In case you have not yet selected a builder for your new home, I would tell that we are extremely pleased with Stanley Jewell/Kevin Fowler who are building our home. WE would highly recommend them for your consideration. We looked at 3 other builders in the Nashville area for custom homes, and chose Stanley/Kevin. We have a cost plus contract with them.
What I have liked about using Stanley/Kevin is that they:
- Keep us informed about ongoing progress and issues that need to be discussed, resolved
- Look for the most economical options without sacrificing quality.
- Gave us a realistic budget and timeline for the work.
- Are very responsive to our needs, changes, and info.
- Overall, an honest and trustworthy team who we believe are always looking out for our best interests and overall budget.
As an additional data point, our architect – based in Memphis, is a pretty high end custom design architect and works with lots of the top builders in the Memphis area. He has designed several showcase homes in Memphis and his work is featured in numerous architectural magazines that I have seen. After his first visit to our build site, his overall summary was …” I wish these guys were building in Memphis. I would use them in a heartbeat.” He was particularly impressed by their attention to detail, the quality of the work they were expecting and getting from their subs (said the framing work was some of the best he has ever seen). He thought the job site was much cleaner overall than most job sites he sees, which he said spoke to their attention to detail and standards for their crews.
