Planning and building a unique custom home that fits your family's needs takes time because so many variables exist, from the size and finishing details of the house to the weather. As a result, it is difficult to pinpoint the exact construction time at the beginning of a project.

We are always eager to complete a project in a timely fashion, but we never take shortcuts to complete work more quickly than it should take if done properly.
