Pittsburg on your lot builder

If you are in the market for a new custom home in Pittsburgh this spring, you might find yourself with your dream lot and location, but struggling to find the right builder or a builder who will work with their chosen lot. Parry Custom Homes has become Pittsburgh’s On Your Lot builder for the very reason that we are able to build your dream home in your ideal location, on the lot you have already purchased.

Another great aspect of Parry Custom Homes being an On Your Lot builder, is the fact that we can also help find you a lot or a lot in the location that you want to build in, to take the stress and search out of your hands.

Building On Your Private Homesite

We make building on your private homesite easy and since we build throughout Western Philadelphia, we more than likely can build your dream home on your land. The first step in building your dream home on your lot is to come out and visit our showroom, or contact us and set up a time to meet with one of our employees in our showroom and design center so we can help you with your goals for your new house.

If you are still in the process of looking for land, we can still help get your plans in place and assist you in finding land that suits your needs. A few main things to consider when purchasing land are the following key elements:

  • School District
  • Township
  • Neighborhoods or Private Homesite
  • Homesite size
  • Lay of the Land
  • Utility Locations.

If purchasing land while starting the homebuilding process with us, we can help assist you along the way so you can understand all the possible costs that it will take to develop your property in your new homesite. We will also help you understand the permits and how you need to fill them out.

Choosing a custom homebuilder in Pittsburgh to build your dream home might seem like a daunting task, but Parry Custom Homes is the right choice for those who want an easy, enjoyable experience.

Making Your Bedroom In Your Parry Home The Perfect Retreat

The bedroom of your Parry home is the perfect place to retreat to and unwind at the end of the day. Parry Custom Homes, a premier Pittsburgh built on your lot builder, shares a few ways to convert the bedroom of your new home in Pittsburgh into a luxurious place by using fabrics, lighting and colors to create a bedroom that your dreams are made of.

The bed should be the focal point in the bedroom: In the bedroom, make the bed the focal point or a center stage. If you like to wake up early in the morning, have the bed closer to the windows in the room to wake up to the sunrise. Choose the most luxurious bedding that you can afford to make it inviting and a pleasant sleeping experience.

Use calming colors: To add a lavish look to the bedroom in your Parry home, go for nature inspired colors. These colors are both relaxing and refreshing. Use colors like green, blue, sand or tan and then also add these colors to your bathroom.

Incorporate multiple sources of lighting: The lighting used in the bedroom of your new home can make a lot of difference. Try to add recessed lighting along with side lamps for task lighting. A dimmer is another way to add light control that can change the mood from energetic to relaxing.

Add Sound: The trick is to create a right ambiance in the room with music that is relaxing and refreshes you. Add soothing sounds to the bedroom of your home to help you unwind at the end of a busy day.

Add fragrance: How your new Parry home smells is just as important as how it is designed. Just as the fresh air of spring rejuvenates you after being shut in during the winter, a pleasant scent can do that for your bedroom. A scent know to induce sleep is lavender. Look for this scent in incense sticks and oils and place them throughout the bedroom of your home. For an even more natural scent, use fresh flowers or nature inspired scents. This can truly make your bedroom a retreat.

Use these tips to create a tranquil and peaceful bedroom in your new Parry Custom home.
