Custom One Homes Helps a Woodbury Family Realize Their Dream Home
Like any devoted parents searching for a new home, Kari and Scott were adamant about living close to the schools their children attend. “When you have school-age children, location takes top priority,” begins Kari. “We really loved our old neighborhood, but staying there would have meant long bus rides to school and a lot of additional driving to activities.”
Kari and Scott had never built a home before but they found a Custom One Homes’ model in Dancing Waters a year ago and really liked the home design. Then they met with Custom One’ New Home Specialist, Rob Fritz, who provided information on how they could customize one for themselves. Undecided about whether they wanted to tread on new construction territory, they started looking at newer existing homes but found them still pretty expensive, plus they knew they’d have to live with another homeowner’s floor plan.
Then they visited Stonemill Farms in Woodbury and discovered the last remaining Custom One Home’s home site on the north end of the community. “We loved the whole community aspect of Stonemill Farms,” says Kari. “We also knew some of the families whose kids played sports with ours — and they couldn’t say enough good things about living there. When we found out it was a Custom One Homes’ lot, we got back in contact with Rob Fritz right away and he put the home building process in forward motion.”
After they sold their home, Kari and Scott moved their family into a town home while their new home was being built. “Mike Rygh was extremely great to work with during the entire construction process,” says Kari. “He was working on several other job sites at the time, but he gave us a lot of personal attention. It made the entire experience a pleasant one.”
Kari is quick to acknowledge the professionalism and great rapport they also enjoyed with the Custom One Home’s Staff, Cheryl Mann and Rob Fritz. “Cheryl put together a huge binder that gave us the step-by-step construction details, so we knew exactly what was happening next and what decisions had to be made,” says Kari “The Selection Centers worked closely and carefully with us for every feature and product we needed inside and outside of our home. And Rob kept in contact with us from the ground-breaking ceremony to the closing when he surprised us with a photo book that chronicled the entire construction process. He made the entire process very family oriented and we have some great memories as a result!”
That wasn’t the only surprise Kari and Scott got with their first building experience. “Our home was completed a week before it was promised — including all of the landscaping,” concludes Kari. “How often do you hear of that happening with new home construction? Mike Rygh and Custom One Homes stayed true to their word and they are all absolutely wonderful to work with.”
