How long will it take to build our home?
Construction of your home depends on many variables such as weather, labor, materials, inspections, Homeowner Association approvals (if applicable), size of home and customizations. Typical home construction takes 6 – 8 months from start to finish.
Does it cost more to build on my land or in a community?
This depends on the community and the condition of the homesite.
When building on your lot, the homesite needs to be prepared, utilities need to be established or modified, soils need testing, additional permits or approvals are required, and labor is more costly building just one home.
In a community that is in the development stage, the developer has already prepared the land, and installed utilities. In addition, soil testing, permits, plan designs all are engineered just once and typically several homes are built at the same time reducing overhead and labor costs.
The good news is we can build your dream home at your chosen location that is just right for you!
Where do you build?
Generally speaking we can build within 50 miles from the center of a major metropolitan area; Austin, Houston, San Antonio. Depending on your specific situation we may be able to extend that distance based on several factors. Please see your sales representative for more specific information.
