Benefits of Building From the Ground Up

When shopping around for a new home, you might wonder whether you should choose a quick move-in home or build a home from scratch. Orchard Ridge offers both quick move-in homes and the option to build from the ground up, so no matter what’s right for your situation, you can still enjoy everything this new home community in Liberty Hill has to offer. Here are some of the benefits of building a new home to consider, so you can make the right choice for you and your family.


Being able to customize your design and floor plan is one of the biggest benefits of building a home from scratch. At Orchard Ridge, you have five different builders to choose from: CastleRock Communities, Dream Finders Homes, GFO Home, Lennar and Pacesetter Homes. Besides just choosing your ideal builder and floor plan, you also get to choose your preferred lot, which can make a huge difference. Be close to the amenity center, on a cul-de-sac or even next door to family or friends!

Once you have your builder, floor plan and lot picked out, the real fun begins – choosing all of the details and designs that make your vision a reality! From the floors to light fixtures, cabinets to backsplash, you can personalize your new home to perfectly suit your taste and lifestyle. Some floor plans even have options like an extra bedroom, home office, covered patio and more so you can have a home that’s just right.

Emotional Appeal

When you build a brand new home, you get to experience the entire process from start of finish. Watching your home go from being an empty lot to the house you’ve always wanted can make it feel real, and even more special for your family. It’s something you’ll never forget, and you’ll only have this experience when building from the ground up.

Lower Maintenance

New homes often require less maintenance and management than pre-existing homes, which could even require immediate repairs. Brand new homes also typically come with features like better insulation and smart home technology that can help you manage your utility bills, which is great for the environment and your wallet!

At Orchard Ridge, you can build your dream home and relocate to an area that offers access to great schools, employment hubs and so much more. To learn more about this new home community in Liberty Hill, Texas, join our Interest List.
