There are many moving pieces and steps that need to be taken in the right order. If something’s missed, or confused, the home you get won’t be what you envisioned.
First time building a home from the ground up? Not sure what’s going to happen?
Here’s our process:
A pre-built 3 bedroom house costs the same as a 3 bedroom home built uniquely for you.
So why buy something boring when you can live in your dream custom home?
Here are the main differences between a custom home and a pre-built one
You can change pretty much anything you want with a custom home.
Sure, some custom options are pricey. But there are so many options out there, we can guarantee we’ll find something within your budget that fits your vision.
A spec build sticks to its guns.
You won’t be getting anything different than what’s on paper, not unless you decide to spend MORE money and renovate later.

You know what happened? A huge mess was left behind, which slowed us down. Their subcontractors were only there to toss everything together and didn’t think of quality, which slowed us down even more because we had to fix the work they did.
As a result, the whole build took a lot longer than proposed.

For a complete list of materials that we’re comfortable with you supplying, please give us a call.
Any material you end up supplying isn’t covered by our builder warranty. We are always transparent, and always tell you what could happen if we use your material (maybe you brought in wood for the beams in your kitchen, and we could tell they were going to warp).
There are codes for everything when it comes to building a home. Energy codes, building codes, fire codes, etc. We know all of them, and won’t miss a single one.
