Frequently Asked Questions
These are some of the most common questions we answer. If you have questions of you own, contact us and we'll be happy to answer them. Also take a look at some of our customer testimonials.
Do you build in different neighborhoods?
Yes. The center of our building activity is West Knoxville / Farragut. We build in other areas within a reasonable drive time that permits us to supervise the construction properly. We serve our clients better by supervising better.
We will evaluate different sites, and different neighborhoods, to help select the right one for you. Perhaps you have a neighborhood or a lot already selected. Either way, we will adjust your quote to each site, and make recommendations concerning the suitability of each one.
What options can I include in my home?
Your home will be fine tuned. We offer a long list of options with prices. You may ask for some one-of-a-kind features too. Each option is separately itemized and priced in our quotes, which allows you to choose each item separately. You are not required to choose a pre-selected package of options.
With so many options, how do you make sure nothing is overlooked?
Every home we build has a unique set of plans designed just for that client. Everything is on the plans- down to the details.
When it comes time to select finishes and colors, we make it simple by guiding you through each step- making suggestions so you don't miss anything- letting you choose. We have extensive checklists to be sure nothing is missed and it's all written down.
How is the construction financed?
We do it various ways, depending upon the needs of the client. Often times the client saves money by doing a construction-to-perm loan.
What if I have a house to sell first?
We often do contracts contingent upon your home selling. This often permits us to draw the floor plans including all your options and changes. When your existing home sells, the plans are already completed. This saves a lot of time getting started with construction. Sometimes a contingent contract also permits you to reserve your lot.
I've heard that building a home can be difficult. Is it?
Difficult custom homes are caused by a combination of poor pre-planning, a disorganized or poorly supervised building process, or building without a fixed price. Our clients will tell you that we provide a smooth and pleasant process, and that they had none of these problems. References are provided upon request.
