Building Quality Relationships with Trust
From conception to completion, building a custom home can often take many years to complete. An environment of honesty and trust goes a long way to ensuring a successful and enjoyable project for our clients. Through open and interactive communication, we are able to ensure that all parties are working toward a common goal. This commitment to building long lasting quality relationships with our clients, trade partners, business associates, and employees is one way we differentiate ourselves from the rest.
Building to the highest quality standards possible is our ultimate goal for any project we undertake. This entails project specific selection of our vendors and subcontractors, enforcing strict project specifications, and constantly monitoring the procedures and methods being used on every house we build. This hands-on approach is the only way to ensure quality from the ground up.
A true custom home is meant to reflect the taste and lifestyle of you, the homeowner. It is our job to understand that style and work judiciously to deliver an elegant and distinctive home that compliments you. We partner with you and your architect to help design a home that will fit your family’s unique needs. Our extensive experience as a custom homebuilder allows us to advise and protect you from unwise choices or unnecessary expenses that detract from the pleasure of building your dream home.
We are committed to developing a plan to accommodate your desires while still delivering a competitive price. We will work with you to discuss and contemplate the cost and efficiencies of different design and structural solutions. We strive to build the best home possible while delivering a home that is affordable, efficient, and low-maintenance.
It seems so simple, yet so often it seems to be forgotten. It can be as easy as showing up on time or returning phone calls promptly but so often it seems these courtesies are forgotten. These “little” annoyances could really build up over the course of time it takes to build a house and really leave a bad taste in a customer’s mouth. We take great pride in remembering what it means to be a professional and reminding our employees and subcontractors how important it is to conduct themselves as such everyday.
