Frequently Asked Questions
We are often asked questions about our homes and the process. You may have similar questions and below we have some of the answers for you. If you have any other questions, please feel free to Contact Us today.
WILL MY HOME BE STICK BUILT?
Yes. Our homes meet all the requirements for the state code, the same as stick built. The only difference is our homes are built in a controlled environment and then delivered to your lot and assembled onsite. The advantage is higher quailty and better pricing.
WHAT ARE MY FOUNDATION OPTIONS?
There is a choice of Crawl Space or Full Basement. We use ICF Foundations. ICF stands for Insulated Concrete Forms. Much more energy efficient than block or poured wall.
WHAT ARE MY GARAGE OPTIONS?
24′ x 24′ garage is standard. The Garage is site built after the house is set on the foundation. We can go up to any Depth of the garage.
