You are set up with our in house design team that attends all selection appointments with our vendors. We can even do 2 and 3D renderings to help you envision your space.
I have heard horror stories about building, so why would I?
Communication, expectations and honesty are key. Nathan spends more time on the planning stages than most builders to make sure you understand the cost, time commitment and what affects the schedule. If it sounds too good to be true then it usually isn’t.
What is the worst thing that has gone wrong during the construction?
Floods! Weather is something no one can control and is the number one thing that can mess up the schedule.
Where can I see your floor plan?
Setting up an appointment with Nathan and design team is the best way to see the floor plans we have done before. Custom homes generally start from scratch with our plan drafter.

Is there a home warranty?
Yes, there is a one year Builder Warranty plus the manufacturers warranties. Our home warranty is all done in house and not with a 3rd party.

What is the difference between fixed cost and cost plus?
Fixed cost home with allowances is the best way to keep you in budget. If lumber or concrete go up then you aren’t responsible for that cost. Cost plus makes you responsible for the rising costs of materials and labor. It isn’t in the clients best interest to do cost plus.
