Frequently Asked Questions

Check out our most common questions below. If you have other inquiries please contact us!

I want to build a home, where do I start?

Schedule an appointment. At this meeting, we will go over our building process and answer all your questions. We will also begin discussing floor plans, design, square footage and pricing.

Why do I need to schedule a meeting?

At Abram Homes, we want to meet with potential clients to not only go through our process, but ultimately help you determine if building is the best route for you. This is not a sales meeting. We do this as a service to you and want to make sure that you are well informed about the building process so that you can make the best decision for your family.

How much will it cost to build my home?

When discussing the cost of a building with a contractor, the industry standard is to present the client with a cost of the home itself (by this we mean the building envelope) but that price discussion often leaves off a considerable amount secondary costs like sitework, septic tank, driveway, and appliances just to name a few. At Abram Homes we benefit clients by helping to “count the cost before you build the tower.” At our pricing meeting we strive to include vast majority of the secondary costs that clients are likely to incur during the construction of their home. We realize that you may not want Abram Homes to be contractually responsible for some of these, however, our desire is to make clients aware of the costs and to give them a placeholder for costs they may have otherwise overlooked. We then go through several ways that you can reduce that cost by either eliminating items or making changes to your material and finish selections. At the end of the pricing meeting, you are able to customize your contract, only including the items that you desire.

Do you have floor plans that I can look at?

Yes, we have a portfolio of floor plans available. You can view some of our floor plans under the “Build” menu tab here. Please scroll through our collection of recent builds that include finished exterior and interior pictures, as well as floor plans. Additional floor plans are available to view when you meet with a project manager. Please contact us to schedule a meeting.

Can you design a custom plan for me?

Yes, we are a custom homebuilder and can build any plan you desire, or work with you to create a custom plan. Do you already have the property picked out for your new home?

Is there a fee for a custom design?

There is not a fee for the custom design work, if you build with us. It is included with the price of the build. If you choose not to build with us, then you will only be billed for the cost of the design.

Is the building process complicated?

At Abram Homes, we desire to simplify the building process and make it an exciting experience. Our partnership approach will guide you through the entire home building process and make building your home both fun and memorable. From financing to designing the interior finishes of your home, our team strives to make your new home build a great experience for you and your family.

How long will it take to build my home?

Depending on the size of your home and our current build schedule, we typically average around 6 months.

What are your standard finishes?

Take a peek at the pictures and virtual tours on the “Gallery Tab” above to see the quaility of the finishes we provide for our homeowners.

I already own land. Can you build on it?

Yes, we are a custom homebuilder and can build any plan you desire or work with you to create a custom plan. We can build your dream home on your land or you can choose from a lot in a subdivision we are approved to build in. We would love to meet with you to discuss what you are looking for in your new home. If that is something that you are interested in, let us know when you would like to set up a meeting.

What is the average price per square foot on your homes?

We can design and build any plan that you like. As far as an average price per square foot, there are so many variables when pricing homes that we prefer to meet with you and gather information before giving out budget numbers. This allows us to give you a more realistic expectation of cost. This is a no obligation meeting that helps us better help you with your budget regardless of whether you allow Abram to build your new home or elect to use another builder. During this meeting, we will gather information to better help guide you in the planning process as well as visit some of our current homes under construction. We offer cost plus or fixed cost contracts. Regardless of which builder you decide to partner with, we would love to be a resource for you. If appropriate, we can have our Project Manager reach out to schedule a meeting.

I will be building a home soon. Can you send me some information?

Thank you for reaching out to us! We would be happy to send you some information regarding our current house plans. Please click the “Contact Us” tab above to provide your email address and/or phone number and we will have our Project Manager reach out to you with that information.

I have a floor plan that I really like, but need to make a few changes. Can you help us?

Yes! We have several designers that can create a full plan from scratch, or make changes to your existing plan. Contact us today to schedule a meeting!

I already have a plan, but I'm not sure about some of the design elements. Can you help me?

Yes! Our interior designer will walk you through the design and selection process over the course of several sessions. Our team will work to ensure a cohesive design on the inside and outside of your home that perfectly suits your style. We would love to meet with you to discuss what you are looking for in your new home. If that is something that you are interested in, let us know when you would like to set up a meeting.

Do you do renovations?
