The magazine was part of Reed Business Information.[2] From January 2006, a seventh issue in April was added to their editorial calendar. Its sister magazine is Professional Builder.[3][4]

Common topics in the magazine include design ideas, business builder solutions, and innovations. In 2007, Custom Builder posted three webcasts in April, September, and November covering labor issues, green building and customer satisfaction.
