in. His crews are outstanding and Brian has the utmost integrity before, during, and after construction.

Asheville Custom-Built Homes FAQ


Yes, when building a custom home, you will need house plans, such as plans for plumbing, electrical, elevations and possibly even structural engineering. The architect will supply these drawings, the builders road map. If you’re not working with an architect already, we can refer you to professionals to draw up plans or help you pick an existing plan that will work for your vision.

Most clients get a construction loan to build their custom home. A construction loan can be used to cover the cost of the land, the general contractor fees, contractor labor, building materials, permits and more. Most construction loans include a timeframe of one year in which the home must be built and a certificate of occupancy (called a CO) is issued. After construction is completed, most construction loans convert to a conventional loan. We interviewed a local mortgage lender on our blog. Check out A Construction Loan Primer

Choosing materials, fixtures, colors, oh my! It’s a lot to think about, and many people have no idea where to start. For some, the thought of making so many decisions is daunting and overwhelming. To make it easy - and dare we say fun - all of our clients receive a complimentary free one-hour consultation with interior designer Becky Walter. After meeting with her, each client will receive a mood board, which provides direction and guidance about what the client wants the interiors to look like and feel like. We share this mood board with our suppliers so they can help the client pick what’s just right for them. Hop over to our blog to learn more about Creating a Vision for Your Home with a Complimentary Interior Design Consultation.

We work on a straightforward cost-plus a fee. Since we are a custom builder, this fee structure allows us to be open-book and share our information with you. We strive to be very inclusive and transparent with our clients and to work together on making decisions that impact cost.

We use a project management tool that allows us to keep everything clear and transparent. You can see the overall budget, each line item and how any change affects the overall budget. You can learn more about this on our Making the Building Process Transparent blog post.

That’s a great question, and more people should ask it. We put together a primer on what it’s like to work with a custom builder like us, and we recommend taking a few moments to read on our blog: https://sineathconstruction.com/guide-to-building-new-or-custom-home.
