Southgate Homes is known for trend-setting design that is both stunning and functional. Our award-winning designs offers both flexibility and luxury. We are flexible about meeting specific requests on the standard floor plans and will also design a custom home entirely from scratch. Most importantly we are a full service builder- we are there from the start to finish to help guide you through your home building experience. We have a dedicated staff of employees who are experienced and know how to make this process seamless for you.
Mechanic’s lien contract are often necessary to secure construction on an “off-site” project (build on your lot); or a project that involves significant changes to an existing plan in one of our communities. The buyer gets financing in full up front, and draws are made throughout the construction process to cover the cost of the home.
Currently we do not offer remodels. We do however offer a complete tear down and re-build on your lot if we deem it within our buildable reach.
Residential structural engineers have specialized knowledge and training to calculate forces. Here at Southgate, we use a third party engineer to design and inspect the foundations and framing.
New home construction at Southgate, fall under the purview of the City’s building inspection schedule (city inspections, quality control inspections and your own buyer walk-through inspections), as well as a variety of warranties. While it is not a necessity, you may hire a third party inspector. We do require that the report is obtain and disclosed to your on-site construction manager in a timely fashion so as not to cause delays.
Each of our communities offer a number award-winning plans that have been designed for our specific lot size and that have already gone through an extensive approval process. Our plans offer a wide variety of pre-planned options that have been tailored over time to meet the changing needs of our buyers which allows them to “personalize” their home to best match how their family lives. In select communities, we do have the ability to make minor structural changes that will require additional earnest money deposits.
It depends entirely on the scope of your home. Every home is different from the last, therefore we cannot deliver an exact time frame for construction. The building starts as soon as we have approved plans, design options selected and city permit. From the moment the shovel hits the ground, a typical build time is 7-9 months. Full custom Homes and homes over $1 million can run 12-18 months.
At Southgate Homes our goal is to build you a home that delivers a lifetime of enjoyment with long term value. Therefore, our warranty is administered by StrucSure's 1-2-10 Home Buyers Warranty Program.
Building a new home is an exciting process. Your safety and safety of others is our top priority. A site visit can be scheduled with the on-site Construction Manager.
