Buying a custom home is a fantastic experience. In the end, you get everything you need. After all, it’s designed just for you! However, when looking at custom home advertisements, they’re always catering to the average professional. What about those of us who prefer a life of activity over sitting in an office? Sports enthusiasts and professional athletes need look no further than Toronto’s leading construction company, Heidan Construction, to find custom homes they love. Let’s take a look at what “custom home” can mean for someone like you.
Amenities for Activity
For those who just enjoy a bit of activity in their daily lives, there are amenities that support that. For example, an indoor or outdoor pool is a great way to relax and stay active. Swimming is one of the most underestimated forms of exercise. Taking a dip in the pool may be relaxing because it takes the edge off of gravity, but it also works every muscle in your body.
Indoor pools are great for year-round use, privacy, and ease of upkeep. They also offer the opportunity to install a pool heater. Outdoor pools, however, are more seasonal, require a bit more upkeep, and are less private. However, they come with the benefit of letting you relax in the sun or take a dip in the moonlight. If you enjoy being outdoors, an outdoor pool might be the better option.
Custom homes for athletes bring comfort to games often played outdoors or at the gym. Enjoy a nice game of racketball? How about a game of basketball with the familiar squeak of the wooden court flooring under your shoes? Trade in outdoor, paved courts for a private basketball court attached to your home.
Without the need for high tech scoreboards and bleachers, indoor basketball or racketball courts aren’t actually hard to make. The most expensive part of them is the space they occupy. If you want an indoor court that you can use at any time of year with comfort, you can have it. If money is no object, you can even opt for those fancy accessories like the electronic scoreboard!
Indoor Gym and Luxury Bathroom
Leisure and games are a favorite to many. But, they’re not the only way to stay active. If spending some time each day lifting weights or running in comfort is what keeps you feeling good, an indoor gym is exactly what you need.
Anyone can throw a treadmill and some dumbbells into a spare bedroom. But, can they create an extension of their home that feels just like their own private gym? If you’re working with Heidan Construction, you can.
Not only can you cancel your gym membership and remove the commute from your schedule, you can do it in luxury. After all, an in-home gym isn’t half as great if the gym bathroom is as oppressive as a public one. Instead, attach a luxury on-suite to your personal gym. Sweat it out in a built-in sauna. Refresh yourself in an open-concept shower with multiple showerheads and a bench to recover on. Relax those tense muscles in a soaker tub. There’s no wrong way to feel luxurious after working out.
