Custom Built Homes Even Retirees Can Afford

 

When you decide to build a home you can choose whether it’s in a gated community or not, if it’s on a golf course, or backs up to a pond, or maybe has a nature preserve behind it. You even get to choose how your home is oriented to where the sun rises and sets. If it’s important to you to have early sunshine and late day coolness then that will help you decide just where to build your home in a community. We understand that these are details that matter.

Deciding to have a home built from the ground up gives you the opportunity to select from more than 30 popular floor plans. You’ll be able to choose your own hardwood flooring, cabinets, lighting fixtures, plumbing fixtures, granite countertops, appliances, ceilings (tray ceilings, flat, vaulted, coffered, cathedral, 9’, 10’, etc.), exterior building materials, color of exterior, location of the gas grill or outdoor summer kitchen, backsplash tile, carpeting color/style and much more. Having a say in these details will make a difference in how much you like your home when it’s completed.
