Modifications

We understand that you may have plans, needs or ideas in mind that can’t be found on one of our ready-to-build designs. Whether you need more space or a different aesthetics, we are happy to work with you until you have the house of your dreams.

We offer modification services to tailor any design. Start by choosing a base design, then you’ll work with one of our expert home designers to make your requested additions or changes.

Some of more frequent home plan modifications include:

  • Move garage doors (usually front load to side load)
  • Add third car garage bay
  • Reverse plan
  • Foundation change (crawlspace vs. slab)
  • Add basement
  • Change exterior walls from 2’ x 4’ to 2’ x 6’
  • Change deck to screened porch
  • Add/remove square footage
  • Front elevation change (change exterior materials)
  • Change ceiling heights (e.g., 9’ to 10’)

This list only represents a few of the common revisions we’ve made to homes. If you'd like to discuss other options, please reach out to us and we'd be happy to provide an estimate for plan modifications.

There are plenty of reasons to want to have family together under one roof – but also plenty of reasons it can be challenging. A family that includes multiple generations needs a home that can handle a variety of ages and abilities – as well as the important needs for comfort, independence, and privacy.

Mark has been with us every step of the way. He has been a joy to work with, talented, personable, willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done."
