We all remember the story of the ugly duckling. Oh come on, sure you do - the one where the little ugly duckling is magically transformed into a beautiful swan. Well, here's a real-life transformation story that has nothing whatsoever to do with ducklings or swans, but rather, with concrete. (Which can't float nearly as well as an ugly duckling, but can be made beautiful.)
Not long ago, nondescript gray concrete was relegated to some pretty limited, ugly duckling like uses: primarily drab foundations, basements, sidewalks and driveways. Today, concrete has come into its own - with limitless faces and countless applications.
After selecting a home plan from our extensive plan collection, call us and you'll work with one of our designers to tailor the plan to make it perfect for you. The result--a true custom home plan at a fraction of the time and cost of starting from scratch.
It's a collaborative approach. You tell us what you like about the plan and what needs to change. Since you're working with a designer, you're not on your own when it comes to figuring out how best to modify the plan. Don't be surprised if we ask other questions. As leaders in the industry, we have the knowledge and experience to identify design features and amenities you may not have been considering, but would love to have in your new home!
