Custom built AND one-of-a-kind homes

When we say that we are an Omaha custom home builder, we really mean it. We don’t sell “X” number of floor plans. We don’t take a base plan and modify it to suit your needs.

We actually build a custom home that starts with your #someday vision and a blank piece of paper. Our homes are one-of-a-kind.

While every home has a master suite and a kitchen, it’s how these little nuances are developed that makes Curt Hofer & Associates homes truly original. We’ve designed indoor shooting ranges, created specific rooms for pets, implemented wine cellars and theatre rooms, built a CrossFit gymnasium within a garage–even built indoor basketball courts beneath garages.

People want a sense of whimsy, character, or a surprise element–beyond purely functional–that makes their home special and unique. So we thought we’d share a few of these customizations to already one-of-a-kind homes.

The viewing room

This particular client knew that they would have this amazing view from their property, so they wanted a place to view the river valley–in panoramic. So we created this room just for that purpose! The spiral staircase (bottom, left) comes from his office up to this viewing room–specially built and designed for the sole purpose of viewing. The room was literally added on to the home!

Fireplace with a view

When your home sits along a river, you might as well bring the river indoors! Marshall designed the great room of this riverfront home with 2 see-through fireplaces so that the homeowners could sit in the great room and see the view of the river through the fireplaces! This particular home is modeled after Frank Lloyd Wright–very Prairie-inspired architecture. (Head over to our Portfolio to see more images from this home!)

Swim-up bar

The pool isn’t just a place to swim anymore! Our clients brought the vacation feel of a swim-up bar to their own backyard!

In order to make it comfortable from both the pool side as well as the outdoor kitchen side, we had to design the bar/kitchen in a sunken manner. This made the seating outside the pool equally as inviting, too.

Final thoughts

When you’re beginning the process of choosing a custom home builder, knowing exactly how a builder’s process works is one of the most important pieces of knowledge you need to gain. Here at Curt Hofer & Associates, we are very transparent with how our process works and what you can expect–from design to construction to maintenance and beyond. Your #someday is waiting–we’re here to make it happen.
