If you have your heart set on building a custom home, the first step is finding a lot to build on. In Baton Rouge, that can be a challenge as there just aren’t that many residential lots available. It might take a little creativity to find the right lot to build your dream home, but there are opportunities out there. You might be surprised to find a lot in a mature neighborhood. Or, in some of our older and very desirable neighborhoods, you might find a home that’s a “tear down.” And, there are new subdivisions where you can buy a lot and select a builder.
Here are some searches to help you find what you’re looking for.
You may have a project in mind that doesn’t conform to subdivision restrictions. If so, then you might want to build your dream home on a rural tract. There are some available in places you don’t expect. Take a look. Perhaps they’re a better fit for you.
Building a custom home is a significant undertaking. It can be fun and creative, a realization of a dream, or the lifestyle you’ve always wanted and planned for. It all starts with the land.
