We believe our many years of experience building in the Houston area is our single biggest asset. We have managed the design and construction of hundreds of homes, of many architectural styles and sizes, over the years and have built homes in many of the finest neighborhoods in the greater Houston area.
We want each of our clients to fully participate in the design of their dream home. Each project should be beautiful, energy efficient, utilize state of the art technologies, have the finest materials of construction and should also be built with an eye towards future resale value. Ultimately, our clients decide upon and approve every aspect of their home, but we always recommend elements of the home that will ensure future resale value.
We strive for complete transparency in our process and believe that our clients should know where each dollar is being spent, should they wish. We utilize a state of the art project tracking and communication tool to manage our projects. See the demo on our home page at www.jhcustomhomes.com. This tool is used to communicate with our clients from the initial design phase activities throughout the project and is continued to be used throughout the warranty period. The tool is used to post pictures of the home, the construction budget and schedule, any change orders, warranty issues, etc.
We obtain competitive bids on each project that we do. This provides assurances to our clients that they are getting the lowest possible pricing from reputable subcontractors. Further, the volume of business that we do enables us to deliver our homes at lower prices than most builders in this market.
We work with many leading local architects and home designers. Our on-staff interior designer is part of every project from start to finish to contribute to the functional design of the home and to guide the selection of the many choices in finishes. We have participated in many Showcase Events and Street of Dreams Tours, yet also have participated in a LEED Accredited "Green Home" Project. Each project is a collaboration between our clients, us and the design team that we select for each project. We always welcome the opportunity to work with the top professionals in the custom home industry should our clients have preferences in these areas.
Every home should be beautiful, inside and out. However, for us, the inside includes what is inside the walls, the parts of the home that make them livable, from a comfort and entertainment perspective, as well as the energy efficiency of the home. We address energy efficiency at many levels, including different methods of insulation, window location and selection, landscaping, roofing materials, HVAC design and efficiency, and integration of all components into home automation systems.
The selection of your builder is a very important decision and should not be done hastily. We welcome the opportunity to get to know you, explore your ideas on your dream home and to provide our guidance in the design and construction of your home. A typical project, including design and construction, can often take nine to twelve months, or more. You should take the time to get to know the builder you are considering working with on such an important endeavor.
