Conduit for Future Wiring

Fishing a new cable or wire behind walls can be quite a process after a home is built.  It can be expensive too, especially if drywall repairs and fresh paint are involved.

We generally install several lengths of conduit in various locations during the construction of a new home.  Conduits can be buried in the ground, behind the drywall, or in the attic.

By installing conduit, you are free to change or upgrade wiring long after your home is done.

Defining a “Custom Home”

We are often asked “What is the difference between a custom home and a spec home?”.

When someone builds a custom home, the future home owner has full control over the design of the home and what goes in it.  A spec home is typically built by a builder before the future buyer is involved.  In a spec home, the builder chooses the style and finishes in the home.

As a custom home builder, our customers are involved in the process of creating their new home from start to finish.  We both design and build.  No two homes are the same.  Each home we build is unique for each customer we work with.

Design Plan

Designing Your Home

You’ve been dreaming of designing your home for years and now the time has finally come to build the home of your dreams.  A home that is uniquely you – designed specifically for you and your loved ones.  Our own experienced designer is ready to help you bring your dreams together, working out the details to make your custom home even more perfect than you ever imagined.

Our design process involves us getting to know you and your specific needs.  We spend time listening and looking at photos you’ve collected, or drawings you’ve sketched.  These help us learn more about you and your lifestyle.

Just a few of the many practical ideas we incorporate into our homes:

We will take the time to carefully walk your chosen property, then, with you, decide how to best situate your home to allow for natural lighting, convenient driveway and front door access, and scenic views.

We maximize on closet space and storage.  Our homes offer plenty of well lit and generous closets as well as hidden storage areas for organized living.  Ask us how to best design inexpensive storage space!

We minimize the length of hallways so you aren’t paying for unnecessary square footage.

If we are aware in advance of your vehicle sizes, we will endeavor to design garage space to accommodate your vehicle needs.

We’ll even ensure we design the space for parking RV’s, trailers, recreational toys and boats if space on the property permits.
