1. Owner Builder
Being an owner builder does not require a contractor's license or years of home building experience, just a willingness to take on some supervision and management responsibilities for your own home. Over the years, many of our clients have realized significant savings as owner builders. It's easier than you think. Pre-manufactured components reduce construction time and require less on-site skilled labor.
Owner builders may get contractor pricing on materials, appliances, coverings and fixtures; virtually everything they need to build a beautiful home. We provide design and drafting support and a breakdown of costs to aid in obtaining financing. We may be able to assist you in choosing qualified, experienced subcontractors that have worked with us in the past, based on your build location.
The key feature of our owner builder program is our easy to use Home Framing Packages:
- Exterior Walls
- Interior partitions, millwork and cabinet packages
- Truss Packages
- Crane delivery (location dependant)
- On site supervision during set up (location dependant)
- Optional floor and deck framing (location dependant)
All Armstrong Home Frame Packages employ panelized construction. If you add siding, sheathing, and windows as part of your package, labor-intensive tasks are done at the manufacturing stage for greatest efficiency and accuracy.
2. Turn-Key Custom Construction
While owner-builder construction may be an option for some, others prefer to work with a builder who can build "turn-key,"on their lot. Turn key (link to custom homes) means we complete the project and turn over the keys to you when it's done.
You still provide the creative inspiration. Unlike buying a "spec" home, you select woods, fixtures, coverings, surfaces, lighting, and other custom home features before or during construction. It's your one of a kind creation and no one else's.
3. Remodeling and Additions
Over the years, Armstrong Custom Homes has transformed hundreds of older houses into spacious, modern homes with greater livability. Older homes come alive with additional living area, contemporary styling, new appliances and a "makeover" that turns an ordinary house into a stylish "like-new" home. Houses with classical appeal are remodeled with architectural consistency to preserve their heritage.
Bathrooms and kitchens are popular areas for remodeling. Similarly, small bedrooms with limited closet space can date a house and make it less valuable on resale. Remodeling and updating these areas makes a house a pleasure to live in and can add significant value to your home.
