The trend in home building over the last 30 years has been to keep building bigger homes. The sad reality is that once homeowners move into these huge, impersonal homes, they realize the hollow promise of, “Bigger is Better.” The problem is that comfort has almost nothing to do with how big a space is. It is attained, rather, by tailoring a house to fit the way we really live and to the scale and proportion of the human form.
When it comes to design, Avant Homes believes in a philosophy based on the principle that bigger is not always better and comfort is born out of proper scale and beautiful details. We call this philosophy, “TAILORED FIT.” We are passionate about creating spaces that serve your day-to-day needs
The TAILORED FIT house reduces spaces and rooms that are rarely used, so there is more money available for the qualities that make a house a home. It removes wasted square footage, so that you can put the money saved, into the architectural detail, custom craftsmanship and unique character that will make it comfortable and uniquely yours. In short, TAILORED FIT favors quality over quantity.
Why Build With Avant?
Most people trying to build a custom home first find a lot they like, then meet with an architect and then hire a builder. Many times since these steps are independent of one another, they end up not working collaboratively and therefore go over their budget - that is where Avant Homes is different.
Full Service Design/Build Firm
Avant is a full-service Design/Build Firm that works with every aspect of the home building process to help you build the home you want, within your budget.
We help you (or work with your agent) to find a lot. We provide you with the pros and cons of the different lots and help determine the cost of the improvement each of them. We design a home that you want, which takes advantages of the views and contours of the lot. You will be provided with floor plans, elevations and a very detailed line-item budget before having to decide if you want to build with us. Ultimately, we build you a home you love and provide you with an interior designer to help with ideas of your colors and selections.
We begin every design from scratch. We have never built the same home twice, because we are not trying to fit you in to one of our designs, instead we want you to have a home that will nurture your spirit and reflect who you are as a person.
We begin with a very detailed Design Meeting in order to understand your specific wants and needs, as well as take into consideration pictures and examples you provide to design the home you want, within your budget. Although, many of the homes our clients want are a Mountain Modern design, we’ve designed more traditional homes in the Prairie, Craftsman Spanish Colonial home style, etc. If you can dream it, we can design it.
Avant Homes believes that a homebuilder should be fully transparent. As a result, we’ve created a proprietary online web portal where all of your expenses are tracked and all of your invoices are uploaded. You see every cost, every expense, and there are NO upgrade costs, NO add-on fees, NO change order fees.
