A little over a year ago my husband and I decided it was time to buy a new house since we had outgrown our current home. As we looked at listings online and walked through open houses, it became clear that we had differing visions of our ideal house- very frustrating. We did not consider building because I assumed it was much more expensive. Then it happened- we walked into one of Christian’s homes and we were both sold instantly. The only problem, it was above our budget and we weren’t prepared to make an offer right then. I contacted Christian and told him we really liked the house, but the timing wasn’t right to buy it… and asked if he was building another one with the same floor plan. He met with us in the house and let us know that we could build the exact floor plan on another lot, customized, for roughly the same price as the built house! Christian assisted us as we looked for a lot to make sure the plan fit well, he met with me and the designer as I made adjustments to the plan (added a 5th bedroom and large screened porch). He accurately estimated changes that would increase the budget or save us money. Christian stayed in communication with us months before we were ready to build. By the time we poured the foundation he knew our vision as well as we did! I cannot say enough about Christian’s excellent communication throughout this whole process. Any unresolved decisions were brought to my attention in advance. If anything was not done properly by the subs (a flickering shower light or a brick that dented the front door) Christian informed me of the issue and made it right. I am particular when it comes to craft and details. We have been in the house for 2 months now and we love it more each day.
We were warned by others about the stress of building your own home. Not true… they just didn’t have Christian.
