At Capstone Custom Homes, we pride ourselves on the impressive scope of features that we include with every build. From water-saver faucets to our locally-made custom cabinets, we offer many features that you won’t find with other builders. That being said, we’re more than happy to help new homeowners with desired upgrades — especially ones that help them stay warm and comfortable in the winter.


Few things are cozier than gathering around the warm glow of a fireplace. Ohio winters can get quite cold, so fireplace owners always get plenty of use out of this upgrade! We primarily install natural gas fireplaces, which are available in a wide range of configurations to fit your floor plan and desired aesthetic.

Tankless Water Heater

Ever find yourself running out of hot water during the winter? A tankless water heater can ensure that you’ll always have warm water, while reducing energy costs at the same time. Rather than holding heated water in a storage tank, a tankless water heater uses a heat exchanger that warms cold water as it flows through the unit. Hot water is available on demand, without the maintenance and energy consumption concerns of a standard unit.

Finished Basement

When temperatures drop below freezing, your family probably doesn’t have much motivation to stay inside! Because of this, some families choose to finish the basement so they’ll have extra usable square footage during those cold winter months. The basement is the perfect place for a rec room, home theater, or other features to keep you entertained when it gets too cold outside.

Make this the last winter that you spend in a cold house! With the right combination of included features and winter-focused upgrades, a new home from Capstone Custom Homes will be the perfect place for your family to enjoy during all four seasons.
