There’s nothing quite as exciting as coming to the decision to build your own home. Your house is most likely going to be the largest investment – or one of the largest investments – that you’ll make in your life.

You might be contemplating a change in your living situation. Maybe you want to expand your family, and your current space just won’t do. Maybe your last chick has left the nest, and you’re ready to settle into something a bit more practical. Whatever your needs, there is a custom-built Costa home for you. Continue reading
If you’re planning on building a home, one of the first decisions you must make is when to begin construction. Other builders might have you believe that there are certain times of year when it’s best to build. But the truth is, there’s really no specific time of year that’s best for building.
With a qualified builder, you should have no trouble having your home built no matter what time of year! Whether it’s summer, fall, winter or spring – you can build your home any time of year. Continue reading
If you have a very specific vision of what you want in your new home, you might find it hard to find a home on the market. But you shouldn’t have to compromise. Continue reading

Your kitchen is one of the most important spaces in your home. Poorly designed kitchen spaces aren’t efficient or functional for you and your family.

Building your own home is one of the most exciting and rewarding experiences of your life. Rather than looking at a handful of homes that were built for someone else, when you build a custom home, you have the opportunity to personally handpick every detail to match your own style, needs, and lifestyle.

One of the most rewarding aspects of building a custom home is the sense of pride you experience every time you pull into your driveway. While every detail of your custom home is planned to meet your needs and lifestyle, that first impression that the exterior of the home radiates from the curb is particularly important.
The curb appeal of a custom home not only impacts its resale value, it gives the home personality, extends the living space outdoors, and is the cornerstone of the homeowner’s pride in ownership.
This lot in Jefferson Hills is surrounded by lush land. Lots of greenery, tall trees and a natural pond. Such a gorgeous lot called for an equally gorgeous home! So, the owner got in touch with Costa to create a unique custom home that took full advantage of the beautiful surroundings. We worked alongside the customer and our friends at Naturescape to design an outdoor living space the family will love.
Some of the custom outdoor amenities this home features are:
- A salt water pool with an automatic cover
- A large patio complete with a fantastic view
- A waterfall feature on the natural pond
- An outhouse perfect for picnics
- A firepit with plenty of surrounding seating
Living in this home is like living in your very own park! There’s no shortage of outdoor activities to enjoy or nature to admire. And the best part? It was all custom designed to suit the homeowner’s lifestyle.
