When building a custom home, the location and site preparation is crucial in creating a harmonious and functional living space. It's essential to carefully consider factors such as the natural landscape, views, sunlight exposure, access to utilities, and overall functionality of the site.


The site's function is essential in determining the layout and design of the home. Factors such as the slope of the land, drainage patterns, and existing vegetation can impact the placement of the house, the orientation of rooms, and the flow of indoor and outdoor spaces. By carefully analyzing the site, Reynard Custom Homes ensure that the home integrates seamlessly with its surroundings, maximizing comfort, convenience, and sustainability.


Placement is another critical consideration. The position of the home on the site can take advantage of scenic views, natural light, and privacy. It also determines how the house interacts with the surrounding environment, creating a harmonious balance between the built and natural elements.


Orientation plays a vital role in energy efficiency. Proper orientation allows for optimal natural lighting and passive heating or cooling, reducing the need for artificial lighting and mechanical systems. Reynard Custom Homes consider the path of the sun, prevailing winds, and seasonal variations to design comfortable and energy-efficient homes.

Site preparation involves preparing the land for construction, including clearing, grading, and ensuring proper infrastructure. It sets the foundation for a stable and secure home and minimizes the risk of future issues. Careful attention to site preparation helps to create a safe, durable, and long-lasting custom home.


In summary, considering the function, placement, orientation, and site preparation when planning where to build a custom home is of utmost importance. Reynard Custom Homes understand the significance of these factors and work closely with clients to design and build homes that meet their vision and needs and seamlessly integrate with the natural beauty and functionality of the chosen site.
