Building your own house in Marin County offers the opportunity to have the home of your dreams and isn't necessarily as expensive as you might think. There is a common misconception that building a custom home costs more that purchasing an already existing house. While this can be the case, it isn't automatically true. There are many factors involved in building a custom home in Marin, and the bottom line will depend on the choices you make.
Should you decide to have an architect design your home, your costs will probably be a bit higher than if you go with a modern prefab home, but you will have the perfect house for the lot you choose. Every feature of your home can be designed to suit your taste and needs, and the plan can be specifically suited to your Marin property, whether it be a waterfront lot with bay views, a wooded estate, or rolling ranchland.
