Features and geometry - yes. You get to design it how you want if you're making it.

Execution - no. People who build production frames are professionals. Yes, quality varies, but at the mid- to high-end of production you are looking at career welders and fabricators who practice every day and have access to lots of fancy tooling. As a homebuilder you don't have the experience or resources to match that.
