Can my builder help us if we don’t already own land?
Don’t worry if you don’t have land yet. Many of our customers did not own land before they came to us. In each of our building areas, we have valuable relationships with the real estate community which will be happy to help you find the perfect lot for your home.
What type of land do you build on?
The best part of being a custom home builder is that we build your home on the location of your choice. The location is up to you, in a rural setting, on a family farm, on a lake, in a development--- wherever you choose. Whether you currently own a site, are in the process of narrowing down your options or are just getting started – we can help you!
Will your team come out to evaluate my future home site to assure it is right for my new home?
Definitely! This is the best way to assure that your new home gets situated on your land the perfect way. We can also address any concerns or questions you might have about your lot before the actual building of your home takes place to make it as easy and carefree as possible. For example, even if the house location is set, you can still decide where to locate each room to get the best views, privacy, sunlight, and breezes.
Are the boundaries of the property clearly and accurately marked?
This is one of the most important questions to ask. If there is any uncertainty about the boundaries of your property, ask if a survey of the land has been done recently. A recent survey will be able to show you clear and up to date boundaries on your property. If it has not been done, we can help you complete this.
Will you handle my site work for me?
Unlike some builders that expect you to prepare your site and have it “build ready” before they start – we do all of that for you. Since every lot is different, we will estimate the costs involved to get your site ready for your new home, but you can rest assured: we will handle all the work.
