“Joe and his team did an amazing job on my addition. The quality of the work is what impressed me the most, top notch craftsmen. It was a pleasure working with all of them. Highly recommend Owings Home Services.”
Linda McArthur

“We’ve been through several phases of construction with Owings Brothers over the past 5 years and I really can’t express enough our level of satisfaction. Every person we’ve dealt with in the organization has been professional, honest and prompt. The communication throughout each project was great and we’ve always felt like we were their only customer. There’s something to be said about that local family business, and Owings does it right. They have a customer for life with us. I’m only giving 5 stars because 6 stars is not an option!”

Bryan Glover

“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.”

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.
