Select your standard architectural options. Watch the video to see which standard options are available with this plan. (We can customize any plan if you have other features in mind).
These features and methods are INCLUDED in the price of your home; every home we sell includes the following STANDARD features:
A warranty admin pro will be assigned to field all of your warranty needs
Because the foundation is the most important part of the structure of your home, we take extra care to ensure it is engineered and constructed to fit your particular site. The engineer will use soils tests performed on your lot to tell us exactly how deep the beams need to be, how much reinforcement the foundation requires, and where the cables need to be placed. Then we will produce a foundation plan designed specifically for your site.
You will find some details on our foundation plans that are not included in other plans, this is because we don't take chances with your investment
Next, we will ensure the foundation is installed according to the plans, and the engineering firm who designed it will return to verify as well.
This covers structural failures to the foundation or the frame of the home.
All structural components are inspected by licensed inspectors, including the foundation, walls, roof and floor system.
Roof trusses are engineered and built in a controlled facility.
The 2-year warranty covers water and sewer pipes, electrical wiring, and heating and air conditioning systems.
We partner with trusted name brands such as:
Radiant Barrier decking reflects the sun's heat off of the roof and keeps the attic up to 20 degrees cooler
Low-e Vinyl windows filled with argon gas reduce heat gain in the summertime
14-SEER Lennox hvac with sealed plenum cools efficiently
R-38 Attic insulation
At every stage of construction we perform a detailed standardized inspection of each component, and any defects are quickly corrected and re-inspected for compliance.
A professional, full-time warranty representative will be assigned to you upon closing of your home. Your warranty pro will handle all of your warranty requests and will help you coordinate any work required in a timely manner.

If the lot is treed or has brush, clearing will need to be done; and grass and organics will be scraped away and hauled off in order to remove any elements that can decompose and cause the soil to shift over time
If the lot is sloped, more tractor work and fill dirt is needed to build a flat pad site for the home to sit on
For sites with a lot of slope, sometimes a retaining wall is required, so the grade of the soil can be stepped down.
For sites without water connections provided by a city or co-op. Local drillers will know how deep the wells in an area typically run so the cost can be estimated ahead-of-time.
A quick soils test can be performed to determine which type of waste system is required: a leach system or an aerobic spray system.
If there is no driveway on site, 1" recycled concrete can be laid and compacted by a tractor, and can be used as a temporary or permanent drive. Finish material like gravel or concrete can be laid over it if desired.
Some counties or roads will require a culvert - a steel pipe running through concrete encasement, in order to allow water to pass through the bar ditch and underneath the drive.
4" concrete with steel reinforcement is the most common exterior paving material.
In order to keep the soil around the foundation from drying out, a drip system around the house is always a good idea. In addition, a full automatic sprinkler system with a rain sensor can be designed.
Sod options include Bermuda, saint augustine, and hydro-seed.
2" of top soil can be added for additional soil nutrients if desired.
The electric service line will need to be trenched and run to the house where the meter base will be installed. Some power providers include this service in their budget for new service, and some do not. If it is not provided, the electrician will need to trench and run this line.
Some well water will require a water softener and possibly filtration. The water can be tested to determine the alkalinity and the mineral content.
If gas cooking, heat or hot water is desired, and no natural gas is piped to the site, then a propane tank and service line can be added. The tank can be buried underground or set on top of the ground, with a regulator and supply line into the house.
