Challenging topography, flood zones and odd shaped lots can potentially increase your building costs, but they can be inspiration for a unique home with stunning outcomes.
Needs vs Wants
Save time and money by having a list of must haves like the number of bedrooms, bathrooms, gathering space and the size of the kitchen are a good start. Budget will dictate some of these choices and of course finishes can make or break the bank so choose wisely and be flexible.

Our plans can be built by any reputable builder. Take time to tour model homes, research potential builders and ask for references. You may find one company feels like a better fit for your project.
Flexibility Equal Savings
Keeping an open mind to new products and switching grades of finishes can help you stay on budget. This isn’t always a bad thing. New products can perform better and cost less in some cases.
