From start to finish, our goal is to provide a completely transparent & seamless home building experience. With every project, our new homeowners can expect weekly project updates with images and next steps! Below you will find a few updates from the Waterfront 6020 Home.
Writing about construction for McSpadden Homes has certainly piqued my overall interest in custom home building. Recently I noticed that there was a new lake front custom home being built on the NC side of Lake Wylie that looked about the same size (or maybe a little smaller)
Last week Doug and Laurie traveled to Oklahoma for a Builder 20 meeting. Builder 20 is a club created by the NAHB (National Association of Home Builders) – there are lots of these clubs. Limited to 20 members – they are matched up with other builders all over the country (with a process that involves recommendations and interviews) so that none of them compete in the same markets. That sounds nice, huh? Other people in your industry to talk shop with, bounce things off of or talk about problems with . . . well, it is really much, MUCH more than that.
Today, I’m out at the cottage style custom home that McSpadden is building on beautiful Lake Wylie. It is in a gated community just over the bridge in South Carolina (just minutes from Charlotte). The house still has a few months to go before it is move in ready so let’s name this stage “The First Round of Finishing Touches”.
Relationships are important, wouldn’t you say? And how you treat others – in work or in play – makes an indelible statement about who you are; as a business and as a person. It is the bell that cannot be un-rung.
As you are thinking about your future McSpadden Custom home – how beautiful it is going to be – with the lovely, wooded lake-front property, the gracious view into your secluded cove, your gorgeous hard wood floors (heart of pine did you say?), the high ceilings, the custom cabinets, the infinity pool … Oh yes. You can go on and on thinking about your dream home.
So, rain. When do you start thinking about rain?
Today we are looking at a common problematic occurrence from a different point of view. The occurrence? A builder being late on their date of completion. We discussed this a month or so ago when I was posing questions to Doug McSpadden about how this effected the home owner.
This week I ran into a business colleague who I knew was building a water-front home here on Lake Wylie: so I asked her how things were going. “Not well” she said. “The builder is running roughly 2-3 months over”.
