Building from Afar

The Challenges

  1. We live in Central Florida, our primary residence; this home over 500 miles away.
  2. Immediately after purchasing our “million dollar view” lot, the economy went south, making it virtually impossible to locate any “comps” required to secure a loan in the dollar amount needed for the house plans we had chosen.
  3. I am a VERY visual person.

Solved: David, Brook and Andy worked very hard along with the appraiser in helping us to get our loan secured.

The Providence “family’s” expertise, guidance and coaching from the pre-ground and ground-up was part of our everyday experience, literally. There were very few days that went by without communication from them in some form: email, phone calls, mail delivery samples. Decisions that needed to be made were always presented in a timely manner so that there were no “haste makes waste” situations. Cost expectation was given much discussion—we were always given 3 price points to choose from. Budget was always a consideration and topic of conversation. Almost weekly we received emailed images of how our home was progressing. We were even given a hard copy picture album of our home in progress. We were only able to site visit our home 3 times during the 9 month “birthing” process. I never felt anxiety or lack of trust. With David’s engineering skills, Jimmie’s site skills, Andy’s people and organization skills, and their choice of top-level subcontractors, we actually had painless FUN.

Providence Custom Homes is what they say they are.

I am convinced that whatever you can dream, David can engineer it; whatever your construction problem, Jimmie can solve it; whatever your desired appointment for your home, Andy can make it happen.

Would we do this again? Absolutely, only if Providence Custom Homes will build it!
