Perfect Central Texas Location

Location is everything and one of the best benefits of building on your lot is that you pick the spot.

Space to Stretch Out

Whether it’s inside or out, building on your lot means you decide on just how much space you want. If you don’t already own the perfect lot, choose a lot or acreage that gives you options to have as much privacy as you desire, surround yourself with trees or live alongside a creek or natural area, or create amazing outdoor living areas to enjoy more time outside with family and friends. Inside your home, you’ll have the opportunity to create the spaces that make it feel just like home, like an open kitchen and living area or private dining for entertaining, a great room with cathedral ceilings, in-home theater, or spacious guest room, the canvas is yours.


Less Restrictions

Depending on where you have chosen to build on your Central Texas lot you should have the added benefit of few or no restrictions when it comes to choosing the materials, minimum square footage, exterior paint colors, elevations, and more. If you’ve chosen a larger acreage planned community lot you may have some covenant restrictions to abide by, but still enjoy the freedom to build the custom home of your dreams.
