Planning a New Home

New homes -- especially custom homes -- are expressions of our needs, tastes, and priorities. Let us show you the latest building trends and how to fit these into your home or how to decide which features to put in your new home. We'll help you weigh the pros and cons and educate you on the newest technology and products in home building. If the process of choosing a lot and choosing a floor plan has you stressed, follow our guides and gain valuable insight into the biggest investment you'll ever make. While every home plan is unique and is designed to fit the needs of the homeowner, there is general planning and design rules to follow to ensure the home will work future owners often called Universal Design. Learn the best place to put the laundry room, whether open concept spaces are still "in, " and whether a tub, shower, or tub-and-shower combination is the best option. Building a new home is a huge task; let us guide you through the process.
