Ten Reasons to Build with Ten Oaks Homes

1.) FULLY CUSTOM. With Ten Oaks Homes, you can experience a fully custom homebuilding process – from the exterior elevations to final trim details, we want to build YOUR dream home! Why buy a house plan that’s been around for decades when you can design to fit your family’s life style with open floor plans, expansive mudrooms, vast storage, and exquisite owner’s suites? Need help getting started with your design? We can help – browse our idea books and portfolio homes!

2.) WE ARE ALSO THE DEVELOPER. There is seamless integration between buying the lot and starting construction on your home because Ten Oaks is also the developer. As the developer we are able to control the quality and curb appeal of each house site in the community. From entry feature lighting details to the caliper of the street trees, we make sure your neighborhood is as beautiful as your home.

3.) PERSONAL TOUCH. Our small team of five has decades of experience building exquisite custom homes.  On any given day, you can easily access our superintendent, director of construction or one of the Ten Oak’s owners. We do not want to build dozens of homes a year.  Your project is special to us and deserves our daily attention.

4.) SAVE ON CLOSING COSTS. Save on transfer and recordation tax when you buy your lot first, build second. Because your lot price is less than your house price, you’ll save on transfer and recordation expense, this savings can exceed $10,000!

5.) FINANCE AND CLOSING. At your request, we will connect you with industry leading mortgage lending and title companies. Have your own lender or title company? That’s fine too, we want the process to be as easy as possible allowing you more time to spend on your home’s design.

6.) TRUTH IN ADVERTISING. Our “starting” price is often very close to our final price. Real exterior stone, solid core interior doors, granite countertops, and much more are not upgrades – they’re included in the base pricing for our off the shelf home plans!

7.) TRANSPARENT ALLOWANCE PRICING.   We will custom make a budget to fit your needs. Because we’re custom, we will allocate a responsible allowance for major design categories such as flooring, cabinets, patios, etc.  Your dollar goes further with Ten Oaks because the subcontractor’s price is the price you pay.

8.) #SHIPLAP. We are Houzz, Pinterest, and HGTV junkies! Often a picture from one of these great websites can save time and money agonizing over design decisions. Rule number one when building a house with us is sign up for a Houzz account and start sharing your ideas with us! Drop key words “Chip and Joanna Gaines” to make instant friends!

9.) APP FOR THAT. We are efficiency geeks always looking for ways to communicate better, expedite construction timelines, and reduce costs.   Using Buildertrend™ software we can share progress pictures, change order submittals and approvals, and facilitate coordination with our subcontractor team. Tracking your custom build has never been easier.

10.) ON YOUR LOT. Like our team but already have your own lot? No problem, we can also build on your lot!  Our in-house civil engineering and land development experience can be leveraged to help evaluate your perfect building lot, layout your home, obtain access permits and generally be a reference guide through the site selection and development process.
