Do you build custom homes?
we custom design and build each home.
many homes do you build a year?
A. The homes we build
require a lot of hands on participation to achieve a quality final
product. That said we can only build 4-5 homes in a twelve month
period and ensure the quality we are proud of.
How long have you been building homes?
A. We have
been designing and building homes since 1983
Q. What area of Dallas
do you build in.
primarily build in the North Dallas, Park Cities, Lakewood area but
we will consider other parts of town. At present we have a model home
in the Bluffview area.
much do your homes cost to build per foot?
A. That is a
popular question and a hard one to answer. Each home is different
depending on the cost of many items i.e. the land, foundation,
energy package, windows, doors, hardware, fixtures, appliances
and area under the roof. You name it and it effects the cost. Some
items add to the cost some save you money. But to answer the
question your new home can cost as little as 100.00 per foot and
350.00 per foot - not including the cost of the land
you have available home sites?
well sort of. The areas we build in are primarily older
neighborhoods going in a process of rebirth. The available home
sites are actually existing residences of which we remove and
replace with a new home. There is no shortage of existing houses for
sale in most neighborhood, thus we have available home sites.
you have a model we can visit?
A. On one hand I am
sorry to say we do not have any homes that can be viewed on the
other hand its not a bad place to be all things considered.
designs your homes?
A. I am responsible
for the design of all the homes.
you build green?
A. Yes, and I
hesitate because the term "Green" is so over used. Energy
saving features are designed into each of our homes. Everything from
lot selection, home orientation to overhangs that provide sun
protection as well as vent-able skylights, that act like chimneys to
remove hot air from the home. The unseen portions of our roof are a
light colored roofing material to reflect the suns rays. We also use
energy saving materials such as extra fiberglass insulation and foil
backed decking on our roofs, exterior wall cavities filled with
blown cellulous fiber, caulked wall plates and sealed holes in the
exterior walls to reduce drafts. We also use high s.e.e.r air
conditioning systems that are zoned with thermostatically controlled
you build greener?
A. Well sure we
could, but I seek a balance in product selection using cost to benefit
relationship. If a product offers a 20 year payback on investment I
am less likely to recommend its use then I would on a similar
product that offers a 3 year payback.
noticed your homes have flat roofs, should I be worried ?
A. There a lot of
things to worry about but flat roofs are not one of them. To start
the flat roofs are not really flat, the roof surface is is sloped to
allow for water drainage, the walls around the roof give the
impression of being flat. The construction of the roof consists of
several layers of water proofing materials. The roof is then topped
off with a rolled roofing material, similar if not identical to
regular shingles. The edges of this material are torched bonded to
each other to provide a weatherproof seal. With proper care
and maintenance our roofs should be trouble free for as ong or
longer than a traditional pitched roof not to mention better
What are the concept designs?
concept designs are ideas of homes we may be building in the future.
They are also to serve as starting points for custom designs.
you custom design homes for your buyers or do we pick from your
A. You can
select one of the concept designs or we can design a home
specifically to meet your needs.
don't live in Dallas but would like to own one of your concept designs?
A. Lucky for you
I offer design services contact me.
What length of time is required to build a
custom home ?
A. We can build a home in around 6 to 9 months but there are many
factors that can shorten or lengthen the construction process.
