Stunning Views and Custom One Homes Brought Them to Highland Hills in Cottage Grove
Meeting Custom One for the First Time.
When Heather and Jason walked into a Custom One model home in Stonemill Farms in Woodbury, they insisted they were “just looking” and had no intention of building. Their older St. Paul home had been on the market for some time with no buyer prospects in sight, so buying a new home appeared to be a long way off.
After talking with Custom One’s New Home Specialist, Jeremiah Rygh that day, suddenly their dreams seemed within reach. “We loved the model immediately,” says Heather, “and Jeremiah completely sold us on the idea of working with a premium home builder.” So the couple proceeded cautiously.
Shopping for Land.
One of the concerns Heather and Jason had about building was finding the perfect home site. Under no obligation, Jeremiah took them around to several neighborhoods and showed them different land options. “The Lots they had available were amazing,” says Jason. “But we knew immediately this home site was right for us. Jeremiah made it possible for us to see what we wanted before we even knew about it.” The land they chose gives them an amazing panoramic view of a private, protected landscape.
Making the Final Decision.
Jason and Heather checked out other models and other builders and they began to move forward, but kept coming back to Custom One Homes and the Providence model. “We went back so many times,” says Heather. “And we went to so many models, but they just weren’t the right fit for us.”
In the end, Jeremiah became the final convincing factor. “We wanted a high quality home at an affordable price,” says Heather. “Jeremiah helped us justify our decision and assured us that we were making the best move possible. But the product really sells itself.”
The Custom One Team.
Heather and Jason were impressed with the entire Custom One team. Mike Rygh was great to work with and helped them put in a bonus room over the garage that was not the original plan. He even tracked down and installed a small window that Heather wanted to bring in some natural light.
Cheryl Mann, Custom One’s customer rep worked closely with the couple on schedules and product selections throughout the building process. “Cheryl and I talked on a daily basis,” says Heather. “She was on my speed-dial for seven months and beside us every step of the way.”
Heather also loved working with Amy Leferink, Custom One’s on-staff interior designer. “Amy was fantastic to work with,” adds Heather. “She has great ideas and understood the look I was going for. It’s so nice to have someone who understands the big picture. She was always there to guide us and lead us to make good choices. Amy is absolutely essential in the Custom One experience.” Jason agrees, “Working with Custom One Homes is like a well-orchestrated event.”
New Home Guarantee Program.
Custom One Homes’ Guarantee Program, which assured the sale of their existing home, allowed Jason and Heather to move ahead with their plans to build, making it stress free. “If we didn’t have the guarantee, we wouldn’t be where we are today,” says Jason. “We were very hesitant until Mike Rygh assured us that he would buy our St. Paul home.” To have someone have your back during a difficult time means so much,” adds Heather. “We didn’t have the ‘what if’ in the back of our minds.” Ultimately, their home sold before the new home was completed, which was the perfect scenario of all.
Their Favorite Things.
It’s difficult for Heather and Jason to pinpoint what they like best about their new home. When asked, they each name several favorites. “We love the lot, the play room, the kitchen and family room, the large closets, pantry, second floor laundry, the drop area off of the garage and of course our bonus room, which will be a work-out room or an office some day,” says Heather. And the list went on and on. “The flow of this house is so perfect,” adds Jason. “It’s perfect for everyday life. Entertaining is so much easier. Everything here has a purpose. 92% of the space is actually used because Custom One knows how people live every day.”
We didn’t even have to ask if Heather and Jason would recommend Custom One Homes to their friends. “We could talk forever about how great this experience was,” concludes Heather. “Even my mother recommends them to family and friends — and she built her home with another builder before we built ours.”
