Behind the Scenes of 3 Custom Home Builder Testimonials

January 3, 2018

With more than 100 custom home builder testimonials and nearly two dozen video testimonials, you might be thinking, “I wonder what really happened behind the scenes.” And we think that’s fair. The truth is that almost every customer we work with has some aspect of their custom home plan that is challenging. And, if we can brag just a little, that’s where we really shine. Our team has rarely met the sloped lot, wildlife permit issue, community regulation, or design challenge that we can’t handle. So since we love a good behind-the-scenes as much as anyone, we’ve gathered up some recent customer testimonial videos and are giving you the dirt that you don’t see on the video.

A “Lot” of Challenges

When the McFarlands came to us to build a beautiful Craftsman home, the house itself wasn’t the problem. It was the lot that had two key challenges. The first was that the lot was located on a bluff (no easy flat ground to build on). The second was that the community they wanted to build in had a strict 17’ height limit for each home which made maximizing views more challenging. Read their story and watch the video

It’s All Downhill From Here

The McFarlands are not the only ones who faced challenges building on their lot. When the Kings came to us with their idea for a 2,500 square foot home that would include 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and a rec room we loved the idea… and the views. But the extreme slope of their lot meant that we had to get creative to find a way to build their home as they envisioned it. Read their story and watch the video

Hello From Hawaii

Sometimes the behind-the-scenes challenge isn’t about building at all. Sometimes it’s about trying to manage the design build process of a home that is completely unique… while living more than 7,000 away. That was the challenge for Buddy and Estelle. They were living in Hawaii while their new home was being built in Washington. Read their story and watch the video Ready to begin your own story with Estes Builders?
