Whether your family is growing, the kids are getting older, or you need to accommodate multiple generations under one roof, there comes a point when you just know you need more space — and sooner rather than later. Whether it’s too many bodies going in and out of the fridge in a small kitchen, the need for more separation (i.e. peace and quiet), or not enough outdoor space to relax and let the kids run free at the same time, there’s bound to be at least one nagging sticking point about your current home as your family changes.
At Value Build Homes, we get it. That’s why we build custom new homes throughout North and South Carolina that are flexible, spacious on the inside and out, and can comfortably accommodate all your family members (and their stuff!) now and into the future. If you’re looking for a new home that’s perfect for your changing family, here are a couple of features you should always look for:
Flex Space: Whether you need a dedicated space for homework, a game room for teens, or a serene yoga room for yourself, it’s critical to have a bit (or a lot) of extra space that can be configured in any way you need, and can change in the future. We have several floor plans that offer flex space like the loft in the Montgomery, the game room in the Yadkin, or the den in the Calhoun.
Open Living Area: One way to make sure growing families spend time together is to have enough space to accommodate everyone in one area. Whether it’s for a sit-down family dinner or a low-key movie night, memories are made when you’re all together.
Spacious Primary Suite: Between work and family, you’ve got a lot going on. Hang on to your sanity with a private, spa-like retreat. Whether you design your primary bedroom suite to be upstairs or down, it should be large and luxurious so that you get the peace of mind and rest you deserve.
Customizable Plans: Just because a floor plan you like has a certain number of bedrooms drawn in black and white, that doesn’t mean that’s how you need to use the space. Find a plan that allows you to move walls around, or take them away, and add the features to the space that work for you.
Value Build Homes offers dozens of new home floor plans that you can build throughout North and South Carolina, that can be customized to suit you and your family — however you live. Here are a couple of examples of how our New Home Designers have designed homes around their customer’s lifestyles:
“Went with the Nash plan because the included third and fourth bedroom was the perfect space to convert to an in-law suite. We whited out the space, and redesigned it to have a separate entrance, kitchenette, living room, bathroom, walk-in closet, and of course, bedroom. The in-laws love it!”

“My customer needed a ranch-style home that would be perfect on the lake. They wanted the family room, dining room, and master bedroom to be built at the rear of the home facing the water since that is where they will be spending most of their time. Since they are both photographers, they also needed an area with lots of natural light to spread out photos from the last 30 years. We also added a basement to store watercraft when not in use.

“A customer I am working with works third shift, so when he is sleeping when everyone else is starting their day. They needed the primary bedroom to be as far removed from the noise and activity as possible so that it would be nice and quiet when he is sleeping. We chose the Yadkin plan, which has an upstairs loft and bedrooms where the kids can spend their time. None of the kids’ spaces are above the primary bedroom, so no worries about hearing little footsteps while he gets his rest.
