“We were very pleased with Don and Tom. If not one, then both Don and Tom were on the project daily. The whole planning of the house went very smoothly. The subcontractors were not only professional and friendly but their work was awesome! They approached their work as if they were working on their own home. They paid close attention to fine detail. They made excellent suggestions. Our house was finished on schedule in spite of the rain delays we had!”

Custom homes are one-of-a-kind homes that are built on your plot of land.

Most notably, building a custom home gives the homeowner complete freedom over the entire design of the home.
Spec Home Builders
A Spec Home Builder buys lots or land to build houses, and sell for a profit. are built by builders who buy a lot or land, build a house, and then sell the home. These homes are sometimes custom or semi-custom, but the design of the homes and its features are completely controlled by the builder.

Production or “Tract” home builders often build subdivisions. This is referred to as “model home” building, which are design to be built fast and are known to sacrifice quality. Model homes are built on pre-existing mass-built home plans that are not customized to the homeowner.
