Yes, we are approved with many lenders. We will gladly provide you names and contact information for them. We will also work with your own lender and apply for builder approval with them if you prefer.
Do you work with lenders who provide construction loans?
I have my own house plan idea, can you build it?
Of course. We can take your ideas and have them turned into a real set of plans or we can use the plans you have already paid for, to build from. However, if you haven’t designed anything yet, talk to us first. We include plans in our pricing and we likely get a better price on architecture than you will on your own. We can also make sure the project you are dreaming of fits your budget and your lot.
Can you customize your existing plans to meet my needs?
Yes! Most people make changes to our plans. They are just a guide to help you get started. For example, some of our plans have kitchen countertops that wrap around to enclose most of the kitchen. Most people now opt for a large counter height island instead to increase the open look and feel. You can make the plans bigger, smaller, add a bath or even a third or fourth garage.
How long does it take for you to build a house?
We are a smaller custom builder. We do not build a lot of houses at the same timeline most of our competitors do. We strive to build high-quality homes at a quick pace so that our customers can move in as planned. While there is not a set time, we generally take 6-8 months to build a house and for much larger or more complicated designs, 9-10 months. We are likely to be much faster than other builders that have similar pricing, simply because we can focus on your house and a handful of others rather than build 30-100 houses at a time.
Are you licensed and insured?
Yes. We are also a contractor owned and operated company. We do not use a “qualifier”. A “qualifier” is a contractor that lends his license to a company so they can legally operate. Not only is Casablanca Homes owned by a licensed contractor, he actually builds your house! We also carry General Liability, Builder’s Risk and Worker’s Compensation insurance as required.
What is included?
Check out our standard features on this web site. While we aren’t the lowest price in town, we are awfully close! Considering the huge number of features we include standard, we are easily the best value in the area.
Do you offer lots of design options?
Yes, we use several vendors and offer all kinds of tile, wood, cabinetry and more. For example, we offer over 20 styles of solid wood cabinetry standard!
Whom should I call about building a home?
Call 239-269-4001 anytime. We’d love to arrange a meeting or just talk about building and see if we are a good fit for each other. We think that after talking to us, you’ll feel comfortable and want to work with us. We do things differently and we are very nice in the process!
