Design Build or Your Architectural Plans

Custom Homes are as varied in style and structure as each client’s taste. We can build your desired home based on your architectural plans or through our Design-Build services. In planning your new home one of the first things you should consider is whether you will work with a custom home builder or a production builder. Both are great options and with each, you can acquire a good home for your family. The greatest difference will be in regards to how many individual choices you desire to make during the construction process.

Production home builders tend to build in a community with many homes and offer a limited selection of home plans to choose from with a limited choice of personalized options.  Whereas a custom home builder usually builds on an individual lot and creates a one-of-a-kind home based on the homeowner’s specifications.

See below information to help in choosing your home building option:

Production Builder

  • Can offer land and home as a package
  • Limited home designs
  • Set selection of options for products
  • Set pricing

Custom Builder

  • You choose the lot to build upon
  • You choose the floor plan by an independent architect or allow the builder to design one to your specifications
  • Each decision for all options are made by you
  • Pricing is dependent on your choices

Many believe that custom homes are usually large and expensive, but a custom home can be whatever size and shape you desire. As for the expense, your choices made for floor plan and the products installed are the driving factor. The key is to establish a realistic budget and stick to it. Many times unexpected costs can rise with unforeseen items with the land, septic, well, excavation and county codes. Make sure zoning and land restrictions are researched with your builder prior to starting to help avoid undesired surprises.

In regards to a production home, there is an opportunity for fewer surprises. The builder has done his homework on the property in which the community is being built and has fine-tuned the construction process. They know the building materials they will need and can lock into bulk pricing, making a production home an affordable option.

As an older couple, we needed a total conversion of our master bathroom into a handicapped accessible bathroom. From our first meeting, we knew we were dealing with total professionals. Our work started on the date stated and completed on the date stated. Each and every tradesman was accomplished, efficient and very kind. All our questions and concerns were addressed quickly. Our bathroom is functional and stunning. We are so glad we chose Owings.read more

My wife and I used Owings Brothers for several projects over the past six years. Initially, we interviewed 4 different contractors. Owings Brothers was the clear winner then and remains so. We no longer seek other bids. Their work goes beyond quality to true craftsmanship. They transformed our kitchen into a thing of beauty. Most recently, they remodeled one of our bathrooms. What was once old and drab is now shiny, beautiful, and very functional. We have at at least three more projects lined up for them in coming years. In addition to quality work, they have relationships with the top vendors for granite, tile, cabinets, and appliances. When a neighbor asked for our recommendation, we provided Joe Smith's number and email address at Owings Brothers. We would not consider using anyone else. They are like family.read more

We interviewed about a dozen contractors and firms to do our first floor and kitchen renovation in Silver Spring, MD. Owings Brothers was by far the most efficient, resourceful and transparent. We could not have made a better decision and intend to use them again for future projects. Owings Brothers uses a program called Co-Construct that allows you to keep tabs on the job from an app on your phone and a portal website through a browser on your computer. Everyone in their company is trained on using Co-Construct and all activity, purchasing, financials and progress is documented through this application. The foreman loads daily photographs of the work and all questions are answered through the app, so anyone participating in your project can see the documentation. You never have to wait for a response from the company and you can always log on to check on all activity with your account. Owings Brothers supplements this digital communication with a prompt text, email or phone call whenever needed. Our job took about 3 months and was completed on time. John, our foreman was exceptional. He communicated with us clearly, anticipated problems, kept his tradesmen on task and on schedule. His craftsmanship was great and he always left our house as clean and tidy as possible at the end of the work day. Once we got into the mindset of undergoing construction, it was as pleasant a situation as possible. John oversaw the job with obvious skill and knowledge. Also, Owings Brothers provides a warranty on all their work. This causes them to do it right the first time. If not, they’ll come out to tend to any repairs. Doing your homework and interviewing multiple firms will allow you to see how exceptional Owings Brothers Construction is.read more

From start to finish, our custom new home built by Owings Brothers Contracting, was done with great care and expertise. From the design phase, through the building process, our project manager, and each subcontractor carefully consulted one another, and us, to make sure each phase was done with excellence, and openness in communication and workmanship. As a family business, an atmosphere of open dialogue created flexibility within our floor plan, as well as careful progress planning each month during construction. Even as the job is completed now, we still experience careful followup of any additional changes or alterations, as necessary. The overall experience has been outstanding and my wife and I are grateful for such a beautiful and practical home. Thank you Owings Brothers!read more
