Building a Custom Home

Growing up, many of us were taught that homes were built better in the “good old days,” when old-world craftsmen built homes. But that’s a myth. Here’s the reality: New homes are far superior to those built in the past.

For new homeowners, this translates into benefits and advantages simply not available in a resale property. Here are some reasons that have convinced many to build new:

You Know What You Are Getting – You can watch your new home being built. There are no surprises when you move in. You know how the home was built and you know what is behind the walls. You also know how to operate and maintain your home’s equipment, and your builder is always there if you need help.

You Get What You Want – Why live with other people’s outdated designs or outlandish decorating? Why spend money redoing the previous owner’s so-called improvements? From the layout, to the cabinets and the flooring, new-home builders offer a wide selection of designs, floor plans and upgraded features. You get to pick and choose, customizing your new home to suit your personality and lifestyle. A new home, right from the start.

New Homes Are Built Better Than Ever – There have been tremendous advances in building technology. Building codes are significantly more stringent, and the design and inspection process is far more detailed than in the past. In addition to being much safer, new homes are also highly energy efficient, saving you money in lower energy bills. Indoor air quality can be substantially improved with new “green” products now available. Today, building products work better, last longer and often look much nicer.

At Scovell Wolfe & Associates, we have designed our organization with a “Customer First Philosophy”. The question, “what would the customer want?” drives our operations. From our years in the business and a desire to listen to our customers, we understand that the customers’ expectations will be fulfilled by a homebuilder who provides a quality product, honesty & integrity, open communications and flexible home designs.

We’ve built multiple homes from the ground up in the last decade and would be thrilled to share both our experiences and photographs of the projects with you if you find yourself interested in this custom home option. We’ve collaborated with several architects and designers and find building new homes to be some of the most satisfying and inspiring projects we work on.
