Simplifying your Custom Home-Building Journey with Bentley Built

Building a custom home is a dream come true for many, but it often comes with a set of common struggles that can make the process overwhelming and stressful. At Bentley Built, we understand the challenges you may face when embarking on this exciting journey, and we’re here to help. Let’s explore the five common struggles people face when building a custom home and how Bentley Built can provide the support and solutions you need.

1.Overwhelming Amount of Decisions to Make

One of the most daunting aspects of building a custom home is the sheer number of decisions that need to be made. From the floor plan and materials to fixtures and finishes, the choices can seem never-ending. Without guidance, it’s easy to feel like you are going to drop the ball, or make a decision you’ll regret later.


In our process you will be assigned one of our expert project managers who work closely with you to streamline the decision-making process. We’ll help you prioritize your preferences, create a clear plan, and guide you through the choices that align with your vision and budget, ensuring a smooth and organized experience. You will also have access to an interior designer to help steer design decisions and ensure the overall look and flow match your vision and the style of your home. No detail is missed with us on your team!

2. Fear of Asking “Stupid” Questions

Many homeowners are afraid to ask their builders questions, fearing that their inquiries might be seen as uninformed. This fear can lead to misunderstandings and miscommunications, potentially impacting the project’s success. You do not need to have a thorough understanding of the construction process to build your custom home – this is where we come in. But, we can guarantee you will learn a lot along the way!


At Bentley Built, we encourage open and honest communication. Our team is dedicated to ensuring your concerns are heard and addressed promptly. You can ask any questions you have without hesitation, and we’ll provide clear and understandable answers to keep you informed and confident throughout the process.

3. Unaware of Options and Features Available

Staying informed about the latest construction materials, technologies, and design trends can be challenging. Without awareness, you may miss out on innovative and personalized features for your custom home. As with any industry, there are constant advancements that result in higher quality products and new features. It can be a full time job to try and keep up with the constantly changing world of construction.


We are at the forefront of industry advancements, and our team includes an interior designer who is well-versed in the latest trends and options. We can introduce you to cutting-edge ideas and guide you in selecting features that match your style and preferences. With our niche being energy efficient builds, the latest features we present to you not only include style and convenience, but also long-term savings and sustainability!

4. Vulnerability to Being Taken Advantage Of

Homeowners without construction knowledge can be vulnerable to contractors who can take advantage of their lack of expertise. This can result in inflated costs, subpar workmanship, and unforeseen issues. When embarking on your journey to build your dream home, it’s essential to have a team of experts who have your best interest at heart.


Bentley Built is committed to transparency and integrity. We provide detailed contracts and a team of professionals who are dedicated to delivering high-quality work. Our project managers work with our customers every step of the way to ensure that your project stays on track, on budget, and in accordance with your expectations.

5. Lack of Support for Design Ideas

With a multitude of design ideas available online, it’s often challenging to turn your vision into reality. You may know what you want, but are unable to find the right vision of it online. Even with inspiration, you could be missing crucial details on the functionality of your space while incorporating the key design features you want. Finding professionals who can work through these concepts with you can be equally difficult.


Along with our team of project managers, there is also an interior designer on your side throughout your building journey. We work closely with you to refine your design ideas, ensuring that they are not only aesthetically pleasing but also functional. We help you bring your vision to life, providing the expertise necessary to turn your dream home into a reality.
