There is a unique charm  that comes with building a custom home, especially here in Calgary. Although the architect or planner has a say in what logistically will work, the client's needs and wants
are the jumping off point for ideas and bringing a concept to life. If you are planning to build a custom home in Calgary, take a look at our 5 favourite Pinterest boards to spark some inspiration for lovely designs.

1. 'Staircases' by House Beautiful Magazine

  You don't have to have the largest, grandest house on the block to make a statement.

Staircases, for instance are an underrated feature that can completely change the look of a house. Take a look at some of these pins and consider asking your architect or planner to help you implement a custom staircase.
