A NEW CUSTOM HOME

527 Edgar Rd, Custom built Craftsman style 2-story stone, frame and stucco

Building a beautiful custom home in the desirable neighborhood you love begins right here. From the beginning of our business, we have put our emphasis on building exceptional custom homes in great neighborhoods, using quality materials, and combining that with great customer service. Building a custom home is not for the faint-hearted. It will help you to have us on your side, walking you through each step and advising you, so that the end result is worth the effort. Explore this section of our site to learn more about how we can help you arrive at the home of your dreams for a great price.

The home shown above is a BenchMark custom home that has been very well received. The homeowners purchased this great 1/2 acre lot we offered for a custom build, across from a park in Webster Groves. They wanted a very energy efficient craftsman-style home and lots of custom organizational features for their young family.  We worked together with their architect to finalize the plan and the look. We used our expertise to situate the foundation so that the house would not sit too high on this reverse-walk-out lot, and tower unattractively over the street. As building began, the couple was involved with every single little detail of their house– nothing was selected for them. The finished home won a Homer award for Outstanding Value and Craftsmanship in a Custom Home.
