When purchasing a spec home, depending where we are in the building process you are able to make cosmetic upgrades and change orders. Such as, interior palette, lighting selection, appliance selection, and plumbing hardware. Only 2 items per palette may be altered from the list of available upgrades.
A spec home will turn into a custom home once you start changing the layout/floor plan of the home. Customs can be changed as desired. Such as, moving walls, creating new rooms, etc. We will then direct you to our architect who you can sign a contract with, and you can coordinate with them for these changes. You will also be required to sign a custom contract with MSH, as our plans cannot be built by any other builder.
The building process heavily depends on weather. At Murphy Signature Homes we estimate on average a spec home is built ~6 months, while a custom home is typically anywhere between 8 and 12 months.
Within the first 45 days of the building process clients are able to make changes dependent on what has been already ordered for the property. After the 45 days, the only changes a client is able to make are to the interior cosmetics (this is dependent upon what has already been ordered for the property).
