The Benefits of Custom Home Design

Commissioning a custom designed home over a pre-designed home is an important decision, with many benefits.

  • Your home will integrate seamlessly into your property’s landscape.
  • You can design the home around you and your family’s unique needs and lifestyle.
  • Materials and construction of a custom designed home are usually of a better quality than spec homes.

- S.Balsera, Tampa, Fl

We were looking to build a really spectacular home here. We purchased a lot on the Palma Ceia Golf Course.
We then set about to find an architect or residential designer. There were very few homes we saw that we liked.
It seemed all the truly well designed beautiful homes were designed by one man, Tom Lamb. We called Tom,
showed him the lot, explained what we had in mind and immediately knew he understood our dream and
would help us achieve it. He was a pleasure to work with... We would recommend him to anyone looking
to build a quality, beautiful home... His knowledge... creative insight and integrity were amazing.

Your website is amazing. I wanted to travel to see the Taj Mahal,
but now I don't have to, I can just visit your work.
